PLC urge the Govt to reject euthanasia

The Pro-Life Campaign (PLC) has urged the Government to reject draft legislation on assisted suicide being prepared by campaigner Tom Curran, whose late partner Marie Fleming lost a landmark right-to-die case in the Supreme Court in 2013.

Cora Sherlock of the PLC told The Irish Catholic that “if our laws are telling people that they have nothing further to contribute, that’s a real contradiction in our society and I don’t think it’s something we should be encouraging”.

Meanwhile, a new organisation is being launched to “counteract the push in Ireland to introduce the right to assisted suicide and euthanasia” in Ireland.

Hope Ireland will hold its inaugural conference at the RDS, Ballsbridge, Dublin on Saturday, June 6.
