World Right to Die day marked in Jersey (UK)

In the UK island Jersey, our member organisation End of Life Choices Jersey spent attention to World Right to Die day. On Tuesday Michael Talibard gave a speech in the Royal Square. He called on States Members to respect the views of a citizens jury.

The event was held ahead of a debate in the States Assembly later this month, when Members will consider whether adults in Jersey should have a legal choice to end their lives in the event of terminal illness and/or unbearable suffering.

During the week before the States debate, End of Life Choices will invite Members to a special meeting. This meeting is addressed by Silvan Luley, director of our Swiss member society DIGNITAS – To live with dignity – To die with dignity.
