Tracey Spicer – journalist, presenter, broadcaster and Ambassador for dying with dignity law reform – writes of the terrible choice she was confronted with to relieve her mother’s end-of-life suffering.  It’s a choice that too many have to face while we don’t have the compassionate, responsible legal option of voluntary assisted dying.  Read her story at

Update: With the story, you’ll now see 299 comments, the vast majority supportive of voluntary assisted dying legislation.  Many of those who have commented have shared their own experiences of the unacceptable end-of-life suffering of their loved ones and why they want this legal choice.
