Brave New World: Do-It-Yourself Suicide Pod May Be Ready for Swiss Market by Next Year

December 10, 2021 — Breitbart.com reports: “A 3D-printed suicide pod may be ready for the Swiss market as early as 2022, according to its designers.

Sarco, a capsule designed to induce ‘a peaceful, even euphoric death’ through oxygen depletion, according to its website, is the brainchild of former medical doctor Philip Nitschke, described the BBC as having earned the nickname ‘Dr Death’.

Nitschke, who helped people kill themselves in Australia in the 1990s, aims to ’de-medicalise the dying process’ with the pod, the BBC reports, ‘remove[ing] any kind of psychiatric review from the process and allow[ing] the individual to control the method [of suicide] themselves.’

Sarco had Daniel Huerlimann — ‘a legal expert and assistant professor at the University of St Gallen’, according to the BBC — assess the legality of the pod, and he said that ’the pod is not covered by Swiss law’ because it ‘[does] not constitute a medical device’…”  (These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:  A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,  An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,  A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren– Proverbs 6:16-19 [emphasis mine].  Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,  Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:  Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them – Romans 1:29-32.  These barbarians will soon …be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:  Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched – Mark 9:43, 44.)
