9632: right to die

So is this the ending those of you who denied his right wanted?

I hope you're happy now.

Rest in peace, Tony. Life was not fair to you, but neither were we as fellow human beings. You have been a true fighter and shown great courage when the rest of us would not be able to. Lots of love from a stranger.


I sincerely apologise if anyone is offended but I just have to let it out. Yes, I have very strong feelings regarding this issue.

I have been following Tony Nicklinson's story for the last year or so, and personally I feel it is not right to force him to go through what he has gone through. If by any chance I ever end up in his position, I'd want to know I have the right to end my own misery.

It really broke my heart when I saw the video of him crying after the court decision was announced last week.

I felt that has broken him, as he refused food or treatment for pneumonia after that. He eventually escaped the prison that is his body, but it didn't have to end this way.

There has to be a more dignified way.
