CPS announces new rules for assisted suicide.

I mentioned that there was mention of assisted suicide in Britain following two cases Kay Gilderdale and Frances Inglis along with Sir Terry Pratchett's  announcement that he has Alzheimers and wants the ability to commit assisted suicide. in a previous post

The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) just came out with new rules about this

Which is reiterated a little better for laymen at http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/article7040839.ece. I say a little better since they basically repeat what the CPS says.

As I said in my previous post, I think that if we can give my pet a humane and painless death, we should be able to allow a human the same courtesy. So, I am glad to see that the CPS has come out with these new guidelines.
