Scottish prelate welcomes vote against assisted suicide

Catholic World News - December 06, 2010

Archbishop Mario Conti of Glasgow says that he is “very satisfied” with a vote in the Scottish parliament to reject legislation that would have allowed for assisted suicide.

The bill was “fundamentally wrong,” the archbishop said, because it would have “breached the absolute prohibition in law on the taking of innocent life or assisting in doing so.” He expressed the hope that Scotland would be “spared further parliamentary pressure on this account and turn our best efforts to the care of the dying.”
