The second man whose right-to-die case was heard by the High Court, referred to as "Martin", 47, has responded to losing his challenge to the legal ban on assisted dying:
I feel even more angry and frustrated now having had this court tell me that I cannot receive professional help to take control of how I might end my own life. My life following my stroke is undignified, distressing and intolerable. I wish to be able to exercise the freedom which everyone else would have - to decide how to end this constant tortuous situation.
The Courts have left it up to Parliament -so what next for the right to die issue?
Tony Nicklinson, who was left paralysed by a catastrophic stroke, has lost his High Court battle to have a doctor end his life.
