Dignitas: Assisted Suicide in Switzerland

Simon Cox asks what it really means when a Briton commits suicide in Switzerland and probes the myths and reality of the Dignitas organisation.

The Report reveals how Swiss right-to-die organisations have extended their services to yet more controversial areas: helping the mentally ill, or those in pain or depressed, to die. He examines the process in detail and asks what safeguards exist.
