The Swiss suicide clinic Dignitas has helped a mentally ill British couple to die in its Zurich clinic. Robert Stokes, 59, and his wife Jennifer Anne, 53, drank pentobarbitone with the help of a “euthanasia assistant”, a Bedfordshire coroner found this week. Their son David said that his parents were mentally disturbed. “I know my parents were not terminally ill. The only terminal illness they had was inside their heads,” he told the press.
