Right to Life has written to the Hon Michael Woodhouse, Minister of Immigration, to issue an order prohibiting Philip Nitschke, known as “Dr Death” from entering New Zealand. He is the voice of the euthanasia movement in New Zealand and is a threat to the lives of vulnerable people. He has been conducting suicide seminars and encouraging vulnerable people to illegally smuggle the prohibited class C lethal drug Nembutal, into New Zealand.
Right to Life believes that Philip Nitschke (pictured) is in breach of the Immigration Act 2009, section 16, Certain Other Persons not eligible for visa or entry permission  [IV]. Likely to be threat to the public interest. It would be in the interest of our community for the Minister to exercise his statutory authority and prohibit the future entry of Phillip Nitschke into New Zealand.
Philip Nitschke is an Australian citizen who is currently residing in Amsterdam, Holland. He is the founder and Director of Exit International. He was previously a registered medical practitioner but cancelled his registration in November 2015. It is a tragedy that this gifted doctor should violate the ethics of his profession and use his medical skills to encourage suicide. He is a regular visitor to New Zealand and has engaged in conducting suicide seminars in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Nelson. He has conducted tours to Mexico for the purpose of purchasing illegal drugs to be smuggled across the border into New Zealand. [Read more…]
