Philip Nitschke, MBBS, PhD, Director and Founder of Exit International, in a June 5, 2001 National Review Online interview, "Euthanasia Sets Sail," stated:

“My personal position is that if we believe that there is a right to life, then we must accept that people have a right to dispose of that life whenever they want… I do not believe that telling people they have a right to life while denying them the means, manner, or information necessary for them to give this life away has any ethical consistency.”
