Archbishop voices fears.
Most Rev Dr Barry Morgan has urged Lords to reject Lord Joffe's proposals both on the grounds of principle - that it is morally wrong to take a life in this way - and on the grounds of practicality since vulnerable people might feel under pressure to commit suicide if this bill became law.
He said: 'I am deeply unhappy with this bill.
'Not only do I believe it is wrong to take one's own life in this way but also because I believe it to be a slippery slope.
'I am also deeply concerned at the possibility that the introduction of this provision would lead to pressure being placed on vulnerable individuals to follow the euthanasia route because of fear of pain or because of family or social expectations.'
