Kusch [Dr. Death] has developed, and advertises, a “suicide machine” that he will hook up to clients for a charge of up to $13,000. One of his “clients” took her life simply because she felt she was too anti-social to live in a nursing home.
Perhaps Canada would never face someone pining for his right to make a profit off of assisted suicide like this Dr. Death character. As the above article goes on to say, “the U.S. is more likely than Europe to be a trendsetter for Canada.” Hmmm…
Oregon has a law that allows terminally ill people to end their lives “through the voluntary self-administration of lethal medications, expressly prescribed by a physician for that purpose.”
And we know that, where prescription medication is concerned, there is no profit to be made.
