Reasons to thank Philip Nitschke
4 Apr 2011 | CAREFUL! |
I never thought I’d be giving a bouquet to ‘doctor death’. After all, there’s nothing that he has said or done in the public eye that I find the least bit agreeable (except, perhaps, the recent picture of his visit with his mother).
South Australian MP seeks abortion on demand
16 Mar 2011 | CAREFUL! |
On the 10th of March, backbencher Steph Key MP introduced a new style of euthanasia and assisted suicide bill not seen before in South Australia. It is much like the draft bill circulated by the Health Minister at the time of the debate on the Parnell bill late last year.
Philip Nitschke: suicide as an art form in Tasmania

13 Dec 2010 | CAREFUL! |
On the 26th of November, the Australian Advertising Standards Bureau (ASB) dismissed complaints against Exit International’s billboard advertising campaign that ran in Sydney.
