Swiss assisted suicide escorts produce film
25 November 2014
Switzerland has some of the most permissive laws on euthanasia in the world
A Swiss association which exists to provide 'escorts' to those who wish to be given the means to commit suicide has produced a video about its work.
The film, made by Exit ADMD, shows the escorts during their meetings, socialising and going about their work, which some of them referred to as their "vocation". One escort tells a woman to whom he gives a lethal drink: "Have a good journey ... May the light guide you ... May it lead you to peace." [Catholic Herald, 17 November]
