Healthy retired British nurse dies by assisted suicide in Switzerland

Published on

The Switzerland suicide juggernaut rolls on, now claiming the life of a healthy retired nurse from the UK.

Gill Pharoah, who was a supporter of euthanasia told the media that she went to the Swiss suicide clinic to avoid old age. The Care Not Killing Alliance called the suicide death:

Deeply troubling.

It sends out a chilling message about how society values and looks after elderly people in the UK.

It seeks the introduction of death on demand for those who fear becoming a burden, even if they are otherwise fit and healthy. This is an abhorrent development, but it reveals a truth that some who argue for a change in the law really believe there should be no safeguards or restrictions on assisted killing.

Previous Britons to die at a Swiss suicide clinic include the double assisted suicide of elderly cousins who feared living alone and an 83-year-old man with dementia, These cases are often connected to the suicide lobby leader who is lobbying for the acceptance of assisted suicide for people who are not terminally ill.

Last year, a healthy Italian woman died at a Swiss suicide clinic because she was unhappy about how she looked while in April 2013, an Italian man died at a Swiss suicide clinic after receiving a wrong diagnosis.

Cases, such as this one, appear to be promoted by the media to pressure the British government to legalize assisted suicide.

This latest case should cause more British politicians to vote against the assisted suicide bill that will soon be debated in the House of Commons. The disability rights group, Not Dead Yet – UK recently held a rally opposing the Marris assisted suicide bill.
