Huge increase in assisted suicide cases in Oregon and Switzerland
16 April 2012
There has been a huge increase in assisted suicide in Oregon and Switzerland, says a UK doctor.
Peter Saunders, head of the Christian Medical Fellowship (CMF), said that the latest figures suggest that since 1998 assisted suicides have risen by 450% in Oregon and by 700% in Switzerland.
Dr Saunders argues that such increases are an inevitable result of legal approval of assisted suicide. [Peter Saunders, 15 April]
