Sky News interviews Zoë about her support for legalising assisted dying

17 March 2024 07:08

This is the powerful, thought-provoking interview Zoë, a longstanding patron of campaigning organisation Dignity in Dying, gave to Sky News on 7 March about legalising assisted dying in the UK.

The emotive subject is currently receiving widespread attention in the press due to MPs making fresh calls for a debate about it. A bill to make assisted dying legal in Scotland will be put before the Scottish parliament in the coming weeks.

Speaking to broadcaster Kay Burley, Zoë emphasised that ‘it’s nobody’s business but one’s own how one wants to live or die; and I think it’s about time we recognised this as something of choice – freedom of choice.’

She added that her dad, Sam Wanamaker, the founder of Shakespeare’s Globe, ‘was not allowed to’ choose when or how he passed away during his battle with terminal illness in the early 1990s.

When asked what message she had for UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, Zoë urged the government to make assisted dying legal.
