‘I want to rest in peace’: Ecuadorian woman demanding euthanasia

Quito (AFP) – “I want to rest in peace, calmly and peacefully,” says Paola Roldan, an Ecuadorian woman who has suffered from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) for three years and who is advocating euthanasia in her country. Roldan, 42, filed a lawsuit before court last August against an article of the Ecuadorian penal code that sentences homicide to 10 and 13 years in prison.
