Australian Border Force has seized and destroyed copies of a book that provides information on euthanasia and assisted suicide to the elderly and the seriously ill.

The Peaceful Pill Handbook, written by euthanasia advocate and former doctor, Philip Nitschke, is published in Holland but copies have been seized on arrival in Australia.

People who have ordered the book receive instead a note from the Border Force which reads: “Customs prohibits importation of documents relating to suicide … The importation of a device designed or customised to be used by a person to commit suicide is prohibited absolutely.”
