New Film, Plan 75, Shows ‘A Disturbingly Realistic Glimpse’ of Assisted Suicide

(The Christian Institute) – It is “not fiction” to suggest that many vulnerable people would be pressured to end their lives if the UK legalised assisted suicide, a senior columnist has said.

Writing in The Times, columnist and former editor of The Sunday Telegraph Dominic Lawson said that the film Plan 75 “confronts its audience with a disturbingly realistic glimpse of a morally bleak future”, which could come to pass in the UK.

The film sees a future Japanese government instigating ‘Plan 75’ to manage its ageing population, where over 75-year-olds can be killed by euthanasia in exchange for $1,000 to be used by either themselves or their family. CONTINUE
