In a powerful interview on TVNZ Sunday, Claire Freeman describes the car accident that left her paralysed as a teenager and how, after multiple suicide attempts, she received medical advice to pursue assisted suicide overseas.
Had assisted suicide been available in NZ, Claire says it’s likely she would have taken her life. Claire has now turned her life around and she’s determined to save the lives of other vulnerable people.
