Anglican leadership accused of "scaremongering" over assisted dying

From The Telegraph-

A prominent Church of England cleric has accused her own leaders of “scaremongering” over Lord Falconer’s assisted dying Bill, as David Cameron said he feared it might lead to people being “pushed” into euthanasia.

Canon Rosie Harper said the use of “emotive” language was preventing rational debate on the subject and served to mask the reality that many believers actually support such a measure.

She spoke out after leaders of Britain’s major faiths issued an unprecedented joint attack on Lord Falconer’s Bill, describing it in a letter to Parliament as a “grave error” which would be “disastrous” and result in people “colluding” in the notion that someone seeking an assisted death is of “no further value”.
