Non-violent end

From Sir Ludovic Kennedy Sir: In your preview (1 February) of the Dutch television film Death on Request, it was misleading of you to say that it shows Dr van Coyjen "killing a patient". It shows the doctor preparing the syringe, but purposely it does not show him administering it. In any case, do you think "killing" which most of us associate with violence, is the right word for an act which is taking place at the patient's specific request?

Yours etc, LUDOVIC KENNEDY London, W11
