Hardtalk – Should a paralysed person have the right to die?

 

Tony Nicklinson isn’t terminally ill, he is in terminal despair. Since he suffered a massive stroke six years ago he has been paralysed.

The only movement he can control is in his eyes and his blinking. His unimpaired brain – his conscious self – is locked inside a body beyond his command.

Tony wants from life one thing above all else – the right to die. To be more precise he is fighting for the right to be lawfully killed.
