SYDNEY, May 28, 2002 ( – The late Nancy Crick’s campaign for euthanasia was based on her much-publicized excruciating pain from bowel cancer. On her website, Crick wrote about her terrible pain, nausea, diarrhea and weight loss.  Yet an autopsy revealed no signs of cancer at the time of her death. Crick, 69, killed herself on May 22 with a poison used by veterinarians to put down animals.  Australia’s leading euthanasia campaigner, Philip Nitschke, reportedly displayed no surprise, reports Pro-euthanasia spokesman John Edge called the autopsy details “academic.” He said euthanasia campaigners want legal euthanasia for the “hopelessly ill, not terminally ill.”  Police confirmed their investigation will now focus on interviews with the 21 witnesses who were present at the suicide in an effort to provoke authorities.  To read the Cybercast News ( account see:
