Why No One Should Have Power to End Life

This report (about a man trapped in a paralysed body and not the coma he was diagnosed to be in for 23 years) is a reminder (should we ever need one) that doctors should not have the power to deny treatment to people and therefore end their life prematurely. They don't always get things right, nor is their science perfect.

By all means, a person should be able to chose to end their own life in a dignified manner, but no-one should have the power to end another's life.
