Matt Vickers #TEDXChristchurch
In 2011, Lecretia Seales was diagnosed with a brain tumour – and in 2015, in the final stages of her life and with her husband Matt Vickers by her side, she went to the High Court seeking the choice to receive assistance to die from her GP. Today, her now widower Matt continues to campaign for consensual physician-assisted dying for terminally ill patients, carrying, as he says, “a responsibility to ensure that Lecretia’s personal sacrifice wasn't for nothing.”
This talk will challenge us in so many ways...
Assisted dying... infringement of human rights?
Agh... what a story...
