‘Dr. Death’ Promotes Coffin-Shaped Suicide Pod Invention Offering People a ‘Quick Death’


(The Christian Post) – An assisted suicide advocate nicknamed “Dr. Death,” who once argued that troubled teens should be allowed to kill themselves, has garnered global attention for his latest invention: a coffin-shaped pod that enables people to end their lives with the push of a button.

The man behind the invention, Philip Nitschke, is a former physician and the head of Exit International, a nonprofit organization that campaigns for assisted suicide and voluntary euthanasia legislation.

Nitschke’s nonprofit has also developed 3-D Printed Sarco Pods, which the Exit International founder revealed are expected to be used in Switzerland. CONTINUE
