Anglican bishop sounds warning on assisted suicide bill

21 August 2015


"Seeking to assist people to die well without killing them is both a Christian and a deeply-rooted British value."

An Anglican bishop has spoken out against assisted suicide. The Rt Revd Mike Hill, the Bishop of Bristol, said that the desire of the seriously ill "not to be a burden" is "capable of ruthless manipulation".

A bill is due to be debated in Parliament at Westminster on 11 September. Paul Tully, SPUC’s general secretary, commented: "We congratulate Bishop Hill for his courageous witness to the sanctity of human life. He has given a good example to his fellow Anglican bishops and clergy and to all Christians.

"Seeking to assist people to die well without killing them is both a Christian and a deeply-rooted British value."
