The BBC aired a documentary produced by author Terry Pratchett last night which shows the final moments of Peter Smedley’s life in a Dignitas assisted suicide clinic in Switzerland. NRL News Editor Dave Andrusko wrote about the show for NRL News Today. According to London’s Daily Mail, as of just a few hours ago, the BBC has received nearly 900 complaints about the one-sided presentation “romanticizing” assisted suicide.
Early today, we received a call for a response from NTN24, a Colombian-based 24-hour cable news outlet which can be seen both in the United States and throughout Latin America. National Right to Life’s Cristina Minniti-Perez responded to the documentary saying compassion, not death, is what patentients need. Cristina’s interview served to provide a strong pro-life pespective to viewers around the world.
