Anti-euthanasia group Care Not Killing says politicians have a moral obligation never to legalise the practice.
A group that campaigns against assisted suicide has warned against legalising the practice for terminally ill patients, despite a new survey suggesting over 70 percent of people here now support it.
The YouGov poll, commissioned by The Sun newspaper, found 73 percent of people wanted the law banning assisted suicide to be changed.
But Care Not Killing says politicians have a moral duty to protect the right-to-life.
Former GP, Andrew Ferguson from the anti-euthanasia organisation - who's also a Christian - told Premier's News Hour why he thinks politicians must stand firm:
A Monthly Gift Of £8 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 UK is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.
For a monthly gift of £8 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.
