Last week former Archbishop of Canterbury George Carey came out in favour of assisted dying; this weekend, he was joined by another Anglican leader - Archbishop Desmond Tutu. (Full Christian Today Article)
God isn't Christian.
I fully support assisted dying for those who have no hope of recovery, and only face excruciating pain and loss of dignity till their body gives out and dies from the disease that is ravaging it.

I was a volunteer in Hospice and watched the slow agonizing departure people suffered. They were born into this world and swaddled in a diaper, and suffering terminal non-Hodgkins Lymphoma departed this world after living for weeks knocked unconscious by liquid morphine because their pain was too much to bear.

If they don't want to suffer that, I support their right to free themselves.
