A British court has denied the plea of a severely disabled man to be allowed to die.
Judges told Tony Nicklinson, who suffers from locked-in syndrome after experiencing a stroke and who challenged the country’s laws in court, that the decision to allow him to die was not their’s to make but that of the country’s politicians.
Nicklinson, who did not take the news well, said he will appeal the decision.
