URGENT Contact Lords immediately, assisted suicide debate today

This afternoon or this evening, Lord Falconer's very damaging amendment to the Coroners and Justice Bill is expected to come up for debate (see SPUC's previous campaign alert for in-detail information about the amendment). Please contact peers NOW and ask them to oppose Lord Falconer's proposal.

Some excellent resources, which can be forwarded as weblinks to Lords, are:

This blog also has many posts about assisted suicide and the Falconer amendment.

If you have been in correspondence with any Lords over the C&J bill, please consider forwarding one of these links to them, perhaps quoting whatever snippets of the articles are most telling. If you haven't been corresponding with Lords, please contact one or more of them now: you could simply select a Lord or Lords to write to who has the same initial as your surname: Lords are listed in alphabetical order on SPUC's website campaign page http://www.spuc.org.uk/campaigns (scroll to the bottom of the page).

Many thanks for your help.

(For information - please note that other threatening amendments tabled by Lord Alderdice and Lord Joffe have been withdrawn in the past day or so.)
