After reversing his lifelong opposition to assisted suicide two years ago, archbishop emeritus of Cape Town, South Africa, and Nobel Peace laureate Desmond Tutu, revealed Thursday that he would like to have assisted suicide as an option if he needs it and urged Christian leaders to support the option for the terminally ill.
Writing on the eve of his 85th birthday in an op-ed for The Washington Post, Tutu explained that as he has grown closer to the time when he knows he will eventually die, he has become more convinced that people deserve just as much dignity in death as they expect in life.
"Just as I have argued firmly for compassion and fairness in life, I believe that terminally ill people should be treated with the same compassion and fairness when it comes to their deaths. Dying people should have the right to choose how and when they leave mother Earth. I believe that, alongside the wonderful palliative care that exists, their choices should include a dignified assisted death," Tutu wrote. more >>
Controversial senior pastor of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, Bishop Eddie Long, returned to his flock Sunday after rumors emerged last week that he allegedly traveled to Mexico to receive treatment for his undisclosed "health challenge."
