SPUC defends vulnerable lives on BBC Politics Show

Earlier this week Chris Brennan of SPUC Bristol branch was interviewed for BBC 1's Politics Show on the subject of assisted suicide. Chris was opposed by Sir Terry Pratchett, the author, who has a form of Alzheimer's. Sir Terry emphasised individual choice and the terrible nature of Alzheimer's. Chris responded that all human life is precious and should be protected. He said that the availability of assisted suicide will make sick people more vulnerable and afraid of being a burden on others. He added that the law against assisted suicide is being changed by stealth. Well done Chris!
