Quote:The UK's highest court will give its judgement later on the cases of two severely disabled men who want others to be able to help them die.

It involves family of the late Tony Nicklinson, of Wiltshire, who had locked-in syndrome, and Paul Lamb, of Leeds, who was paralysed in a road crash.

They want the law changed to allow doctors to assist patients to die.

The Supreme Court judgement is expected on Wednesday.

The court has had to decide if the law prohibiting assisted suicide is incompatible with the European Convention on Human Rights because it denies Mr Lamb, and others like him, the right to choose the timing of their death.

This is just insane, Why can't their family choose? Who wants to see your husband? best friend? or any relative suffer?
