More "Heroes" Of Assisted Suicide Hit The UK Media

If you ever wanted a prime example of pro-death media spin, read this. Note how it’s not helping kill someone that’s the problem, it’s all the bad Brit rules that meant this guy couldn’t help his partner die in the UK. Oh, and by the way, the grieving partner blames his drinking, depression, etc., on the Brit laws. What about accompanying his partner to be killed when he might have had more time alive? If I sound unsympathetic, it’s because all these “brave” people keep coming out of the woodwork portraying themselves as either saints or victims, or most irritating of all, as heroes for the cause.

"It has been hell," he said, speaking exclusively to The Independent on Sunday, only hours after hearing the decision.
It lifts a cloud of uncertainty that has hovered over Mr Cutkelvin Rees, 57, since he travelled to the Swiss euthanasia clinic Dignitas with his terminally ill civil partner, Raymond Cutkelvin, in February 2007. more
