      MK Feiglin: Life is Triumph, Not Mercy Killing

      MK Moshe Feiglin (Likud) has expressed objection to a recent documentary broadcast on Israeli television and which showed a man who decided to end his life because of his inability to cope with Parkinson’s disease.

      The documentary, which aired on Channel 2’s program “Uvda” hosted by journalist Ilana Dayan, showed the story of Mati Milo (brother of former government minister Roni Milo), who suffered from Parkinson’s for 25 years. As his condition continued to deteriorate, Milo contacted Dignitas, a Swiss company that allows terminally ill patients  to drink a deadly cocktail and kill themselves for a fee.
