Michael & Lesley
Lesley's new book!
Following the death of her brother, John Close,
in 2003 at the Dignitas clinic in Switzerland Lesley has worked
tirelessly for a change in the law to allow an assisted death
for terminally ill, mentally competent adults who have expressed
a wish to die. She has appeared many times on television and
radio programmes about assisted dying as well as taking part
in live debates.
In February 2014, her book Assisted Dying: Who Makes the
Final Decision? co-authored with Jo Cartwright of campaigning
organisation, Dignity in Dying, was published by Peter Owen.
This important new book explores the historical, legal, medical
and religious aspects of assisted dying and includes seven
case studies of those who have suffered at the end of their
lives due to the present law. Further details can be found
from Amazon and all good booksellers.
