The tragic fate for man with locked in syndrome.
Tony Nicklinson’s plea for his life to be terminated was rejected by the High Court, after being diagnosed with locked in syndrome following a stroke in June 2005.
He wept outside the courts after the verdict was given. He has described his life as ‘demeaning, undignified and intolerable’, being paralysed and not being able to speak whilst remaining fully conscious. Evidence that injustice has once again flourished where justice should prevail at the hands of our courts.
This is another case for the laws concerning assisted suicide to be reconsidered. In these situations the question that begs to be asked is who is in control of a person’s life: the person or the state. Lord Justice Toulson stated after the case that declaring assisted suicide to be legal ‘would be making a major change in the law’
Let's be thankful that we life in an age where you can hire assasins on the internet to do dirty work, check it out Tony?
God save our gracious Queen...
