Former Archbishop of Canterbury Lord Carey joins fresh call for assisted dying
by Alex Williams, Premier:
Former Archbishop of Canterbury Lord Carey of Clifton has joined fresh calls for Britain to follow the example of five US states and Canada by allowing assisted dying for the terminally ill.
The independent crossbencher admitted he was “out of step” with the Church of England over the issue but his desire for a change in the law was driven by “love and compassion”.
He said: “The example of Canada and other countries show that laws can be made that protect the most vulnerable and halt the unnecessary prolongation of life, which for some is not worth the candle.”
