Right-to-Die Proponents Lose Appeal

GavelAs I have previously discussed, a high-profile right-to-die case has garnered a lot of attention in Britain. Two paralyzed men sought to change Britain’s law on the right-to-die. They also wanted protection from prosecution for those who would help them end their lives. The proponents for changing the law lost their most recent appeal.  With advocates on both sides strongly campaigning for their views, an assisted dying bill will be debated soon.

See Kathleen Hawkins, Right-to-Die: For and Against Assisted Suicide, BBC, June 24, 2014.

Special thanks to Joel Dobris (Professor of Law, UC Davis School of Law) for bringing this article to my attention.
