Ludwig Meneli(?) Dignitas Founder seems reasonable, that if people have the recourse available, that more suicide vctims could reach out for counselling.–And change their mind.
The Coumbiases were neither terminally ill, or even what you can say, "sick"! Their whole agenda was purely to have a romantic "legal suicide" before they become degenerated with sickness or age.
The obvious points I see in the documentary are both couple’s selfishness and superiority-complex.
The so-called Oscar winning producer designed this film with an axe to grind against Disabled People, who depend on others our entire lives.
Craig Ewart used his need for a ventilator to attack Christians for using technology to save lives, and prolong lives. He used his degenerative condition to sneer at people who depend on ventilators, and to get people to feel sorry for him.
This producer uses his documentary to build sympathy for these couples, and through that pity, the viewing audience will embrace the subtle propaganda to demand their support for legalizing Euthanasia.
Dr. Sweizer seemed to be a genuine doctor, and adhered to a doctor’s code of ethics. That code is to save life, alleviate pain, and even to help improve one’s state of health.
After being refused the prescription for their romantic suicide, Mr. Coumbias rambles on in a car ride back home, that he thought the Swiss authorities would have been more "advanced in their thinking".
Since the Coumbiases are so advanced in their thinking, I think their Canadian citizenship should be revoked, and they should be deported to their home country where they are so advanced. The producer, also, would be happier in the more advanced parts of the world, where the Dark Ages thrive.
Between Dr. Sweizer and Arthur Bernhard, a retired social-worker, they seem pretty concerned for the people they serve. However, what was filmed by this agenda-driven producer and what Euthanasia militants have boasted about at their conferences, seems to differ a little.
According to this documentary, there have been people who changed their mind, and decided to go home. This contradicts what they boasted about at the 2006 Toronto World Federation of Right-to-Die Societies. They explained that their advertising campaign was so effective, that some people who decided to go back home to think it over, were told that they didn’t come all that way to go home.–So, they were refused the right to go home. That changes it from "assissted suicide" to "murder"!
