Shocking Spin From The Pro-Deathers

Want to see what pro0deather propaganda looks like? Read this, prattling on and on about the “independent” Falconer Commission and that the only people against legalizing assisted suicide and euthanasia are religious nuts. This is what we’re up against, folks. By vigilant.
Assisted dying: whose life is it anyway?
Every month, people from Britain make their way to Switzerland to seek the help of the Dignitas organisation. More than 150 have made the one-way trip so far, often in wheelchairs, sometimes on stretchers. Every one of them has made it clear repeatedly and in writing that they want to die and that they have medical evidence that lends support to their wish. Every one of them would prefer to die in Britain and preferably in their own homes, rather than make the journey to a foreign country.
That people in such distressing circumstances make these arrangements is the direct responsibility of others - who profess kindness, but who practice cruelty. People of extreme religious views have blocked attempts to bring the law of England and Wales more into accord with that of Switzerland, Belgium, Luxembourg or the Netherlands. Opinion polls demonstrate that they possess only minority public support, but their political influence is far greater than their numbers warrant. more
