A British court rejected appeals for the right to die by a paralysed road accident victim and the family of a deceased locked-in syndrome sufferer on Wednesday, saying only parliament should decide on matters of life and death.
The Court of Appeal said the law on assisted suicide could not be changed by the courts, quashing the appeal by paralysed man Paul Lamb and the family of Tony Nicklinson, who suffered locked-in syndrome, where someone is aware and awake but cannot move or communicate.
He refused food and medication after he lost his bid to end his life with a doctor's help last year, and died a week later.
"The short answer must be, and always has been, that the law relating to assisting suicide cannot be changed by judicial decision," Igor Judge, Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales, said in the ruling, which is sure to spark more debate over a person's right to choose when and how to end his or her life.
Another paralysed man, known only as Martin, won a separate case on Wednesday seeking clarification of prosecution guidance for health workers who help others to die.
In Britain, anyone who helps another person to kill themselves commits the offence of assisted suicide, while a person who carries out euthanasia commits the offence of murder.
Switzerland and the U.S. states of Oregon, Washington and Montana are among the few places where some forms of euthanasia or assisted suicide are legal under certain circumstances.
Lamb, who has been paralysed since a car accident almost 25 years ago, said he was "gutted" by Wednesday's ruling. He is immobile except for limited movement in his right hand, requires 24-hour care and is constantly on morphine to relieve pain.
"I was hoping for a humane and dignified end. This judgment does not give me that," he said in a statement.
The case was an appeal against the Nicklinson decision, whose case was dismissed in August last year.
Nicklinson's wife, Jane, told BBC television: "I saw the way that Tony suffered and I would hate to think of anyone else suffering the way he did."
But expert and public opinion is divided over whether people should have the right to be helped to die.
British disability charity Scope opposes giving the right to people with disabilities to kill themselves.
Talking about the hearing earlier this year, the charity's chief executive, Richard Hawkes, wrote: "These cases are unbearably tragic, but they cannot be the basis for changing a law that could affect millions."

"Black In Latin America". The great Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr. not only host this phenomenal documentary mini series, but is also the creator of this groundbreaking series. The series which broadcasts on PBS, has made huge educational strides in educating everyone about Black people in other areas of the world other than in America (although there is absolutely nothing wrong in doing that), and has made great strides in unveiling the corrosive nature of the intolerant in power molding society to where so much effort was put into trying to erase Black culture from their country. Sadly, Black people from all around the world know all too well of how their beauty has a vital history of others trying to erase it, or cover it up, or re-do it by using another ethnicity to bring forth what has already been done by them.
Who is Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. exactly? Well, it is difficult to reveal all of who he is professionally because he is a lot, but this is just a start into his professional and personal triumphs. Born in 1950 on September 16, this renowned man is widely known for his distinguished intellectual achievements in the humanities. A native of Keyser, West Virginia he is an American literary critic, scholar, writer, editor, but also a respected Professor.
He was the first African American to be honored and receive the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Fellowship, and countless honorary degrees and awards for his research, development of academic institutions to study Black culture, and for his teaching. For another blessing on his belt, in 2002 Professor Gates was highly sought after to give the Jefferson Lecture, in recognition of his distinguished intellectual achievements in the humanities.
Not only does Gates host the series, but he is responsible for bringing the mini-series "Black In Latin America" to the world, and he also serves as the Alphonse Fletcher University Professor at the top-notch Harvard University, where he is the Director of the W.E.B. Du Bois Institute for African and African American Research. What else should you know, the man is a star, and sits on the boards of many notable cultural, arts, and research institutions.
"Black In Latin America" mini-series on PBS given to you by the respected Professor Gates, uncovers Black life in Mexico and Peru, in the documentary called "Mexico and Peru: The Black Grandma in the Closet". Black America you know all too well what this means and what it is, and you have quite the experience of it by witnessing first-hand this obsession by others to cover-up and bury African culture (in America) by those in power who want to erase Africa altogether. It does not have to end with those in power, but the sickness of trying to erase away the beauty of Africa, its people, its history, its traditions, and its culture belongs to the everyday people too- those who not only believe the lies and mis-perceptions, but help to make the cover-up possible.
Good thing Black people know and realize the truth and keep the fight alive to maintain that the given information are lies, and never quit preaching the facts. This is one group whom never quits informing their own kind, empowering their own kind, and continues to continue the fight that was started by their people from generations ago- and unfortunately this will be a long fight but this is one group that derives from strength so if it is not within our lifetime the fight will be won there after.
This sort of convoluted, coiled, and deep issue does not just go away but instead it takes a long time for it to unravel piece by piece. Remember when I said it is a "good thing Black people know and realize the truth…."? Well quite frankly there are those (fortunately not too many) Black people who do not love themselves enough to be able to love their own history, culture, people, and native land. You know the type- the person who would say something that you expected a White person to say about Black people or Africa. (That last comment is actually Black rhetoric, and an old saying) Remember, you remember the one family who decided to live in an all White or nearly all White community, and their children did not receive the Black experience but they sure did receive that racist or isolated one and they have never been the same ever since. (And of course this does not pertain to all Blacks who lived that experience, but was just enough to receive attention from the Black community) Well, those people are the weak links, those who are damaged and do not know or realize their worth so they continue on as the butt of the joke by the Black community. Not only their rhetoric is the joke, but the mentality behind their rhetoric is the punch line by many Black people.
This particular ethnic group knows nothing but to push on, push through, and be all that signifies strength because they derive from strong ancestry. What does that mean to the Black community really? Well, to them it means that because they derive from an ancestry line that survived some of the most evil hardships throughout history they believe it to be factual that they are the strongest ethnic group. You may have asked yourself why that information was stated because there are other ethnic groups that have endured hardships right? It was chosen to state it that way for a reason; many within the Black community will not even stand to hear that Jewish people had it hard, because to many within the Black community nothing can compare to what their ancestors lived through. It is actually an insult to the Black community to give credit to another group for experiencing harder times than their own group, because to them no horrid experience can ever beat over 200 years of slavery (how many times have you heard them say that line).
The PBS mini series "Black In Latin America" gives an in depth look into the African Diaspora- and the series showing what life is like for Black people in Latin America actually empowers every person more than we know.

LONDON (Reuters) - On any given day, some 80,000 patients in Europe are fighting an infection they picked up in hospital, often while in intensive care, the EU's disease monitoring agency said in a survey published on Thursday.
Although some of these infections can be treated easily, others - like the superbug MRSA and other drug-resistant bugs - can be fatal or affect patients' health very seriously, taking several months of costly hospital care and medication to beat.
A survey by the European Centre for Diseases Prevention and Control (ECDC) found that on any given day, one in 18 patients in European hospitals has at least one hospital-acquired infection - amounting to around 3.2 million patients per year.
"Healthcare-associated infections pose a major public health problem and a threat to European patients," said Marc Sprenger, director of the Stockholm-based ECDC.
He said many of these infections could be prevented by well thought-out, sustained and multi-pronged prevention and control programmes and he urged hospitals to step up the fight.
"Such programmes, as well as prudent use of antibiotics, will help all actors involved to protect the patients of European hospitals," he said in a statement.
The ECDC warned last year that doctors are increasingly having to turn to last-ditch antibiotics due to growing drug-resistant superbug infections in Europe - many of them acquired in hospitals.
The latest survey, which covered 1,000 hospitals in 30 European countries, found the highest rates of hospital-acquired infections were among patients admitted to intensive care units, where 19.5 percent of patients had at least one bug they had picked up from the hospital.
The most common types of infection are respiratory tract infections such as pneumonia and infections of the bloodstream. These are often caused by Klebsiella pneumoniae and E. coli bacteria, both of which have shown an ability to develop resistance to some of the most powerful antibiotics.
Among a total 15,000 reported healthcare-associated infections, surgical site infections and urinary tract infections are also common. Many of the infections are also found to be drug-resistant "superbugs", the survey showed.
Among all infections with Staphylococcus aureus bacteria in which full testing was carried out, more than 40 percent were reported as resistant to methicillin - in other words they were MRSA infections, the ECDC said.
Worldwide, MRSA infects an estimated 53 million people annually and costs more than $20 billion a year to treat. It kills around 20,000 people a year in the United States and a similar number in Europe.
EU health and consumer affairs commissioner Paola Testori Coggi said the findings of the European survey were "worrying" and urged health authorities to do more to protect patients in hospital and to step up the fight against antibiotic resistance.
Drug resistance is driven by the misuse and overuse of antibiotics, which encourages bacteria to develop new ways of overcoming them.
Experts say hospitals are often guilty of overusing antibiotics, giving them as "blanket" treatments before full testing has established which drugs are really needed.
