UK: Another Locked-In Patient Seeks Death

Another Brit with locked-in syndrome seeks to be killed in the UK.
Locked-in man continues legal fight for 'right to die'
The wife of a man whose legal challenge was heard alongside Tony Nicklinson's has spoken of her husband's determination to continue his fight.

The man, who can only be known as Martin, also has "locked-in" syndrome after a stroke four years ago.

Martin, 47, is seeking professional help - possibly resulting in a trip to the Swiss organisation Dignitas - to end his life. more
