This might be your final chance to take advantage of the services of Dignitas, the notorious Swiss "suicide clinic" that helps clients gracefully exit the crapfest we call "life". Swiss lawmakers are considering a ban on all suicide tourism.
At the root of the Swiss Government's initiative is a fear that the cheerful Heidi-and-cowbells image is being tarnished by suicide tourists. About 400 turned to clinics for help in committing suicide in 2007, 132 of them from abroad.
This is a legitimate fear. But what the Swiss government doesn't realize is that all the hip young suicides have for years steered clear of Dignitas because it's "where all the tourists go."
