Nitschke announces his North American tour dates.

Philip Nitschke
This is not an advertisement for Philip Nitschke's second tour of North America but rather a concern for everyone who knows about the work of Nitschke, Australia's Dr. Death, and understands how his suicide promotion has led to the death of many people who are depressed or mentally ill.

It is bad enough that Nitschke promotes suicide by selling his books, devices and information online to anyone and everyone.

Further to that, are not Nitschke's tactics even worse than those of William Melchert-Dinkel, the nurse in Minnesota who has being prosecuted for being an online suicide predator, for directly and intentionally counseling and abeting Nadia Kajouji to commit suicide in March 2008.

Did not the parliament of Canada debate Motion 388, that was introduced by Harold Albrecht MP, Kitchener - Connestoga, that asked the question whether Canada's assisted suicide act was broad enough to prosecute Melchert-Dinkel in Canada? Motion 388 unanimously passed in the House of Commons

Authorities in Canada and the United States need to challenge Nitschke. Why should he be allowed to come into Canada and the United States and hold meetings that encourage the participants to break the law? Further to that, if it is only medical advise, the last I noticed Nitschke is not a licensed physician in any jurisdiction in North America.

Oh by the way, Nitschke does have safeguards to assure that only people who need his advice can attend. The rule is that you must be 50 years old. Either this is age discrimination or he thinks that 50 is a good age to end it all.
