Assisted Suicide in Scotland
Ms MacDonald, whose End of Life Assistance Bill faces a crucial vote in the Scottish Parliament next week, revealed details of a poll showing 77% of Scots agreed people with “intolerable terminal illnesses” should have the option of being helped to end their life.
Just 12% said they did not agree while 11% said they did not know.
A total of 1001 Scots were questioned for the survey, which was carried out for the Green Party in April by polling company Angus Reid Public Opinion.
The proposed legislation has split opinion with doctors’ leaders and religious groups opposed to it.
