The right to die in scotland

Independent MSP Margo McDonald has claimed in a Scottish Parliament debate that the terminally ill should be allowed the right to “assisted death” at a time of their choosing.

Although the law is not likely to change, the Scottish Parliament does have the devolved power of healthcare…I wonder if it extends to allowing euthanasia? And would that start a cross-border trek for those who wanted to die with dignity but needed help, travelling from other parts of the UK to Scotland?
