Patrick Stewart advocates for assisted suicide

STAR Trek actor Sir Patrick Stewart spoke of his decision to sponsor an organization that advocates the legalization of assisted suicide in Britain.

In an interview with the Sunday Times, the 70-year-old British actor said that he is campaigning for a right-to-die law.

“I have a strong feeling that, should the time come for me, having had no role in my birth, I would like there to be a choice I might make about how I die,” he said in the interview.

The British actor gave the interview shortly after writer Terry Pratchett spoke in a BBC documentary about assisted suicide.

Both Patrick Stewart, Terry Pratchett and sponsoring organization Dignity in Dying, which campaigns for the changing of the UK law, call for the legalization of assisted suicide for adult patients suffering from an incurable disease in terminal stage.

In the interview given to The Sunday Times, Patrick Stewart said he decided to support this approach after an open heart surgery that he went through five years ago.

Last year a public inquiry on assisted suicide has been launched by a foundation financed by Terry Pratchett. Chaired by former Justice Secretary Lord Falconer, The Commission on Assisted Dying will publish its conclusions in December.
