A Time to LiveDiane Morrison, via The Good Book Stall
The author seeks to demolish the idea that opposition to assisted suicide is purely religious, and that its supporters are all compassionate secularists. There are Christians and atheists on both sides of the argument – indeed this book is written in reply to another, also by an Anglican priest, which comes down in favour. George Pitcher sets out in detail why he disagrees, exploring how society has come to this point. He also considers in detail the stark realities of Oregon, the Netherlands and Switzerland – all places where assisted suicide is legal and which are used as examples by those advocating the same here. The medical, legal, cultural, social and political angles are thoroughly investigated, and he ends by explaining his own theology and its affect on his views.
He presents a well-informed and persuasive case. The only flaws I found were a tendency to dogmatism in the section devoted to society, and comments of jaw-dropping crassness on the subject of abortion and the opponents thereof. After setting out so compelling a case for the sanctity of all life, this sounds a jarring note to say the least, but it should not be used to discredit the rest of what he has to say. If you are looking for good, relevant information from a different viewpoint to the assisted-dying lobby, you will find it here.
