Into the Sucide Room

H/t to Witness to Love for this news report The whole film is obviously intended to present a positive picture of assisted suicide, with close-ups of a candle in a corner and the bed for the suicide to lie on made up with colourful linen. However, it still makes chilling viewing and I agree with Witness that the suicide assistant's smile is 'eerily revealing'. It is appalling to imagine that there are campaigners in Britain and across Europe trying to legalise this appalling trade in despair. That is what it is. Organisations that help people commit suicide thrive on despair and a cosy-looking room cannot distract attention from that fact.
