Nancy's mother said: "I will live with the guilt forever"
The mother has spoken of her relief after winning a legal battle to allow her disabled daughter to be dehydrated to death.
Charlotte Fitzmaurice said: "Although I will live with the guilt forever, I know I have done everything I can for her and she is at peace." Nancy, her daughter, was not terminally-ill and was able to breathe unaided.
Dr Andrew Ferguson, chairman of Care Not Killing, said: "It is never ethical to speed up the process of dying by any intervention which has the primary intention to end life". [Express, 27 October]
