Care Not Killing

Care, Not Killing is an alliance of several organisations who are opposed to the legalisation of euthanasia or physician-assisted suicide in the United Kingdom. Their goals include promoting more and better palliative care, ensuring that existing laws against euthanasia and assisted suicide are not weakened or repealed during the lifetime of the current Parliament, influencing the balance of public opinion against any weakening of the law. They are opposed in their efforts by pro-assisted dying groups such as Dignity in Dying and Humanists UK. Since its inception, the role of Campaign Director had been filled by the CEO of the Christian Medical Fellowship, Peter Saunders, who worked for the organisation pro bono. He left the role in December 2018.[1]
