English Woman Challenges Right-to-Die Laws

A woman with multiple sclerosis is challenging English law to ensure her husband will not be prosecuted if she chooses to end her suffering.

Debbie Purdy, 45, went to court to learn whether her husband would be prosecuted if he helps her travel to a clinic in Belgium or Zurich, Switzerland, to commit suicide, if her condition becomes unbearably painful. Two of the country's judges say Purdy has the right to argue her case before the country's High Court.
