T.D.'s Back Bill To Allow For Assisted Suicide

Seven years after Arklow based woman Marie Fleming lost her High Court and Supreme Court case to change Irish laws on assisted suicide, TDs voted last night in favour of a Bill that would allow for assisted dying.

They backed the Dying with Dignity Bill by 81 votes to 71, after government TDs were allowed a free vote.
The legislation would allow people with terminal illnesses to get medical help to end their lives.
