The Director of Public Prosecutions issued his interim guidelines on assisted suicide on September 23rd 2009.
Though the guidelines are to go through a period of consultation before becoming policy, Christian leaders and legal experts have grave misgivings.
I’d like to suggest two things here:
- Please pray, lobby, discuss and generally enter in to the debate.
- I would be interested to see comments from you all on your thoughts and views on this from both ‘gut instinct’ and your considered biblical understanding. Perhaps you think this is a no brainer? If so can you articulate why to non Christians? These are the ethical debates that today’s Pastors are bombarded with, and people are looking for real answers – tough but a great opportunity too…
