In the past five years or so, at least 50 persons have escorted relatives and friends from the UK to Zurich, Switzerland – to the Dignitas flat there, for an assisted suicide. Most of these individuals are known to the police, and many of them have been questioned by the police upon their return to the UK. Yet, until last May, none of them had been arrested. Now even that person is not to be prosecuted.

Why don’t the police just leave them alone in the hour of their grief?

Better, why doesn’t the English Parliament have the guts to introduce a physician-assisted suicide law for the terminally ill and hopelessly ill, competent adult?
