Right to Die with Dignity

Comment 19th July 2010

As it is possible to benefit from "assisted suicide" in Switzerland, why must a British Citizen leave their homeland?

Medical advances have enabled life to prolonged beyond that which only 50 years ago, would have been unimaginable. 

It follows that life may be prolonged into circumstances that are beyond those which a given individual wishes to endure.

Surely this is akin to medical experimentation. How long can we keep this person alive, not how long can we help this person to live his/her life?

Why does this matter?

The most basic human right is life itself. Why then should Law control its duration?
