After the suppression of an assisted suicide debate in Cork, a new twist in the UK. Its the case of Kathleen Gilderdale, charged with the attempted murder of her daughter Lynn, a chronic ME sufferer. Im not sure about this, but this may the first time a campaigner for a better understanding of the clinical basis of this condition has been so charged. The ME Association reports the legal move without comment. The case doesnt seem to be covered by the terms of the Joffe Bill on assisted suicide, as no suggestion has appeared that Lynn gave her consent to end her life. That would explain the charge of attempted murder.
