'Dr Death' Sells Suicide Kits Disguised as Equipment for Making Beer


(Daily Mail) - A euthanasia campaigner nicknamed Dr Death is selling suicide kits disguised as equipment for home-brewing beer.

Dr Philip Nitschke, who calls for the legalisation of assisted suicide, sells the £257 kit on his brewing company’s website. It can be used for brewing beer but Dr Nitschke has written a guidebook, also available online, that explains how people can use it to take their own lives.

Last night, anti-assisted suicide group Care Not Killing described the sale of the kits as ‘utterly deplorable’, and spokesman Alistair Thompson called for the police to investigate Dr Nitschke. CONTINUE
