Radio debate on euthanasia and assisted suicide tomorrow

Mrs Dominica Roberts of the ProLife Alliance will, on present plan, take part in a broadcast debate tomorrow (Thursday 7 May) with Dr Philip Nitschke, the Australian advocate of assisted suicide and euthanasia. The programme is Breakfast on Radio 5 Live which, as well as being broadcast on the radio and various digital TV systems, can be heard online. You can read about the case against euthanasia on SPUC's website. We understand that the programme will include an opportunity for the public to take part by telephone. The number, at least for people in the UK, is 03700 100 500. The programme runs from 9 am till 10 am. The BBC tell us that the news-agenda can shift and, thus, the subject of the debate can change, but it looks as though Dr Nitschke and Mrs Roberts will be discussing these issues tomorrow.
