Tang Siu-pun, the 34-year-old quadriplegic better known as Ah Pun, said nobody should have the right to decide whether someone else should live or die. Ah Pun sparked a debate over euthanasia in April last year after he sent e-mails to legislators and former chief executive Tung Chee-hwa, asking for the law to be changed to give him the right to die. He made his latest remarks after a 50-year-old man was charged with the murder of his 83-year-old mother, who suffered from lung disease and other illnesses. Both plunged into the sea off the Kowloon City waterfront on Wednesday. The woman, who was in a wheelchair, had lost consciousness by the time police on board a motorised sampan pulled them out of the water. Ah Pun said people who have thoughts about death should think about their loved ones and seek help. 'If they can think of just one person they love, then they should not die. It is also wrong for those who want to die to impose what they think on others [who might want to stay alive]. No one has the right to decide another person's fate.' He said most people focused too much on death when they talked about euthanasia. 'I thought of seeking death after I had spent my life in bed for 13 years. I did not come up with the idea overnight. I think I should have the right to decide my own fate. 'But thoughts of dying or euthanasia only hang around my head for a short time. I think I should consider the feelings of people around me. 'I never thought of dying before my father. I think more discussions should be held on the issue and more people should talk about euthanasia.' Ah Pun said he was now too busy with his new life to think about death. 'I am very busy every day. I have to do breathing exercises and other kinds of exercises to strengthen my body functions. I also have to surf online to read newspapers and e-books.' Ah Pun sometimes also takes a wheelchair ride around the car park at the Queen Mary Hospital, where he had been bedridden for 13 years. 'I tried to write a letter to the chief executive asking for legal changes to make way for euthanasia, but my wish was not granted. I will not waste time to think about it now that I have a totally new life,' he said. 'I did not know what I had to do every day a year ago, and now I know what I have to do every day. My time is packed with many things and activities which just totally consume my thoughts.'
