Re: Classification of The Peaceful Pill Handbook (New Revised International Version) by Dr Philip Nitschke and Fiona Stewart
Right to Life on 12 May 2008 sought leave to apply for a review of the classification of the controversial suicide handbook, The Peaceful Pill Handbook [New Revised International Edition] authored by Dr Philip Nitschke and Fiona Stewart. Leave was sought under section 47 [e] of the Films, Videos, and Publications Classification Act (1993). The Office of Film and Literature Classification Office produced a decision on the 18th of March on the original edition of the book deeming it objectionable and declared it banned for sale or distribution within New Zealand.
