Poll on assisted suicide

Sky news has a story about a lady going to the Dignitas "clinic" (for the reason for the inverted commas, see here.) She complains that politicians denied her the dignity of ending her life in her own home. There is a token balancing element in the story with CNK saying rightly that vulnerable people could feel obliged to die if they feel that they are a burden on others.

There is a poll on the page which is currently strongly in favour of assisted suicide. I encourage you to go and cast your vote:
