Lord Falconer's pro assisted suicide amendment to the Coroners and Justice Bill has been rejected in the House of Lords.
See John Smeaton's post for further details.
I was intrigued by the report of what Baroness Kennedy apparently said:
Baroness Kennedy QC, contrary to expectation, opposed the amendment. Although generally favouring personal choice, she argued that in the situation of offering assisted suicide to the terminally ill, the offer of choice would result in an erosion of choice. (my italics)
Isn't "choice" the mantra of the pro-abortion lobby?
