Bishop thanks Catholics for opposition to Assisted Dying Bill

(Ellen Teague and Sebastian Milbank, The Tablet)
  Bishop John Sherrington, lead bishop for life issues for the Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales, has thanked Catholics for writing to peers and praying that the Assisted Dying Bill might be defeated.  “I would like to thank all those who have prayed that this Bill might be defeated and who have written letters to peers sharing their experiences and opposition to the Bill,” he said. He told The Tablet: “The passion associated with this debate invites further reflection about how we care for our elderly, the financing of such care, as well as the relationship between health and social care.” He called for “good spiritual accompaniment at all stages of sickness and terminal illness when such care can bring great solace and love to those at their most vulnerable.” (...)
