This is the last episode for the month of July – time for our monthly news roundup. In this episode, we’ll be talking about assisted suicide, children reading the Bible, and Chinese authorities shutting down a virtual church service.

STORY #1 – Most Americans Say Assisted Suicide is Morally Acceptable

“The American Medical Association has described physician-assisted suicide as a serious risk to society and ‘fundamentally incompatible with a physician’s role as healer.’

“Millions of Americans disagree.

“Two-thirds say it is morally acceptable for terminally ill patients to ask their doctors for help in ending their lives, according to a new survey from Nashville-based Lifeway Research. A similar number says doctors should be able to help terminally ill patients die.” (Lifeway Research)
