Suspected Suicide Ring Defends Mission

Even Jack Kevorkian doesn't agree with this bunch. As authorities try to determine how many deaths nationwide may be linked to an alleged assisted suicide ring, members of a group known as the Final Exit Network are defending a mission they call "self-deliverance." In my opinion suicide is the same as murdering yourself and someone helping you to do it is also guilty.

The network's president, its medical director and two other members were charged Wednesday in the death of John Celmer, a 58 year old Georgia man who suffered for years from cancer of the throat and mouth. They each face up to five years in prison if convicted on assisted suicide charges. I don't feel this is enough punishment.
