The death lobby in the UK is gaining ground. A poll conducted on behalf of the Times newspaper shows 74% of people to be in favour of medically assisted suicide. They want doctors to be allowed to help terminally ill patients to end their lives. Even the Royal College of Nursing has dropped its opposition to assisted suicide and adopted a neutral position after a 3 month consultation with members. This horrifies me. I am totally opposed to assisted suicide.
