Strive for appropriate care for all

I HOPE the Reverend Tullett gave more positive words of comfort and hope to Neville Badger's mourners at his funeral than those he used in last week's article on page 5. What a bankrupt and sad statement from a minister of God. As someone with a daughter with MS I have some experience of difficulties when the caring agencies fall down on their standards of care.Don't we all need to strive for an appropriate care for all? Society should bare the cost or are we putting guilt on many people making them feel a burden to society? When there is a family network near and available (not always I know) is there a need for people to be uncared for when official carers are not around? More than once I have had to rush out and lift my daughter when she has fallen over whilst on her own.As a Christian I also think that churches could help to plug gaps in caring services as well. If the will is there targets can be set and attained. For the disabled, the suffering elderly and those with unwelcome pregnancies, surely killing is the most destructive way of dealing with matters. If we do not continue to value life the euthanasia lobby might speak with an ever louder voice, causing the social dangers to society which it could never adequately legislate for.MICHAEL HURST - Wyvern Close, Weston
