I had not heard of Tony Nicklinson's challenge to end his life; that this has failed is not unexpected.

He and his wife, explain in this video, that they will appeal. It is a disgrace that they should have to do so! If the Swiss politicians can make a reasonable attempt to sort out appropriate laws, there is no excuse for the UK crowd!

There was an earlier discussion on this topic here; - http://richarddawkins.net/discussions/638367-pro-suicide-propaganda

A man paralysed from the neck down has lost his High Court case to allow doctors to end his life without fear of prosecution.

Tony Nicklinson, 58, from Melksham, Wiltshire, communicates by blinking and has described his life as a "living nightmare" since a stroke in 2005.

Mr Nicklinson and his wife said they would be appealing against the decision. - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-19279840
