How would this case have been decided if it was in the United States?
The European Court of Human Rights ruled on Monday that terminally-ill Diane Pretty did not have the right to die.
The verdict came several hours before it was announced another patient, known only as "Miss B", died peacefully in hospital. She died last Wednesday just weeks after the UK's High Court had ruled that she should be allowed to die.
And this after a French Court decided a month or so ago there was "The right to not be born". Is this the pro-life position, taken to extremes?
