Coronation Street assisted suicide story

Coronation Street assisted suicide story

The BBC has reported this week that the ITV Soap ‘Coronation Street’ is to run a story on assisted suicide centred on the character Hayley Cropper (pictured).  Hayley, the first transgender character in a British soap, has been diagnosed with inoperable pancreatic cancer and the show has revealed that as her health deteriorates she will decide she wants to take her own life.  Cancer of the pancreas is not uncommon: 7,065 people in England and Wales died from the disease in 2010.  However, the overwhelming majority of those with pancreatic cancer, or in fact any other physical disease or disability for that matter, do not want assisted suicide or euthanasia but rather good care and support.
