MS woman wins right-to-die review


news.bbc.co.uk

A woman with multiple sclerosis has won permission to bring a High Court challenge to clarify the law on assisted suicide.

Debbie Purdy, 45, from Bradford, is considering travelling to a country where assisted suicide is legal.

But she is worried her husband, Omar Puente, could be arrested on his return from Belgium or Zurich, Switzerland.

Her lawyers argued the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) acted illegally by not providing guidance.

This is one of those cases where IMO the law is totally and utterly wrong.

If we are to have basic human rights, the right to die should be included - in strict, controlled circumstances.

I've heard the arguments against assisted suicide and I think they are totally wrong and without foundation, particularly those regarding religion.

If a person cannot tell another how to live, why should they be able to tell them how to die?

Personally, I welcome this challenge to the courts, and hope it is the first step towards a legal right to die.
