Desmond Tutu shows you can be religious and support VAD

DesmondTutu by Rodger Bosch AFP Getty imagesThe Archbishop of Canterbury, Catholic Cardinal and Chief Rabbi all condemn voluntary assisted dying as against the principle of the sanctity of life. They have been mischievous in presenting this as the definitive religious view and assuming they have a monopoly on morality. There are many of faith, including clergy, who value life just as much, but who see no sanctity in suffering and nothing holy about agony. Bearing in mind that Tutu is one of the most famous religious figures in the world his endorsement is significant and will help to pierce the myth that being religious means being against assisted dying.
