Woman suffering from Crohn’s disease is paying to end her life in Switzerland after government cutsShared by:
A woman suffering from Crohn’s disease is set to pay £10,000 to a Swiss euthanasia clinic to end her life after Government cuts caused her to lose vital care. Marie Lopez, who has suffered from the debilitating digestive disorder for more than 30 years, has chosen to travel to the Lifecircle clinic in Basel in about three months' time. Nearly 10 years ago, social services cuts meant the amount of help she received in her home was reduced from 38 hours a week to seven, forcing her to pay someone to come instead.
