Australia's Dr. Death, Philip Nitschke, plans North American suicide tours of Unitarian Churches

Philip Nitschke, Australia's Dr. Death is coming to a Unitarian Church near you as he travels across North America on his suicide tour.

We alerting our supporters of how the euthanasia lobby is challenging the protections that exist for vulnerable people.

Nitschke promotes the online purchase of Nembutal, a veterinary euthanasia drug, and he is not concerned that an Australian study proved that depressed and mentally ill people are obtaining Nembutal via Nitschke's instructions.

I believe in freedom of speech, but I also agree that vulnerable people need to be protected from cavalier people like Nitschke who are willing to encourage and counsel suicide.

What can we do? Can we prevent him from getting into the country?
