Li Yan asks for Euthanasia law in China (21 images)
28-year-old Li Yan suffers from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, the same illness that theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking has. The disease makes her loose control of her body. When the time comes, she wants to be able to choose to die, and she wants her mother to do it. Li Yan asked China's National People's Congress to authorize euthanasia in China. The Congress did not respond.
