Euthanasia, like any issue to do with death, is a highly emotional issue. I used to be against it, but changed my mind after the death of Martin Hames in 2003.
The photo above is of Chantal Sebire who has appealed to French President Nicolas Sarkozy to allow her to die by euthanasia.
Sebire suffers from esthesioneuroblastoma, which attacks the nasal cavity. She has lived without a sense of smell and taste since 2000 and now the tumour has evolved and eaten into her jaws, and then eye sockets, leaving her blind since last year.
She suffers from “atrocious bouts of pain that can last up to four hours at a time”.Tags: euthanasia, France
