Euthanasia (81332-C2-¶161.M)

Amend ¶161M by adding the following at the end of the current language:  We reject euthanasia and any pressure upon the dying to end their lives.  God has continued love and purpose for all persons, regardless of health.  We affirm laws and policies that protect the rights and dignity of the dying.

Rationale

The current Social Principles make no mention of persecuted Christians, who number in the many millions around the world.
