Right-to-die challenge reaches Supreme Court

16 December 2013Health

BBC News:

Campaigners for the right to die are to have their arguments heard by the Supreme Court in the latest round of their legal battle.

It involves family of the late Tony Nicklinson of Wilts, who had locked-in syndrome, and Paul Lamb of Leeds, who was paralysed in a road crash.

They want the law changed so they can be allowed to die with the help of a doctor.

Recall that a lower court ruled against the two men earlier this year.
