Sorry to disturb your Sunday, but I wanted to let you know about a front page
story in today's Sunday Times
[[link removed]] that we have been working on.
With our support, a senior mental health professional with terminal breast
cancer has written a powerful account of her plan to travel to Dignitas this
week. She was only able to do so anonymously, for fear of her plans being
jeopardised in any way, and she has been forced to travel prematurely in case
further lockdown restrictions get in the way of her plans.
I really hope you get a chance to read her words, if you can please pick up a
copy or read the story online
[[link removed]] (there is a paywall).
The comments below the article are also worth a read - they show the strength of
support (please add your own comment

"By this time next week, I’ll be dead. Like many of the people who have
succumbed to Covid-19 this year, I am being forced to die in the presence of
strangers, in unfamiliar surroundings, without my husband, family or friends to
In my case, however, it is the result of the antiquated laws on assisted dying
in the UK, which have compelled me to travel to a foreign country to die alone."

This story comes as fifty senior medics write to the Sunday Times
[[link removed]] to join our calls for an inquiry into the UK's blanket ban on assisted dying.
After this week's fantastic news
[[link removed]] about New Zealand changing the law, this is a tragic reminder of the choice
being denied to those living in the UK. Until we change the law this will happen
again, and again.
That is not acceptable.
