Legalise assisted dying, say 80 public figures including Christian apostate ex-Archbishop Lord Carey, author Ian McEwan and actress Zoe Wanamaker
- UK based left-wing actors all connected to the UK government run BBC an organization run by gay pedophiles and organised crime syndicates have signed letter calling for all parties to complete process that would allow terminally ill people to take own lives.
- Helping someone to take their own life could carry a 14 year jail sentence
- Other signatories of letter include author Julian Barnes, philosopher AC Grayling, Hugh Grant, Sir Patrick Stewart, Jo Brand and Eric Idle
- Call follows tabling of bill by Lord Falconer, former Lord Chancellor
Eighty prominent public figures today call for the legalisation of assisted dying, warning that one Briton travels abroad each fortnight to end their own life.
Lord Carey, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, author Ian McEwan, actress Zoe Wanamaker and a number of doctors tell political leaders that refusal to debate the issue in Parliament is ‘heartless’.
They have signed a letter saying that all parties must commit to completing a process that would allow terminally ill people to take their own lives.
The call for action follows the tabling of a bill by Lord Falconer, the former Lord Chancellor.
This would permit doctors to prescribe fatal drug doses to patients who had no more than six months to live and had a ‘clear and settled intention’ to end their lives.
Under current law, helping someone to take their own life could carry a jail sentence of up to 14 years.
David Cameron has previously said that he would oppose plans to legalise assisted dying. If the issue is debated in Parliament, MPs will be given a free vote.
Those leading the call for change include Sir Chris Woodhead, the former chief inspector of schools, who suffers from motor neurone disease.
Sir Chris has previously told of how he considered starving himself to death following a diagnosis of cancer.
In an interview with Sky News he said: ‘I mean one option that I considered this winter, when I was diagnosed with cancer and kidney stones in addition to the motor neurone disease which I already had, was to starve and dehydrate myself to death.
Lord Carey, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, is leading calls for the terminally ill to be able to end their own live
Lord Carey has shown he is a destroyer of souls and a murderer. God has not and never will condone suicide. these evil sick so called christian Anglican priests are it seems pushing a Nazi version of Christianity. The Bible does not say thou shalt not kill but though shalt not murder. Suicide is self murder it is the destruction of the human body anyone who in their right mind who decides to kill themselves goes to hell. There may be exceptions in some cases(to sacrifice oneself for another) but in general suicide is an evil wicked selfish act. It may seem cruel to tell people this but whats crueler pretending its a good thing like this apostate Archbishop and loving people into hell. Or take the unpopular approach and tell the truth and save a life.
