European Court of Human Rights, Strasbourg

Mrs Viviane Lambert is rightly devastated that her son is to be dehydrated to death following a recent ruling by the European Court of Human Rights, which is based in Strasbourg.

John Deighan Chief Executive Officer of SPUC Scotland commented:

“The judges we expect to protect our rights have effectively sentenced an innocent man to death.”

“It is of course profoundly sad that illness and disability can bring about situations which almost totally restrict the capacities of a person. However it is by virtue of being human that we have human rights. They cannot be reduced to measurements of particular capacities or characteristics.”

“Vincent Lambert is a human person who can breathe unaided, he simply needs warmth and nutrition to continue to live.  His mother and other family members are eager to to ensure his care continues.”

“He is to be deprived of fluids with the intention that it will kill him.”

“Courts need to be logical and dispassionate in assessing rights. Yet the Strasbourg court has abandoned the clear principles of the European Convention on Human  that everyone’s life shall be protected by law.”

“We are seeing a culture of death gradually corroding our human rights protections after so much has been done and sacrificed to uphold the values of a civilised society.  This is a decision which abandons the most crucial principle of the right to life and portrays it as compassion.”
