Say no to Assisted Suicide and Euthanasia in Jersey

As health care professionals with a duty of care for our patients in Jersey, we oppose the proposed assisted dying legislation – it would be among the most extensive, anywhere in the world. We want Jersey to be a place where we help all members of society to feel as though their life has meaning and value. We are concerned about the most vulnerable members of our society who may feel coerced into a decision they would not make if the law did not permit it. We have particular concern that adequate safeguards cannot be found for Proposition P.95/2021. [1]

In other countries where euthanasia has been introduced, the safeguards have not been enough. The scope of those who are eligible has increased, proper paperwork has been lacking, people have been coerced into the decision and the law has extended to include those without capacity.

Please sign to add your name to our growing list of health professionals in Jersey who oppose this legislation and would not participate if it was passed.

Yours sincerely,
Dr Rachel Ruddy

Consultant Psychiatrist, Jersey
