25 January: Assisted Dying Discussion
Lincolnshire Friends were joined by a guest speaker who is a solicitor specializing in wills and probate. The meeting heard about how the current law operated and how judges are generally sympathetic but have their hands tied. Several friends gave testimony of how the topic of assisted dying has influenced their lives and the decisions they wish to make regarding their own death. The meeting also heard testimony about disability and the right to choose.

Hard questions were asked and no easy answers provided. Everyone was in agreement that further discussion is required.
