The right for UK citizens to access the means of assisted suicide and/or euthanasia.

Allow the practice of assisted suicide and/or euthanasia in the UK.
I believe assisted suicide and euthanasia should be a human right for those who need and deserve the right to die. No human being deserves to suffer from an illness. It should be a choice of all critically unwell individuals if they wish to be euthanized or have the help to commit suicide.
As mentioned before, I do believe people of ill-health and who have a short time to live already, do deserve the right to die. In dire circumstances, it should be available for UK citizens to have the choice or their families to have the choice for the ill individual to die with dignity, to end suffering for the person of ill health and their families too. I have done much internet research and have found many countries around the world and states in America which have allowed euthanasia.
As of yet, this particular issue hasn't affected me and I sincerely hope it never does. However it still is important to me and a few close friends of mine had experienced such anguish watching a family member suffer for no reason, when they could and should have been allowed to die with dignity and without pain and suffering.
