Jack Kevorkian might be gone, but his spirit lives on -- well, maybe living isn't the best way to put it...
For the first time ever, this Friday night, a website will run a live broadcast of a terminally ill man ending his life in a case of assisted suicide.
Nikolai Ivanisovich, 62, is terminally ill with brain cancer. He will die before cameras and a worldwide audience at a clinic in Switzerland, with the use of lethal injection administered by a physician.
The filming of his death will be broadcast on BattleCam.com, a 24/7 Reality TV website where live events are regularly cast to a wide range of audiences. The site is run by billionaire businessman Alki David, who purchased the exclusive rights to broadcast the process.
"I am grateful to Mr. David and his team for making this possible," Ivanisovich told Russia Today. "My family will be able to live in prosperity after I pass. May God bless Mr. David for his kindness and generosity.
"Projecting the moral questions that will arise from this event, I would like to add that I find nothing wrong with this at all.
Death is a fact of life... many governments throughout the western world, including Switzerland, Belgium and Luxembourg, recognize the importance the right to each individual's right to end their life, free of terminal pain."

Pro-life and Moral Absolutes Ping!
I’ve seen enough people die, no thanks.
This should be an interesting thread.
I will not be watching.
That will be the world minus me...
This man can die without me in the audience. I refuse to dishonor him by watching. I despise voyeurs.
Great, not only is he an exhibitionist, he’s got a death fetish.
I think that some things should be private. One of them is death moments. I believe that self-euthanasia is a deeply private choice which should be allowed, but should not be an opportunity for exhibitionist behavior. I won’t be watching.
This is ridiculous. aAt least public depictions of death should occur in the local arena, with sword fights between comvicts. Just imagine death lovers once again comes the murmillos, the retiarius a thraex or two, the roar of the crowd! Good Lord! None of this swallowing or injecting chemicals with a simple expiration but a real death before millions!
Note the tagline.
Well the Nazi’s did pretty much the same thing to justify their Euthanasia Program. 1941, “I ACCUSE”
Europe sure loves those Nazi programs don’t they.

Barbarity gussied up with modern technology is nothing more than primitive barbarity. Words fail me.
What? Youtube wasn’t interested?
Surely this is the end times..
Not really aligned to this particular article, but none the less..Humans offing themselves in front of other humans isn't exactly a recent thing.
What's the price of a soul?
