Legalizing euthanasia : British parliament votes again against

On 11th September 2015, the British Chamber of Commons voted by a large majority against a bill that proposed legalizing euthanasia by 330 votes against to 118 in favour. Among the principal voices that contributed to the good outcome of this battle was that of Baroness Jane Campbell, independent member of the Chamber of Lords and muscular atrophy patient.

In 2009, Campbell had already convinced the English parliament to reject a draft bill that would have allowed patients to be helped to travel to countries where euthanasia is legal (ANDOC, 21-IX-2015).
