India Supreme Court Declares Right to Privacy

This week, the Supreme Court of India ruled that privacy is a fundamental right.


While not framed as a right to die case, at least one concurring justice observed: “An individual’s rights to refuse life prolonging medical treatment or terminate his life is another freedom which fall within the zone of the right of privacy.”
