Pledge to get 10 people to sign the government petition for disability cuts

This pledge closed 3 months ago

In 2010 Jennifer Alex Spencer wrote: "When you read this, I'll be dead..I wish that no human/animal should ever go through life as I did, or endure so much deliberate cruelty to be placed on them..' The last written words of Jennifer (Alex) Spencer a retired teacher denied direct payments for personal assistance by her local authority.

The letter was found in her apartment addressed to the local newspaper. Following a stroke which left her blind in one eye and a wheelchair user Ms Spencer had her direct payments stopped by her local authority, even though her circumstances had not changed.

Could you live with the deaths of disabled people on your conscious like the Tories are going to have to one day. What a bleak day in history that we will have to explain to our children and grand children that we let disabled people kill themselves rather than help them
