Assisted Suicide Bill 2015 - Questions & Answers


On Friday 11th September 2015 the House of Commons will be debating and voting on a Private Member’s Bill to legalise assisted suicide.  Below you will find some answers to frequently asked questions about the law and ethics of assisting suicide in the light of Catholic teaching.






St. Eusebius of Vercelli.(c.283-371)

A native of Sardinia, he joined the Roman clergy and in 340 became bishop of Vercelli in Piedmont.  He fought Arianism with all the ardour of his Sardinian temperament, and with Dionysius of Milan and Lucifer of Calgiari was banished to Palestine and Cappadocia in the East.  Before returning to Italy under Julian he visited St. Athanasius at Alexandria.  St. Jerome wrote: ‘on the return of Eusebius, Italy put off her mourning.’ He was the first bishop who lived with his clergy under a Rule, an example which was followed by St. Augustine.  He died in peace at Vercelli on August 1st 371, although he has at times been called a martyr for his sufferings.

Quote for Today.

‘For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.’


(2 Paul –Timothy 1: 7)
