Religious reasons for supporting assisted dying
11th December 2012
If you think all ministers of religion are against assisted dying, think again. It is true that the religious hierarchies are against it, but a growing number of Christian and Jewish clergy have a more nuanced view and now think it can be appropriate in certain circumstances. The once uniform religious response of 'no, it's ungodly and wrong' is no longer the only response.
Many clergy will still oppose assisted dying, but there are now religious voices whose pastoral experiences and theological training lead them to permit it for those who so wish.
