Abstract

The case of Hannah Jones hit the national news in the UK with headlines proclaiming that a young girl had been allowed to make an end of life decision. The case raises the question of whether someone of Hannah's age should be allowed to make decisions about end of life treatment. However, as this article demonstrates, this case involves nothing more than the consent process in action, and that Hannah merely exercised her legal rights on consent and treatment.
