Nancy Crick, Australian Euthanasia Advocate,
Was Cancer Free When She Died by Suicide

by Kevin Caruso

Nancy Crick, a strong advocate for euthanasia, claimed that she was terminally ill from advanced cancer when she died by suicide on May 22, 2002, but a post-mortem report has revealed that she was cancer free when she died.

Bob Atkinson, Queensland Police Commissioner, said on June 9, 2004, that charges may be filed against the individuals who assisted in the suicide. The participants could receive a sentence from 10 years to life in prison.

Crick used an open diary on a website to describe her plans and indicated that her death should be used as a legal test for euthanasia.

Philip Nitschke, another Australian who is a strong advocate for euthanasia, and who consulted with Ms. Crick before she died, maintains the irresponsible and idiotic belief that anyone who wants to die by suicide, even if they are just mentally ill, should be allowed to do so. "To my mind it didn't matter [whether she had cancer or not], said Nitschke."The euthanasia movement is about right of choice. Nancy had a choice."

Not only does Nitschke not speak accurately for the euthanasia movement, but exhibits the highest levels of irresponsibility, stupidity, and ignorance.

People who are mentally ill cannot think straight because they have a chemical imbalance in their brain. So, they cannot make a "rational" decision. Many people who are depressed or have similar mental illnesses think that they want to die.

But in actuality, they do not want to die, they just want their pain to end.

Irresponsible losers like Nitschke are dangerous because they tell people who are mentally ill that suicide is an option.


Treatment is the option to pursue.

And the vast majority of people who receive treatment for a mental illness get better.

If you think that you or someone you know has a mental illness, please seek treatment immediately.

If you or someone you know is suicidal, please go to the Home Page of this website for immediate help.

Thank you.

I love you.

Take care,

Kevin Caruso
