About us

"By establishing a social policy that keeps physician-assisted suicide and euthanasia illegal but recognizes exceptions, we would adopt the correct moral view."

Ezekiel Emanuel

"...assisting suicide is ...not love; it's projecting your own unfinished business."

Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, author of On Death and Dying

"It started with the acceptance of the attitude, basic in the euthanasia movement, that there is such a thing as life not worthy to be lived."

Leo Alexander, 1947, on the Nuremburg Trials

"Euthanasia is a long, smooth-sounding word, and it conceals its danger as long, smooth words do, but the danger is there, nevertheless."

Pearl S. Buck, 1950

“We can never entrust our governments with the right to think they have the wisdom to be able to decide who should die.”

Sister Helen Prejean

Here is information about us.

Humanists Against Assisted Suicide and Euthanasia (HAASE) is a group of individuals from various walks of life united by our lack of religious beliefs and our suspicion about the wisdom of legalising assisted suicide and/or euthanasia. We think society should continue to be merciful in situations where someone has assisted a suicide or taken a life for genuinely compassionate reasons but that the law against assisting a suicide should remain.

HAASE is owned and overseen by HAASE Ltd (registered in England, no. 14695785), a not-for-profit company dedicated to campaigning against the legalisation of any form of assisted dying. Registered office: 82A James Carter Road, Mildenhall, Suffolk, IP28 7DE

HAASE’s aims and work are described here. It will provide a distinctive voice in the ongoing debate about whether or not to legalise assisted/assisted suicide/euthanasia.

Kevin Yuill is interim director.

Committee: HAASE will appoint an advisory board and trustees.

“I do not believe any civilized society should be at the service of death. I don’t think it’s human to become an agent of the angel of death.”

Eli Wiesel, Holocaust survivor
