Hope Ireland Webinar, 20th June 2020
A Conversation about Euthanasia & Assisted Dying

Hope Ireland is a coalition of medical professionals and disability rights advocates who aim to bring informed perspectives to the debate around euthanasia and assisted suicide in Ireland.

We seek to contribute to the public discourse on this issue with evidence based arguments on why the introduction of assisted suicide and euthanasia is a regressive step for vulnerable people – particularly the elderly and those with disabilities.
