Ah, yes, the pro-deathers are now moving to redefine suicide – it’s now called, at least to one proponent, “euthanizing oneself.” Uh-huh.
Euthanasia debate: Wife's death video
The woman whose death has reignited the voluntary euthanasia debate filmed a video message to help clear her husband of any criminal liability.
Evans Mott, 61, walked free from the High Court at Auckland yesterday without a conviction after pleading guilty to assisting the suicide of his wife, Rosie.
Mrs Mott took her own life soon after Christmas last year. A few months earlier, she recorded a short film which Justice Patricia Courtney watched before yesterday's sentencing hearing.
The Herald has also watched the posthumous "farewell" message during an exclusive interview with Mr Mott.
