School Children Targeted by Pro-Euthanasia Video

Country: United Kingdom

Date of incident: May 16, 2011

14-year-old UK students enrolled in GCSE (general certificate of secondary education) philosophy courses are being taught about euthanasia by viewing a video featuring Dr Philip Nitschke, a notorious assisted suicide campaigner and euthanasia fanatic. Nitschke, the Australian founder and director of the euthanasia group “Exit International”, known internationally as “Dr Death”, presents in a video a machine which delivers lethal injections.

The film also features former doctor, Michael Irwin, who expresses his pleasure helping people kill themselves at the infamous Swiss Dignitas suicide clinic. This is a violation of the right of parents to decide on the education of their children, particularly Christian parents, especially when it comes to ethical questions of life and death. Those who do not wish their children to see pro-Euthanasia campaigning materials have no proportionate means to react.  Sources:
