  • BioEdge: How should the media cover euthanasia?
    scene in which she displays the scars on her arms from self mutilation In another three doctors explain to her exactly how she will die and another in which a psychiatrist explains magisterially why euthanasia may be suitable for her The Economist s journalist and cameraman must have spent days with Emily staging scenes with her doctors her mother and her friends They are hardly detached observers instead they become supporters of her choice Their documentary transforms a painful mental illness into the voyeurism of reality TV Euthanasia is often described as the most intimate and personal choice a person will ever make But on YouTube a fragile suffering woman has become a tool for The Economst s international public relations campaign One hopes that The Economist has heeded the last item in WHO s advice to journalists Recognize that media professionals themselves may be affected by stories about suicide In the end the very end the moment in which the doctor arrives to give her a lethal injection Emily stepped back and said that she did not want to die Perhaps the extra attention given her by the journalists made her feel loved and comforted Perhaps as supporters of euthanasia argue knowing that death was readily available gave her courage to soldier on Was The Economist relieved or disappointed It s hard to say The world s most admired news magazine is campaigning strongly for the introduction of legalised doctor assisted dying around the world not just in the UK and not just for terminal conditions but for mental illness as well In addition to 24 and Ready to Die it has also created a brief video advertisement which aired in London and Berlin Could you live a life like this For Zanny Minton Beddoes the new editor in
