Elderly Australians cook up suicide drugs

‘Groups of elderly Australians are reportedly setting up backyard laboratories to manufacture an illegal euthanasia drug so they can kill themselves when they have had enough of life.

One group has already succeeded in producing the drug nembutal, which is used by vets to put down animals, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation reported on Monday night.

At least four other backyard factories were planned for major cities across the country, with a total of some 800 elderly people prepared to become involved in producing the drug.

Dozens of older Australians were also engaged in illegally importing nembutal from the Mexican border town of Tijuana, close to the US city of San Diego, according to the report.’

    Its a shame the government makes innocent people go to these lengths to end their lives. The ‘right to lifers’ need to but out and get a life of their own rather than meddling in others.

    It is indeed. Still, where there’s a will there’s a way. 🙂

    I’m kinda impressed that they’re putting the time into it to make the appropriate drug, etc.. They’ve obviously had time to think about it, and they seem sure that it’s what they want to do.

    It’s sad they’ve reached a point in their life that they don’t want to live it anymore, but if that’s the choice they want to make, who am I to argue? They’re older, and presumably wiser, than I am.
