Glasgow archbishop speaks out against assisted-suicide bill
February 16, 2010
Archbishop Mario Conti of Glasgow is speaking out against legislation that would legalize assisted suicide for the terminally ill and physically disabled.
“It is wrong in principle for someone to take their own life, it is wrong in principle for someone to help them to do so,” said Archbishop Conti. “Attempted suicide is no longer a criminal offence, assisted suicide should remain one. The law should not be changed, the good of society demands that it be not changed.”
The British Medical Association and Scotland’s leading Protestant body also oppose the bill.
