Euthanasia campaigner to set up secret factory for “peaceful pill”

Philip Nitschke, the doctor who is Australia’s best-known euthanasia activist, says that he has organised a workshop next March at a secret location where his sympathisers can make lethal potions to kill themselves. Dr Nitschke says that the workshop is urgent because new Federal legislation will provide stringent penalties for informing people about how to commit suicide. The executive director of the Pharmacy Guild of Australia, Steven Greenwood, described Dr Nitschke’s proposal as “sensationalist rubbish”.
