The "National Executive Council has asked the church's doctrine and worship committee to develop theological guidelines which can be used by the state, by medical professionals and by families. The guidelines will focus on the use of extraordinary measures to prolong life when those measures may diminish the quality of life. This is not the first time the Anglican church has delved into this area. In 1975 a task force was asked to look at the theological implications of death and dying. Its report was published four years later."

Notes
The editor speaks about watching the "very moving and compelling video whose subject was Dr. Donald Low. .... In February this year [2013], Dr. Low was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumour; he died Sept. 18 [2013]. The video I watched was made a few days before his death. Dr. Low expressed no anxiety about dying itself, but talked candidly of his fear of a long and drawn-out painful death. Why, he asked, isn't assisted suicide offered as an option for people facing end-of-life issues, enabling them to die with dignity ?" Editor refers to the 1999 Anglican Church of Canada report entitled "Care in Dying: A Consideration of the Practices of Euthanasia and Physician Assisted Suicide" which stated "We believe that respect for persons would not be well served by a change in law and practice to enable a physician, family member, or any private citizen to take the life of another, or to assist in their suicide". "All of the issues related to this most complex ethical matter are sacred. I am looking to the church for help. I do not need the church to solve it. I do need the church to help shape relevant questions and use its gifts of scripture, tradition and reason to offer fresh insights for the world in which I live. In Ecclesiastes 3, the seventh verse indicates 'a time to keep silence, and a time to speak'. I, for one, need the church to speak".

"[By] Margaret Somerville".
"Viking. Published by the Penguin Group. First published 2000". -- verso of t.-p.
The author looks at what she calls "ethical healthcare canaries", issues which "send us early-warning signals about the ethical climate in our society" (p. x) and asks "Is it inherently wrong ?" "I propose ... that we can view as inherently wrong that which breaches either of two values. These values are that we must have profound respect for life, in particular human life, and we must act to protect the human spirit -- the intangible, invisible, immeasurable reality that we need to find meaning in life and to make life worth living -- that deeply intuitive sense of relatedness or connectedness to the world and the universe in which we live. That which fails to show respect for life, in particular human life, or puts at serious risk or harms the human spirit is inherently wrong. Throughout this book I explore how some uses of our new science and technology or approaches to health care or medical treatment might breach one or other or both of these values". -- Prologue, pp. xi-xii.
