first assisted suicide to be broadcast live

Jack Kevorkian might be gone, but his spirit lives on -- well, maybe living isn't the best way to put it...

 

For the first time ever, this Friday night, a website will run a live broadcast of a terminally ill man ending his life in a case of assisted suicide.

 

Nikolai Ivanisovich, 62, is terminally ill with brain cancer. He will die before cameras and a worldwide audience at a clinic in Switzerland, with the use of lethal injection administered by a physician.

 

The filming of his death will be broadcast on BattleCam.com, a 24/7 Reality TV website where live events are regularly cast to a wide range of audiences.

The site is run by billionaire businessman Alki David, who purchased the exclusive rights to broadcast the process.

 

"I am grateful to Mr. David and his team for making this possible," Ivanisovich told Russia Today. "My family will be able to live in prosperity after I pass. May God bless Mr. David for his kindness and generosity.

 

"Projecting the moral questions that will arise from this event, I would like to add that I find nothing wrong with this at all.

 

“Death is a fact of life... many governments throughout the western world, including Switzerland, Belgium and Luxembourg, recognize the importance the right to each individual's right to end their life, free of terminal pain."

 

The controversial event comes at a time the world is in the midst of a debate on assisted suicides: In the United States, it is legal only in the states of Oregon, Montana and Washington.

 

"This is a breakthrough in consciousness on what we watch,” BattleCam Operations VP Claude Haraser said, “and how we watch it."

meh... don't really care one way or another...

 

although i (as do many) have a pretty profound interest in death, it usually has to be something dramatic to ignite that interest... this sounds boring.

Dont see the appeal in this at all.

 

I assumed it would have some assisted suicide advocacy spin.

 

Dont read article, form opinion FTW.

If it was an assissted suicide of someone getting shot in the face with a shotgun I would maybe have watched, but this seems boring.

meh.

 

I would rather watch how he lives his last 48 hours more than him getting lethal injection and "falling asleep".

 

You can google better suicides that are more exciting, if you're into that kind of thing.

A blonde calls her boyfriend and says, "Please come over here and help me. I have a killer jigsaw puzzle, and I can't figure out how to get it started."

 

He asks, "What is it supposed to be when it's finished?"

 

The blonde says, "According to the picture on the box, it's a tiger."

 

Her boyfriend decides to go over and help with the puzzle. She lets him in and shows him where she has the puzzle spread all over the table.

 

He studies the pieces for a moment, then looks at the box, then turns to her and says, "First of all, no matter what we do, we're not going to be able to assemble these pieces into anything resembling a tiger."

He takes her hand and says, "Second, I want you to relax. Let's have a nice cup of tea, and then....." he sighed, "we'll put all these Frosted Flakes back in the box.
