Phillip Nitschke Launches ‘Militant’ Campaign for Unrestricted Adult Access to Euthanasia

December 5, 2016

(The Guardian) – The voluntary euthanasia advocate Philip Nitschke has launched a “militant” campaign to push for unrestricted adult access to a peaceful death. Nitschke announced the launch of Exit Action on Sunday morning, describing the new organisation as a subgroup of Exit International, which campaigns, runs workshops and distributes information on voluntary euthanasia. Exit Action said it would take “a militant pro-euthanasia position” to coordinate direct action strategies and force legislative change.
