Christian group opposes paralysed man's right to die bid

A man has waived his right to anonymity in a legal battle to end his life with the help of a doctor

Paul Lamb was severely injured in a car accident 23 years ago and is almost totally paralysed.

He now wants to become the figurehead of the right-to-die case started by locked-in sufferer Tony Nicklinson.

Mr Lamb, who lives in Leeds, said he feels he has to take up the challenge: "Somebody needed to do it, it needed to be kept alive and it needs keeping alive until it gets passed.

"Whether it's with help of what's going on here now or the next person, or the next person.

Alistair Thompson is a Christian and a spokesperson for the group Care Not Killing.

He told Premier's Marcus Jones on the News Hour he's saddened by Mr Lamb's story but doesn't support a change in the law:

A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
