(The Christian Institute)— Legalizing assisted suicide in Guernsey would be dangerous for everyone on the island, church leaders say, and politicians should instead focus on caring for the vulnerable.
Representatives from dozens of island churches took the “exceptional” step of writing an open letter to citizens, warning, “As a community we need to celebrate and support all of life and not actively seek to terminate life.”
Their comments come ahead of legislators considering a proposal which would allow people to kill themselves with the assistance of a doctor.
