Supreme Court Rejects Effort to Curtail Assisted Suicide
As reported in the International Herald Tribune and in other news outlets, the court ruled that former attorney general John Ashcroft acted without legal authority five years ago when he threw the federal government's weight against the Death With Dignity Act in Oregon.

Through the personal stories of former professor Lisette Nigot, who wants to die, and Dr. Philip Nitschke, our New Release MADEMOISELLE AND THE DOCTOR is a balanced analysis of the international debate about the right to die. The journal Pop Politics said the film, "Does what no one has been able to do before... It explores the mind and thoughts of people who believe death can be a choice in a non-hysterical way. Whether you agree or disagree with the issue of euthanasia this documentary is a Must-see!"
