Suicide “Factory” Opens Next to Brothel

The assisted suicide group Dignitas has opened it’s killing house next to a brothel. From the story:

The Swiss assisted suicide group Dignitas, which was evicted from itsflat in Zurich after complaints about bodies in the lift, has opened whatneighbours have labelled a ‘death factory’ on a business park next to the country’s biggest brothel. The new property on the Gewerbezentrums Ifang business park, in the village of Schwerzenbach, near Zurich, includes a private cargo lift–for coffins. Since it opened earlier this year, 23 clients have walked in the front door and been carried out at the back in a box.

Sigh. Rarely has a story so captured the tenor of our times.
