Petition I call on the government to change the legislation on assisted dying
I've been living with Motor Neuron Disease (MND) for 12 years, I'm unable to use my arms and hands, and have muscle wastage round my neck, I can't wash, dress or feed myself, however, there is a possibility that one day I could be paralysed from the neck down, unable to talk or Swallow.
whilst I'm happy getting on with my life. If the time come when I was paralysed from the neck down, unable too talk or swallow, then I wouldn't want to continue living, and I think it's my right as an individual to have the opportunity to die with dignity helped by a doctor, it shouldn't be impossible for politicians to create legislation that gives me that right, but also protects the weak and vulnerable in society
