act on assisted.dying

The headlines have been captured this week by the confession of Ray Gosling, a freelance documentary-maker, to smothering to death his homosexual partner, who was suffering


from AIDS. The confession was aired in a 12-minute documentary on death and dying, broadcast by BBC East Midlands on Monday, 15 February, at 7.30pm. Mr Gosling, 70 has since been arrested on suspicion of murder.
Although he is currently refusing to answer police questions about the identity of the person he killed, when and where, it is important to be aware that the case is likely to be used by pro-euthanasia lobby to continue to apply pressure for a change in the law on assisted suicide.

Ray Gosling confesses to killing homosexual partner on BBC Documentary (YouTube)

Keir Starmer, the Director of Public Prosecutions, is due to publish guidelines within the next few days. The guidelines will outline the circumstances in which he would or would not bring a prosecution against someone assisting in the suicide of another person, both within England and Wales and overseas.  In effect, the guidelines will provide those who want to help others die with a “check-list” of how they can avoid prosecution whilst achieving their purposes.

The Problems with legalising Assisted Suicide (YouTube)

Write to BBC

Write to the BBC, asking why they did not report Mr Gosling's confession to the BBC immediately, but rather waited two months before airing the programme. The documentary is the latest in a series of programming on the BBC showing bias towards the legalisation of Assisted Suicide. Please stand up for the many disabled people whose views on assisted dying appear to have been marginalised by the BBC coverage.  The BBC has a duty to provide balanced coverage of such issues, and their failure to do so is critical on a matter of such significance as this.
You can help by complaining to the BBC using their official complaints form online.  To do so, click here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/complaints/forms/
Alternatively phone them on 03700 100 222 or write to BBC Complaints, PO Box 1922, Glasgow G2 3WT.
