How far out of balance has our national morality become?
On the one hand we force loving parents to allow their child to die, in order to “end his suffering”. We bring the full weight of the law against his parents, in their wish to travel every road before giving up on their son.
On the other side of these maculated scales, a man in full cognisance of his terminal condition and wishing to end his own suffering, we force to endure an unbearable end of life.
I am proud of the Britain beneath my feet, but I despair of the nation we have become.
