The last year introduced bill on assisted dying has attracted more public responses than any other in the history of the Scottish Parliament. The bill is understood to have inspired more than 10,000 people to voice their opinions on the emotive subject.
Last December, a group of junior doctors have written to MSPs urging them to oppose the bill to legalise assisted dying in Scotland.
In September last year, Scotland, liberal Democrat MSP Liam McArthur has launched a consultation on legalising assisted dying. Earlier that year, in June, he introduced a bill on the topic.
