Wicklow couple to challenge assisted suicide laws
on 16/09/2012 10:33:06
Reports in today's Sunday Times and Sunday Business Post said the case is being taken by a Wicklow woman, who suffers from multiple sclerosis, and her husband.
The couple said that the current law, under which anyone assisting a suicide is open to prosecution, is unconstitutional.
It is understood the couple's lawyers will argue that the law is flawed because it allows able-bodied people to take their own lives, but not those with disabilities.
