Assisted Dying Proposals Defeated

We give thanks to God for the States of Deliberation decision last week. Very special thanks to Father Paul for his unstinting efforts in rallying the Catholic community to the cause.

Thank you to everyone who wrote emails or letters to the deputies; to those who sat on the Parish steering committee; to Tom Saddington for organising the night long prayer vigil and all who came along during the night; to Peter Hearne for being on duty all night with the minibus; to the UCM for looking after the refreshments; to all who turned out at the States Chambers to form a respectful protest on all three days and those who sat in the viewing gallery; to all those who wrote to the Press and all who turned out at the various debates in the preceding weeks; to Dr Carmen Wheatley who was instrumental in bringing the film Fatal Flaws to Guernsey; and finally to everyone of you who prayed for this outcome.
