RADICAL SECULARISM'S VERSION OF DEATH WITH DIGNITY--TELEVISED ASSISTED SUICIDE
From PressAssociation: "The moment a man died in an assisted suicide will be broadcast on British television.
"Craig Ewert, 59, suffered from motor neurone disease and chose to end his life rather than endure the "torture" he feared his degenerative condition meant.
"The former university professor, who lived in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, travelled to Switzerland to die in a suicide assisted by the controversial organisation Dignitas.
At a Zurich clinic and with his wife Mary by his side, the American father-of-two drank a mixture of sedatives and turned off his own ventilator using his teeth.
He had allowed his death in September 2006 to be filmed for a documentary by Oscar-winning director John Zaritsky, which will be broadcast on Sky Real Lives at 9pm on Wednesday.
"Liberal Swiss laws have allowed Zurich-based Dignitas, founded in 1998, to legally offer assisted suicides and so far more than 600 people have died at its clinics.
"Before his death, Mr Ewert said: "If I go through with it, I die as I must at some point. If I don't go through with it, my choice is to suffer, for my family to suffer and then die. The fact that I know the date I'm going to die simply makes definite what was previously indefinite."
The significance and value of suffering is lost on modern man--with the majority of mankind rejecting their crosses. But those of us who understand the power of the cross will no doubt be blessed with the opportunity to share in Christ's cross in these last days.
