In the Kanpur district of Uttar Pradesh, a mother-daughter duo is suffering from an unusual disease due to which they are unable to move even a step from their seat. In order to get rid of this disable life, they both has demanded Euthanasia from the state government. Euthanasia is a mercy killing of a patient suffering from an incurable and painful disease or in an irreversible coma, in other words, it is an assisted suicide.
22 years old Anamika lives with her mother Sashi Mishra in Shankracharya area of Yashoda Nagar, Kanpur. She says she and her mother being diagnosed with a rare disease called muscular dystrophy, a hereditary condition marked by progressive weakening and wasting of the muscles. They came to know about this in the year 1995 when for the first time her mother faced difficulty in walking and working.
Doctors say this rare disease is irremediable in India. Only physiotherapy is a temporary solution to get relief for some time. After some time in 2006, Anamika also got diagnosed with this rare disease as already mentioned it is genetic. In 2002 Anamika’s father died due to a heart attack. Their financial condition got shattered after the demise of her father. Currently, they have no one who can take care of them. They even need a person who can hold them and take to the washroom. In such situation, their neighbors help them. They use to sit on the wheelchair all the day long.
Anamika said, she wrote a letter for help to Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the year 2014. She asked for electronic band and wheelchair so that they don’t need to depend on others. After that in her letter she wrote, in case the government is not able to fulfill their demands then they can permit us Euthanasia i.e mercy killing.
However, they didn’t get notify and got no any reply from the government end. After one and a half year, she got a call saying, the government will help you. CM Akhilesh Yadav issued a cheque of Rs 50,000 to diseased mother and daughter in the year 2016. But is that a sufficient amount? No, absolutely not! That’s why this duo has demanded Euthanasia. Now see what government will do!
