World: Prince Charles: Condolences for an assisted suicide

  • The elderly couple had to go abroad to die. Peter and Penelope Duff of Bath, England, chose to go to a euthanasia clinic in Switzerland. Both had cancer and both over 80. They couldn’t do it in the U.K. because it’s not legal. The Prince of Wales (who’s kind of old for a mere prince, by the way) sent a letter of condolences to the wealthy couple’s family, whose death is becoming a talking point in the right-to-die debate in the U.K. Can we just blame cancer instead of euthanasia? Seems easier to agree on. source
