Final Exit to put up roadside assisted-suicide billboards
Organisation advertises right to die
A US group, the Final Exit Network (FEN),
plans to put up billboards with the slogan “My Life, My Death, My Choice”, to
spread their message that people have the “right to die”. According to the FEN website,
the non-profit organisation does not seek to change existing legislation but
rather to offer support to mentally competent patients who seek to end their
lives “when they when they suffer from a fatal or irreversible illness or
intractable pain, when their quality of life is personally unacceptable, and
the future holds only hopelessness and misery”. ~ Time, June 16
