Actor Julie Hesmondhalgh who plays Hayley Cropper is a member of the Humanist Association and fully supports assisted suicide as she acts it out as Hayley on Monday. About 80% of people agree that assisted suicide should be legal but there is no hope of any politicians having the guts to legalise it any more than they have the guts to decriminalise cannabis use. It seems to me there is a big gap on such socially libertarian issues between politicians and people which Class War should tap into in the election. ‘Our bodies- ourselves’ was an early womens health handbook and its message has wide appeal today. We should be able to choose what to do with our bodies without interference by the state whether its choosing when to die or when to get high.
