Nitschke says suicides planned
A EUTHANASIA advocacy group has confirmed a Gold Coast mother and her two daughters spent months planning their deaths. The bodies of Margaret, Heather and Wynette Cummins were found in one of their Ephraim Island (pictured) homes on Tuesday. Euthanasia advocate Dr Philip Nitschke said the women joined his Exit International group six months ago. “They were not terminally ill people, but on the other hand they were not in the best of health either,” he said. The women bought deadly gas from Dr Nitschke’s “home brewing” company.
