Lord Carey's support for death for sufferers - SPUC Pro-Life's response

12 July 2014

London: Leading anti-euthanasia group SPUC Pro-Life has responded to Lord Carey's support for Lord Falconer's assisted suicide bill. SPUC Pro-Life was represented officially in the High Court in the Diane Pretty and Debbie Purdy assisted suicide cases.

Paul Tully, SPUC Pro-Life's general secretary, said: "This is a blow for those sharing the burden of suffering, physical or mental, in the world. Sadly they will feel more friendless and worthless. Christian thinkers and leaders have long understood what it is to suffer, and this has led to great strides to relieve suffering - by both personal and social initiatives. Christians must not abandon suffering people now when they are under greater threat than ever from Supreme Court judgments and Lord Falconer's bill."


Paul Tully, SPUC's general secretary, can be contacted on 07939 178719 or 020 7820 3127. SPUC's communications department can be contacted on:

    Ottaviani! By admitting to wacnhitg 'eastenders' you have dropped a good number of brownie points in my esteem ;-)How can you commit such 'sin' and pretend you're an EF traddie???Joking aside, I agree with you, the secular 'daily diet of immoral garbage' that the average UK Citizen is exposed to from the morning Page 3 'Daily Nude' on the breakfast table, through the drivel pumped out on the radio all day to late night 'adult TV' viewing, means that society has been so softened-up to the anti-life message, one wonders why the pro-abortion lobby are wanting to spend money directly on furthering their cause. Maybe people have a conscience after all and the abortionists are afraid of losing ground!
