Media Release December 17th 2016
Right to Life challenges Philip Nitschke’s declaration that “suicide is a fundamental human right-one that society has no moral right to interfere with” He has revealed that he plans to set up in New Zealand, ExitAction, a criminal group that will openly flout the law by smuggling the lethal illegal Class three Nembutal drug, for anybody who wants to commit suicide.
The sinister and ugly face of Euthanasia is now exposed. It comes dressed as an angel of mercy and compassion, bringing relief to the dying and disabled. Thanks to Philip Nitschke it is now exposed as a predatory angel of death that seeks not only the vulnerable but in fact every member of our community.
“Exit Action is critical of the “medical model” that sees voluntary euthanasia as a privilege given to the very sick by the medical profession,” the organisation said.
“The standard approach for years has been to get the very sick to tell their stories of suffering to the public and politicians, in the hope that politicians might take pity and change the law.”
Right to Life urges the community to understand that it is the strategic plan of the international movement to promote doctor assisted suicide for a clearly defined minority as the first small step, with the ultimate objective of providing assisted suicide to an ever enlarging group as in Holland, where they have within fifteen years gone from doctor assisted suicide for the terminally ill, to expanding the killing to now include the depressed, those with Alzheimer’s, children, and an estimated 650 babies each year. It was recently expanded to include a young alcoholic.
Right to Life believes that the Police should treat ExitAction as a criminal gang. Right to Life will take advice on lodging a complaint with the Police against Philip Nitschke for proposing to run an illegal drug organisation and encouraging people to commit suicide.
The Dutch government made up of Greens, Labour and liberals recently advised Parliament that the euthanasia law will be amended next year to allow the government to provide a lethal pill to the elderly who believe that they are “done with life,” but not suffering from a serious or terminal medical condition. This proposal has the support of 60 per cent of the community; it also has the support of the Dutch Euthanasia Society. How many years will it take for this right of the elderly to kill themselves, to become a duty?
Philip Nitschke is an internationally respected leader in the euthanasia movement, not a radical but disarmingly honest.
Right to Life challenges the Green Party, the only political party that has the dubious distinction of supporting euthanasia, the Voluntary Euthanasia Society New Zealand and David Seymour MP, sponsor of “end of Life Choice Bill” to inform the public if they support Philip Nitschke’s proposal to recognise assisted suicide as a human right for every person, for any reason at every age?
