World-renowned cosmologist Stephen Hawking says people have the right to take their own lives.

Hawking was commenting on the case of a Canadian woman who, like him, suffers from the fatal Lou Gehrig's disease, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis."People should have the right to die if they want to. It is one of the few rights severely ill people have left," Hawking said, although he dismissed the option for himself.
