Dignitas

Today marks the 10th anniversary of a British person turning to Dignitas for what has become known as ‘assisted suicide’.

No such option is available in the UK and some believe that this needs to change. Of course, many disagree.

The interviewee in this programme (scroll to 1:41:40) describes a situation where her husband, sufficiently ill to be embracing this option, was really too ill to be travelling. Would such a facility in the UK be a humane option?
