Seized by a part of the family of M. Lambert, opposed to the process of passive euthanasia, the judges felt that discontinuation of treatment “characterizes a serious and manifestly illegal infringement of the right to life.
This decision has shocked the medical team and the wife of Vincent Lambert. “I feel sadness and am devastated by failure to comply with the wishes of Vincent,” she says in the world. “Judges donned a white blouse and made Act of interference in the medical competence in deciding on the merits,” laments Dr. Eric Kariger, which could appeal to the Council of State.
Case Lambert relaunches the debate: to the Minister of health, Marisol Touraine, the current law, known as Leonetti, this ‘ambiguities to throw. François Hollande, who wants a revision of the Act for the end of the year, wants to avoid a new division of the French company as the debate on gay marriage.
