Message on suicide

HE has been dubbed Dr Death, but Phillip Nitschke says the message on voluntary euthanasia he will bring to Bundaberg next month is still very much alive.

Dr Nitschke will hold an End of Life Choice seminar in the Civic Centre on Tuesday, February 7, from 1pm-2pm followed by a workshop.

The Bundaberg visit is part of a nationwide tour Dr Nitschke is doing, with only two stops in Queensland.

In 1996 Dr Nitschke became the the first physician in the world to administer a legal, lethal voluntary injection under the Rights of the Terminally Ill Act of the Northern Territory.

He said yesterday his aim was to give people to information they needed so they could peacefully end their own lives.
