Harry Potter - Katie Leung: 'Patients Should Be Given The Right To Die'
Harry Potter star Katie Leung has waded into a euthanasia debate in her native U.K.
The right-to-die issue blew up in Britain on Thursday (16Aug12) after Tony Nicklinson, who is almost completely paralysed, lost his legal battle for an assisted suicide.
The decision has reignited the emotionally-charged debate over whether paralysed or terminally-ill patients should be allowed to decide when and how to die - and Leung has come out in support of Nicklinson.
In a post on Twitter.com, she writes, "Anyone living in such a clearly insufferable and rare circumstance like Tony should have the right to choose what to do with their life."
