An Australian court on Friday issued a landmark ruling that a quadriplegic man who wants to die had the right to stop being fed by his carers.
Western Australia's chief judge Wayne Martin said the Brightwater Care Group would not be criminally responsible if it ceased feeding and hydrating severely paralysed Christian Rossiter, 49, who had begged to be allowed to die.
