Right-to-die campaigner Jean Davies, 86, starved herself to death

Following our earlier publication on the passing of Jean Davies today the Sunday Times published a front page article on her death: she starved herself to death.  Four weeks into her fast, Jean Davies, 86, told The Sunday Times: “It is hell. I can’t tell you how hard it is. You wouldn’t decide this unless you thought your life was going to be so bad. It is intolerable.” Read the intro here.

Also added here an obituary by Michael Irwin.

The Oxford Mail published an article on the issue of starving to death, featuring June Whitehouse and Jean Davies. Read it here.
