A Matter of Life and Death

A very interesting piece was published by the telegraph today, written by Professor John Keown. He concludes "If we are not to slide, greased by euphemism, down the Dutch slippery slope and if equal protection of the law is to be guaranteed to all (not least the most vulnerable), the duty of the DPP is clear: resolutely to uphold Parliament’s clear prohibition on assisting suicide."
He has previously given an extremely interesting talk at the House of Lords, and I hope he soon returns to this side of the pond to stimulate more debate in our House of Commons.
