Archbishop speaks out against celebrity-driven assisted suicide campaign

2 February 2010

The Anglican Archbishop of York, England, has criticized what he describes as a celebrity-driven campaign for legalised assisted suicide. Dr John Sentamu said he was more interested in hearing what disabled people thought about assisted suicide. Dr Sentamu warned that legalising assisted suicide would soon lead to an acceptance of so-called mercy killings. The Archbishop also questioned the reliability of a UK poll of one thousand people, which suggested that three-quarters of British people are in favour of a change in the law regarding assisted suicide.
