  • BioEdge: Nitschke sets up Adelaide clinic for assisted suicide
    how to use the lethal sedative Nembutal how to obtain it and how to test its purity He also has canisters of nitrogen bearing the name of his company Mad Dog Brewing which can be used to organise death by asphyxiation The gas is conventionally used for making home brew but Dr Nitschke s clients are unconventional The motto of the company is dispense or dispose if you see what I mean he told the ABC Police in Queensland and New South Wales are questioning Dr Nitschke over occasions in which the canisters have been found next to corpses He also has a mobile consulting unit packed with equipment so that he can inform people who cannot visit the clinic of their options He stresses that the gear is used only for information Even if assisted suicide is legalised in South Australia Dr Nitschke does not intend to use the clinic as a thanatorium People prefer to die in their own homes he says The clinic is controversial in Adelaide Let s bell the cat right from the start Australia like much of the Western world has an ageing population says Paul Russell of Hope Australia We must recognise the prospect of euthanasia becoming law in this country could effectively be aiding and abetting elder abuse by relatives It s not hard to imagine a relative who has been systematically abusing an elder could see euthanasia as the final and most profitable card to play for personal gain It s not hard to imagine someone who has been emotionally abused over time succumbing to the suggestion they do the right thing once their frailty and ailments reach a certain point MORE ON THESE TOPICS assisted suicide Australia euthanasia Philip Nitschke This article is published by Michael Cook and BioEdge under
