Tony Nicklinson's right to die

Change the law

    1. Jane Nicklinson
    2. Petition by

      Jane Nicklinson

      Melksham, United Kingdom

We, the undersigned Petitioners supported Tony Nicklinson's wish to die with dignity by seeking help from a doctor to take the final steps to end Tony's life because he could not end his life without help due to the extent of his disabilities. Now that he is no longer fighting for this we continue to support anyone who finds themselves in a similar position to Tony.

We also support a change in the law to this effect.

      This is a tricky one, But i think although it should not be lawful to take one's life i do think that the court should grant allowance to anyone who is able to prove for say more than 12 months that they indeed wish to end their life. We all have the right to die with dignity and care, It is not within any governments right to force someone to live in pain despite what they might think. We have human rights for a reason. The rights are simple they are about enforcing quality of life, if one can prove their quality of life is dire due to severe illness or disability they should legally be able to exercise the right of dying legally.

      I believe the right to choose when to die is an essential human right.

      because one day I might wish to die if I had the same problems as he has

      It should be our own right to die peacefully if we'd like to.

      Because it is cruel and inhuman to deny people like Tony Nicklinson and Paul Lamb the right to end their suffering.
