Clueless German Press Thinks Assisted Suicide Is Euthanasia

OK, here’s why the press does such harm to our cause and aids and abets the pro-deathers: A story of a prominent German couple who went to Dignitas in Switzerland and were killed via assisted suicide NOT voluntary euthanasia. Voluntary euthanasia ia when someone requests euthanasia and is then killed, usually by a doctor. Assisted sucide is when someone helps another commit suicide. Assisted suicide is what this story’s about.
Report: German Flick industrialist died by voluntary euthanasia
Berlin - A former German industrialist who was at the centre of one of West Germany's biggest political scandals died alongside his wife through voluntary euthanasia in a Swiss clinic, media reports said Saturday.
The daughter of Eberhard von Brauchitsch was reported by the news magazine Focus as saying her father and mother Helga had decided to end their own lives.
"Due to the rapid deterioration of their health, my parents took this step into consideration - and then took the step at an appropriate time for them," daughter Bettina von Brauchitsch said.
The couple died on Thursday, and news of their death was first made known the following day. Eberhard von Brauchitsch was 83.
Voluntary euthanasia is a controversial practice whereby patients with terminal illnesses are aided in causing their own death. It is illegal in most European countries. more
