MPs have rejected a bill which would have allowed doctors to help some terminally ill people end their lives.
A total of 330 MPs voted against the Assisted Dying Bill, with 118 in favour of it, a majority of 212.
MPs threw out Labour MP Rob Marris' Private Members' Bill following a lengthy and an at times emotional debate in the House of Commons.
One MP was reduced to tears as she recounted her husband's suffering during the last years of his life, as the Commons continued to debate a bill on assisted dying.
Madeleine Moon's husband Steve died earlier this year after contracting a form of Motor Neurone Disease.
In an emotional speech, the Bridgend MP told how life "changed to being a burden".
She said the bill would not have helped him but that it should be allowed to go on to the committee stage.
"I believe that it is Parliament's job to look at the will of the people and to consider the difficult choices in front of society," she said. "We must be honest with the people and have that full and frank debate."
Campaigners from both sides of the assisted dying debate held placards and voiced their views ahead of the Commons discussion.
MPs have started debating whether terminally ill people in England and Wales should be allowed to end their lives under medical supervision.
The landmark debate - the first in 20 years - is taking place after Labour MP Rob Marris put forward a Private Members' Bill.
MPs will debate the right to die for the first time in almost 20 years later.Read the full story ›

Two young children are being treated for suspected E.coli in north Wales.
Public Health Wales and Conwy County Borough Council are investigating the suspected cases in the children who both attend childcare settings in Conwy.
The affected childcare providers have closed voluntarily and relevant children and staff are being screened for the infection as a precaution to prevent it spreading.
The source of the infection is believed to be outside of the childcare settings. Both children are recovering well at home. says Public Health Wales.
E.coli O157 is a very serious infection that causes very severe diarrhoea, sometimes with blood in it, abdominal cramps and fever.
In children, it can cause kidney failure that can prove fatal. It is not uncommon for outbreaks to be associated with children having contact with farm animals. The infection can also be contracted by eating contaminated food or drinking unpasteurised milk.
Anyone who has concerns about their health should contact their GP or NHS Direct Wales on 0845 46 47.
A scheme which helps people on sick leave get back to work is being extended to allow employers to refer their own staff.Read the full story ›
The number of women diagnosed with breast cancer in Wales has risen almost a fifth in a decade but with no extra investment in nursing, a charity has said.
Breast Cancer Care said the lack of specialist nurses was impacting on patient care.
The increasingly ageing population plus rising obesity and higher levels of alcohol intake are said to be fuelling the rise in cases.
Breast Cancer Care said specialist nurses are vital for giving patients support from diagnosis to recovery.
Breast cancer nurses do a fantastic job but they are under more and more pressure to provide the same quality of care with much less time, more responsibilities and many more patients.
We welcome the Cancer Strategy recommendation that every cancer patient should have access to a specialist nurse, but the next step is how we make that a reality.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women and is also the fastest rising cancer in women after lung cancer.
The number of people living with breast cancer is set to more than double from 691,000 at present to 1.7 million by 2040.
Although 78% of women with breast cancer live for 10 years or more after diagnosis, there are still almost 12,000 deaths a year from the disease.
