Resistance Charter 2010 calls on British MPs to protect disabled, terminally ill

Baroness Campbel
The Care Not Killing Alliance, Not Dead Yet UK, and other groups are calling on British MPs to sign the 'Resistance' Charter 2010, promising to maintain legal protection for all disabled and terminally ill people. In the wake of increased public statements that ill and disabled individuals have a "duty to die", these groups are calling on parliament to provide better palliative care and independent living services as humane and ethical alternatives to assisted suicide.
