vulnerable members of society. Recent proposals would allow assisted feeding

to be withheld in some cases even though patients could thus be deliberately killed. Those who advocate euthanasia, if frustrated in their efforts to legislate for living wills, are likely to press for such powers of attorney in law. We must be ready for this threat.

I would urge your readers to write to their MPs expressing these concerns, and invite them to contact SPUC for further information on the proposals.

Yours faithfully, JOHN SMEATON ,London SW1.
