Patients in a permanent vegetative state will now be allowed to die by withdrawing food and water. This is barbaric & uncivilised. If you let a pet die like that, you would be rightly locked up. If the patient has reached the end of their life, they should be allowed to die by lethal injection, not by depriving them of food and water.
That would be the humane thing to do.
Most Brits would agree with this.
80% of the British public agree that a person with a terminal and painful illness from which they will die, should be allowed assistance to die.
Despite this MPs will not vote for this change in the law.
It is yet another example of where the MPs are out of touch with their constituents.
