Euthanasia I (letter)


by Jay Nauss

News Weekly, July 11, 2009

Sir,

Tim Cannon's article on Dr Philip Nitschke, "Dr Death's travelling road show" (News Weekly, June 13, 2009), was most informative. It is necessary to keep the activities of Dr Nitschke in the public eye and to expose his attempts to bring the culture of death to the less fortunate.

It has perplexed me for some time why anyone would want to make a career out of teaching people how to commit suicide. I would have thought that anyone wanting to exit this life wouldn't need any instruction on how to do it, as there are over 2,000 people annually, who unfortunately, take their own lives.

However, the Dr Deaths of this world want to have the approval of governments and legislation to justify what they are doing.

We have to conclude that these people must have a pathological desire to assist in the deaths of others and they must be bereft of any belief in a higher power.

Jay Nauss,
Glen Aplin, Qld
