Britain Fails to Adopt Change to Assisted Suicide Laws.

From the happy AnglicanMainstream, news that the recent attempt in Britain to change the laws regarding prosecution of those who assisted mentally competent, terminally ill patients to hasten their deaths has failed:

Thank you for your prayers and action. Last night Lord Alderdice’s amendment to the Coroners and Justice Bill was withdrawn. The amendment sought to remove the possibility of prosecution for those who help a person to die where that person has an incurable and disabling illness and a coroner has certified that the person has a free and settled wish to die.
