Nitschke accused of normalising suicide

Perth-based pain management specialist Dr Mark Schutze, who lodged the complaint with AHPRA, told MO that during a seminar organised by doctors at the Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital, Dr Nitschke argued that anyone over the age of 70 should have the right to euthanasia.

Dr Schutze alleges that Dr Nitschke advocated euthanasia for those grieving the loss of a spouse or prevented from partaking in hobbies such as golf due to poor health.
