Assisted suicide: law to be decriminalised 'by back door' from next week
Final rules set out by the Crown Prosecution Service will make it clear that those who help others end their lives are unlikely to face court if they acted out of compassion.
However the factors against prosecution are likely to be altered from existing draft guidance, after it was claimed that they would leave the most vulnerable members of society at greater risk while providing immunity to spouses regardless of their motives.
The man who assisted in Saul's suicide received capital punishment.
2 Samuel 1:9-16 He said to me again, ‚ÄėPlease stand over me and kill me, for anguish has come upon me, but my life still remains in me.‚Äô So I stood over him and killed him, because I was sure that he could not live after he had fallen. And I took the crown that was on his head and the bracelet that was on his arm, and have brought them here to my lord.‚ÄĚ Therefore David took hold of his own clothes and tore them, and so did all the men who were with him. And they mourned and wept and fasted until evening for Saul and for Jonathan his son, for the people of the LORD and for the house of Israel, because they had fallen by the sword. Then David said to the young man who told him, ‚ÄúWhere are you from?‚ÄĚ And he answered, ‚ÄúI am the son of an alien, an Amalekite.‚ÄĚ So David said to him, ‚ÄúHow was it you were not afraid to put forth your hand to destroy the LORD‚Äôs anointed?‚ÄĚ Then David called one of the young men and said, ‚ÄúGo near, and execute him!‚ÄĚ And he struck him so that he died. So David said to him, ‚ÄúYour blood is on your own head, for your own mouth has testified against you, saying, ‚ÄėI have killed the LORD‚Äôs anointed.‚Äô‚ÄĚ
Proverbs 8: 5 O ye simple, understand wisdom: and, ye fools, be ye of an understanding heart. 32 Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my ways. 33 Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not. 34 Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors. 35 For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the LORD. 36 But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me LOVE DEATH."
