- Immoral not to abort unborn children with Down's Syndrome, says Richard Dawkins
- The bleak new reality in care homes for the elderly [LifeSiteNews.com, 21 August]
Anthony Ozimic, SPUC's communications manager, commented: "This is utilitarian tick-box medicine, in which hospital managers put a selfish desire to evade challenging work above the right to life and their duty of care to their patients. In a society in which human life is regarded as disposable, it is inevitable that bureaucracies will put pressure on ordinary people to agree to terminate lives deemed wasteful. The Mental Capacity Act and the Liverpool Care Pathway have worked to entrench this mentality in the National Health Service."
