People hold placards reading ‘I show support to Vincent’ and a picture of Vincent Lambert, a quadriplegic man who is currently on artificial life support in a hospital in Reims, during a hearing regarding Lambert’s case at the European Court of Human Rights in the eastern French city of the Strasbourg on June 5, 2015. Europe’s rights court upheld the decision of a French court to allow a man in a vegetative state to be taken off life support, in a ruling that could become a benchmark on the continent. For over a year the fate of Vincent Lambert, who was left severely brain damaged and quadriplegic as a result of a 2008 road accident, has torn apart his family in a judicial tug-of-war over his right to die.
