Tony Nicklinson is now at peace; how many more people will be forced to suffer?
Tried and tested
Assisted-suicide and/or euthanasia is legal in Columbia, Belgium, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Switzerland and three American states: Oregon, Washington, and Montana.
Tony Nicklinson, who was paralysed from the neck down following a stroke in 2005, died peacefully today of natural causes.
He wanted the right to die yet was unable to take his own life or take a cocktail of lethal drugs prepared for him.
High Court judges ruled the issue was for Parliament to decide; knowing that, why did they admit the case?
Mr Nicklinson said he was “devastated” by the decision – in an article he wrote for the BBC, he had described his life as “a living nightmare”.
Tony Nicklinson and so many others could have been spared physical and mental torment.
