Euthanasia Tourism


PHNOM PENH: The governor of a Cambodian
province is suing an American internet cafe owner over a website that
promotes a sleepy corner of the war-scarred southeast Asian nation as
an ideal place for people who want to kill themselves.

Kampot governor Puth Chandarith said yesterday he had filed a suit against
Californian Roger Graham for disseminating false information and defaming
the province on his websites.

"A lot of foreigners were scared to stay here when they learned about
the website saying Kampot was a good place to commit suicide with no pain," he
told Reuters.

Still emerging from decades of war, including the Khmer
Rouge genocide of the 1970s in which 1.7 million people died, Cambodia
has no laws governing euthanasia, and diplomats say it does not rank
as a high priority in one of Asia’s poorest nations.

from the web
site in question

People die in Cambodia. You know this to be true. Life
is the way to death. Whether in Cambodia or some where else, we will
all die. Whether by design or by chance, whether by choice or duress,
sooner or later we will all die.

You’ve just been diagnosed with Cancer. Now comes the
time to answer the question you have always feared. What comes next?

If You are Considering Choosing the Time, Place, and Manner of Your End
of Life Experience Then I Would Like to Recommend that You Visit Cambodia.

We hear evryone is going there now, when all they
used to talk about was Jonestown. Sounds like a growth industry,
although they shouldn’t count on much repeat business….

Welcome to Euthanasia in Cambodia
