01) Fears of a lonely death if euthanasia isn’t legalised

“Bobbie Carroll isn’t scared of death itself. She is more frightened of how she’s going to die.

The 64-year-old has been close to it before when she spent five days on life support after contracting an infection from a stem cell transplant.

“This is probably close to what my death without euthanasia will look like. It is horrific. I never want to go there, I came out traumatised,” she says.

“You’re only allowed two visitors a time. I couldn’t talk, I had tubes. I’m not going to go there, either legally or illegally. There’s no dignity, absolutely no dignity. It’s horrific.”


She says if it doesn’t happen, people will arrange it illegally.

“The problem there is you must die alone because anyone with you can and will be implicated. And [face] possible criminal charges. So you have to die alone. It’s not okay. I don’t want to die alone.”
