Vincent Lambert is alive. He is awake. But against his family’s wishes, French officials want to end his life.
Vincent, 42, sustained severe brain injuries in a car accident and has remained on life support in France.
Vincent Lambert is not brain dead. He breathes on his own. He turns his head and follows people with his eyes. He sleeps at night and is awake in the day.
Although fully capable of swallowing, Vincent receives his nutrition through a gastric tube.
Despite clear signs of life, and the appeals of his heartbroken mother, the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) ruled in favor of removing his tube, essentially starving him to death.
Our ECLJ office in France initiated an appeal to the U.N. Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities which agreed that disabled individuals must not be starved to death. A French appeal court ruled that the French government must comply with the U.N. and keep Vincent alive while a committee reviews the case.
We will continue fighting at the United Nations, the ECHR, and the French government to protect Vincent’s life. Take action with us.
