WATCH: Tony's Story - A New Film From CARE

Assisted Suicide
28 October 2020
Tony and Nola

A few years ago, our Chief Executive Nola Leach lost her husband of nearly 50 years after a two year struggle with Alzheimer's.

In this film, Nola speaks honestly and openly about the struggles and griefs of watching Tony deal with the disease. She also speaks about the joys found even in the sorrow.

Assisted Sui­cide — should the law change?

This film comes as pressure is growing in England and Scotland to change the law and legalise assisted suicide.

Nola points out that the current law gave her confidence that doctors were truly acting in Tony's best interests. She also articulates a fear many of us share, namely that changing the law could open the door to abuse and exploitation.

We hope you find the film helpful, informative, challenging and yet encouraging, too. Nola's final comments reflect the amazing hope and joy that is found in Jesus. That, ultimately, is our greatest hope in life and in death.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, 5 who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.
1 Peter 1:3-6 NIV

Assisted Suicide

Where assisted suicide is legal, it makes vulnerable people feel like a burden. CARE works to uphold laws that protect those people, and to assist them to live—not to commit suicide.
