- Lord Falconer has just announced that he is about to introduce a new bill into the House of Lords to legalise assisted suicide along the lines of the Oregon model – assisted suicide for mentally competent adults who have less than six months to live.
- Members of the House of Lords should note that statistics released just last month (full report here) show that the number of assisted suicide prescriptions and deaths in Oregon, once again, increased in 2012 and has now reached an all-time high.
- Falconer’s bill, however, only requires a twelve month life expectancy and so is thereby even more liberal than Oregon’s.
