The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency and the Medical Board of Australia will launch investigations of voluntary euthanasia advocate Philip Nitschke. He had given advice on how to commit rational suicide to a Perth man, who was a suspect in his wife’s death. Nitschke maintains he had no duty to refer the 45-year-old to a psychiatrist, and he does not think that depression was a factor in the man’s decision to end his life. The Australian Medical Students’ Association has withdrawn an invitation to Nitschke to speak at its national congress
