Terry Pratchett presented a BBC programme last night following a man suffering from motor neurone disease in his quest for assisted suicide.
Christine Jackson, who suffers from terminal cancer, said she thought the programme was important in making sure the issues involved are being debated publicly.
"I would like to control how and when and particularly where I die," she said. "It saddens me that people have to go to such lengths to have a peaceful death."
But the Right Reverend Michael Nazir-Ali said it was a bias contribution to the debate which glorified suicide.
"It wasn't a peaceful death, it was a terrible death," he said.
Charlie Russell, the director of Terry Pratchett: Choosing To Die,
blogs about the programme.
