End of life care: What do religions say?

leave a comment »

Do religions approve of end-of-life care? Or do they think that, like the LIverpool Care Pathway when it is badly implemented, it is too close to encouraging assisted dying because it odes not encourage continued artificial nutrition and hydration? A good BBC ethics article.

Margaret Spufford – living is a creative act until you die

leave a comment »

I’m a great fan of obituaries – one of the few aspects of newspapers that seem to see people as a whole. I met Margaret Spufford a few times when she and I were much younger and she was a lovely person. What her life illustrates is how living is a creative act until you die.
