Desmond Tutu, 85 records video supporting assisted dying (video)

Archbishop Desmond Tutu stands for human rights, including compassionate respect for a person’s choice at the end of life. He recently sat down with Dignity in Dying UK to share his thoughts on this important issue.

As a Christian I believe in the sanctity of life and that death is a part of life. I hope that when the time comes, I am treated with compassion and am allowed to pass on to the next phase of life’s journey in the manner of my choice.” Watch the video in which Tutu shows his support for Lord Carey’s drive for an assisted dying law in the United Kingdom and similar initiatives in South Africa.
