We had to help our paralysed son die: Anguish of parents quizzed by police after taking crippled rugby player to suicide clinic
This guy was paralysed and could not find a reason to continued his life and active sportsman who was paralysed playing ruby a sport he loved.
UK has a law against assisted suicide but Switzerland does not and that where he was taken it was his decision and he was granted his wish at a Swiss clinic.
The problem is now UK is trying to address this issue legally even though they really have no durastiction, when tourist are abroad they come under the country they visits law. I do wish the UK government would halt this intrusion and respect the law of Switzerland.
It would of course been different if the young man did not want to die but he really did want to meet his maker. I am glad he got his wish and if I wish myself to end my life due to a lingering illness or pain or in a similar situation as this young rugby play. I would want to make the decision to live or die and would want to have the same choice Daniel took.
The mother of a paralysed rugby player who killed himself at a suicide clinic has defended her right to help him end a life 'filled with terror and indignity'.
Julie James is said to have been questioned by detectives investigating the death of her 23-year-old son Daniel in Switzerland last month.
He believed his damaged body had become 'a prison' and had tried to kill himself several times since a rugby training accident left him paralysed 18 months ago.
