Goodall says his quality of life is deteriorating.

He was forced to come to Switzerland for help in dying as assisted suicide is illegal in Australia. But he told the press he believes anyone over middle age should have the right to end their lives.

At the conference, the director of Exit International, which is the organization helping Goodall to end his life, says there’s a growing number of elderly people who are demanding end of life choices.

David Goodall is due to die later today in Basel.
