Dr Peter Saunders: Legalising assisted suicide would have 'collateral effects'

Dr Peter Saunders, CEO of the Christian Medical Fellowship, speaks to Sky News about Noel Conway's legal bid for assisted suicide.

He says: "If you change to law to allow assisted suicide in any cases at all, then this will have collateral effects. It will place under pressure vulnerable people to end their lives out of fear of being a burden on the state or to carers and it opens it all for exploitation and abuse."
