Assisted suicide ‘creates problems for wider society’

Via The Christian Institute:

Legalising assisted suicide would cross an “essential line in the sand” and negatively affect wider society by creating a culture of death, columnists have warned.

The comments follow the case that hit the headlines last week of Jeffrey Spector, a British man who went to Dignitas in Switzerland to get help to kill himself, six years after being diagnosed with an inoperable tumour he feared would paralyse him from the neck down.

Writing in the Telegraph, a former editor of the paper Charles Moore said that it is “worth bearing in mind” that there are “many thousands of people who can and do bear not only the thought but also the reality of quadriplegia”.
