Euthanasia Advocate Nitschke Teaching Suicide-Pill-making classes

ADELAIDE, November 30, 2004 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Australian euthanasia campaigner, Philip Nitschke, has invented another scheme to help suicidal people kill themselves: he plans to teach a class of “students” how to manufacture their own suicide pills. He is recruiting participants for his workshop, planned for April.  Nitschke claims to have 12 people already interested, and hopes for 30. Each participant will come away with a lethal 10g dose of a barbiturate-based poison. Interested individuals must have already completed one of Nitschke’s earlier workshops, which discussed legal aspects of assisted suicide. Nitschke plans to host more classes later in 2005.  “Many […]

A lesbian “couple” sued to have the common-law definition of marriage changed from being a “union between a man and a woman” to a “union between two persons.” A spokesman for the organization that staged the effort said […]
