'Secret dignified deaths are carried out all over the country by medics'
Gail O'Rorke is the only person to stand trial for assisted suicide but she believes she is not alone, writes Kevin Doyle
As she waited for the book to be thrown at her, Gail O'Rorke studied the faces of the 12 jurors who would decide her fate.
The 45-year-old was "afraid" of the younger members who "may not have witnessed a parent or a loved one going through that the kind of death".
But then again the older jurors were more likely to have religious beliefs that would see her judged not only in the eyes of the court but also by God.
