Helping the terminally ill

Baroness Ilora Finlay is a heroine of mine.

She is a professor of palliative medicine. She promotes palliative care, opposes euthanasia and assisted suicide and argues eloquently against their legalisation.

What some people didn't know as she argued against an assisted suicide bill some years ago was that her 84-year-old mother was lying in a hospice with advanced cancer, wanting to die.
