Nicklinson euthanasia push undermines security of us all

21 July 2010

A leading anti-euthanasia group has said that a disabled man's push for euthanasia undermines everyone's security. No Less Human, a group within SPUC Pro-Life representing disabled people, was responding to the legal challenge launched by Tony Nicklinson, who is seeking voluntary euthanasia by lethal dose. Janet Thomas of No Less Human commented: "[T]he killing of vulnerable, innocent people, whether able-bodied or not, is never right, even when those people ask to be killed. The deliberate killing of any innocent person damages the interests of us all." [SPUC, 20 July]
