A law on assisted dying would be merciful Debbie Purdy did not ask the law lords for the right to die, nor did she ask that her husband be allowed to help her die. Those are intensely private permissions that no one readily devolves to a court. Ms Purdy, who suffers from multiple sclerosis, asked for clarity over whether her husband would face prosecution should he help her take her life in Switzerland.
Supporting us financially, in any way you can, will help us to improve end of life choices and enable us to support people (regardless of their circumstances) to make sure their rights at that time are fully respected. Every contribution is a step in the right direction towards greater choice
Friends at the End is a Scottish Charity promoting knowledge and understanding of end of life choices and campaigning to change the law to allow Assisted Dying in the UK.
