Court allows slow-motion euthanasia in the UK
June 09, 2020
CWN Editor's Note: “In the United Kingdom, a 34-year-old unnamed patient (MSP) with a severe but treatable bowel problem is going to be kept in an artificial coma and denied sustenance until he dehydrates to death,” according to the report. MSP has a history of severe depression, and his parents “are convinced, given his advance directive and many conversations, that he would now rather be dead than alive.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
