Pretoria – The  High Court has on Thursday granted the right to assisted suicide to a terminally ill patient. This is the first ruling in favour of assisted suicide of a terminally ill patient in South Africa. Robin Stransham-Ford (65) was allowed die with the help of a medical practitioner without any legal implications for the doctor. Judge Hans Fabricius ruled that Mr. Stransham-Ford could “end his life” by administering a lethal injection to end his pain.  “I wish to end my life with dignity, surrounded by my loved ones, while I am able to breathe on my own, speak to my loved ones and see and hear them”  he said. Stransham-Ford died a peaceful death after the legal injection was delivered.
