With all the suicide cases related to the Final Exit Network in Australia, the Gladd Asphyxiation mail order (Exit Hoods) and the connection of Derek Humphry who is promoting these assisted suicide groups, it is important view the documentary by UK documentary producer Jon Ronson titled: Reverend Death that is about the suicide activist and assisted suicide promoter, Rev. George Exoo.
In 2010, George Exoo made plans to open a suicide clinic in Gastonia North Carolina, that was designed to be similar to the Dignitas suicide Clinic in Switzerland. Link to article.
The documentary, Reverend Death was shown on BBC. It can be found on U-Tube in 9 parts. It is a sad story but worth watching.

When watching Reverend Death, you will notice how the father of the assisted suicide lobby, Derek Humphry, refers people, for suicide assistance, to Exoo when they are not mentally stable. You will also notice at the NuTech meeting when Exoo announces that he was going to commit suicide that the participants, particularly Russel Ogden, the founder of the Farewell Foundation, are more concerned about the method rather than whether or not he should die. Finally you will hear how Exoo appears to have a sexual reaction when he is involved with assisting the suicide deaths of others.
It is important to understand that the concepts of choice and autonomy are really how the assisted suicide lobby sells assisted suicide to the public. The assisted suicide lobby is about a group of people who have become part of a death cult who view themselves as freeing the world of pain and suffering but in reality are working to remove the protections that exist in law for vulnerable people.
