DaveRam, there`s also been another case in Britain concerning a girl, 11 years old, who wants to die at home instead of undergoing treatment at hospital, which is unlikely to help her anyway. Thus she will have to spend the last months of her life with nurses, having the terrible therapy and discomforts. The girl has voted for home life, but the case, as far as I remember, has been taken to court. The family has accepted her choice. The girl says that she`s been living the last 8 years in hospitals, on drugs, injections and other painful things, and now she has made her decision.
