A view shows the courtroom of the European Court of Human Rights ahead of the start of an hearing concerning the case of Vincent Lambert in Strasbourg, January 7, 2015. Vincent Lambert, 38, a tetraplegic since a road traffic accident in 2008, is being maintained alive, receiving nutrition and hydration and is in a state of total medical dependence. The public hearing in Europe’s top court in Strasbourg in this right-to-die case will have testimony from his wife, in conflict with his parents who want him to be kept alive.
