Imagine being bound... Unable to move anything but your eyelids.It's been the reality for a man in England, who suffered a catastrophic stroke seven years ago.  He says his only relief for his condition, locked-in syndrome, will come from dying and he's been fighting for the right to end his life. It's a case drawing international attention and opinions Nima El-Bagir reports.

    This man should be allowed to die if that is really what he wants. We are more humane to our animals then we are
    to human beings. We need to rethink our position on these type of issues. This is such a personal matter to this
    one man that the Government should stand aside and let this man die with dignity. His choice is between him and
    his God. No one else should interfere. How sad for this man and his family. Please let him end his and their suffering.
    God will understand. I am quite sure of that.

    Judith: Not much more to say. It seems like way to many times OTHERS have to get into YOUR life. THEY do not have any true interest in your situation. THEY only want to push their beleifs and agenda by using your problems to have a stage to present WHY THEY are the only ones that have the only answer!
