Hmmm.

While I have no problem with people who have terminal illnesses wishing to end their suffering through euthanasia...I personally don't think that'd be the thing I'd want to witness at a concert. Most people go to concerts for fun, not to watch people die (I've never understood why people came to see hangings or the other methods people have been put to death by-like those who watch someone get a lethal injection or something...I find it really disturbing that people enjoy watching that stuff).

But then again, with that crowd, it might make more sense to them to witness this.

*Shrugs* I dunno. I find it disturbing...but whatever.

A backstreet suicide runs along the same vein as the abortion debate MissV. Anyone willing to get assistance with euthanising themselves must find a doctor willing to help which is extremely difficult as the doctor risks losing his/her licence by breaking the Oath.
The one big difference with this is it simply is no more than a public suicide while wishing to create a huge spectacle. This can't possibly fall under the already tenuous label of euthanasia as I cant see how any doctor would be willing or able to stand up in such a large public audience and help. Suicide on its own is illegal, and currently euthanasia is as well. the only difference I see between the 2 is one is after the support and backing of the law and medical profession to help ensure it is humane and done only as a last resort to put an end to unimaginable suffering.

Sorry for rambling, this is not a political debate in FYM. This makes me sick. Its a mockery.

has anyone checked the link bonochick provided?

they seem like one heck of a band, don't they??

i'll stay out of this debate, it's way too fymish for me. bottom line is i think it's disturbing if it's real, but i have a feeling it's a publicity stunt.

I think it's hype for the concert and isn't even really planned.

"Hell on Earth -- whose songs include "Toilet Licking Maggot" and "Raped by the Virgin Mary" and whose past stage stunts, according to Tourtelot, include having intercourse with cows and drinking blended rats"

But now even we're talking about this stupid band. Which is why I say it's all publicity.

The show has been canceled:

Quote:
...the theater's owner, David Hundley, promptly canceled the band's show, and another venue also turned away the event.

Band leader Billy Tourtelot has vowed that the concert and suicide will still take place at an undisclosed location in the city, broadcast live on the band's Web site.

Indeed. Suddenly "Meat Hook Sodomy" doesn't shock me at all.

Point one, it's sick. And point two, how in the world do they think this raises awareness for "dying with dignity." All it will do is to turn people against the idea of euthanasia, because it's such a provocative and disturbing stunt.
