Comment on: Minister backs 'assisted dying' bid
Anonymous | 10-Mar-2014 4:31 pm You write- Assisted dying, is an absolute minefield in that you're attempting to legalise an illegal act (murder). This potential legislation invariably only allows for someone to provide the necessary drugs for the patient to end his or her own life, with the patient then self-administering: that isn't murder, is it? These proposed acts are currently stopping short of including a solution for the awful situation of people such as Tony Nicklinson, who couldn't actually self-administer.
I heard a whistleblower on BBC Radio 4 this morning - I think the name was Lisa Martin. Awful story, as usual: you do the right thing, then find yourself unemployable. Telling people they have a duty to raise concerns, simply isn't enough!

Perhaps some things defy solution, although in part over-reactions to current circumstances, without properly thinking about the future, probably is an issue with this one.
