91-Year-Old Woman Selling $60 Suicide Kits
This is so fucked up...

[link to morallowground.com]
An elderly California woman has ignited heated controversy by selling mail-order suicide kits. According to the Daily Beast, Sharlotte Hydorn, age 91, personally assembles the kits and sells them for $60 through her company, the Gladd Group. Each kit contains a plastic bag, a tube and a book titled Final Exit, all packed into a white box adorned with a butterfly. Customers have to rent a helium tank; they place their head in the plastic bag and run a hose from the bag to the tank. Helium is lethal in its pure form.

Four months ago, the first confirmed suicide attributed to Hydorn’s kit was reported in Oregon when 29-year-old Nick Klonoski, who was not terminally ill but reportedly suffered from depression, was found dead in his bed with a plastic bag over his head and a Gladd Group helium-hood kit in the room.

Nick’s brother Zack was incensed. “In a society where so many people suffer from depression and other mental health disorders, this company has found their niche in the market by peddling death,” he testified at a state legislative hearing earlier this month.

Re: 91-Year-Old Woman Selling $60 Suicide Kits
She made over $90,000 last year...
Most of them probably were not used by terminally ill people.

The Gladd company, so named as to avoid suspicion in case family members happen to sign for or come across the package, made $60 off my brother’s death.”

According to the Daily Beast, the Gladd Group’s estimated annual sales are $98,000, meaning that Hydorn sells 1,633 suicide kits each year.

Helium is not lethal, it's the lack of oxygen that's lethal.

The brother being pissed about her making $60 off his death is laughable. Is he pissed at the funeral parlor for making thousands of dollars of his death too?

Re: 91-Year-Old Woman Selling $60 Suicide Kits
The heavy hand of the feds has shown once again that we no longer live in a free country. While I understand and sympathize with the grief of any surviving relative or friend of someone who self delivers I really wonder if there would have been such a heavy handed action on the part of both the feds and the state of Oregon if the mother of the young man who used one of the kits was not a US District Judge?

I read in a blog post somewhere recently why suicide may be such a taboo in our modern society. The blog poster surmised that suicide was made a taboo by man's early slave owners because they could not afford to have their slaves killing themselves and thus by being a taboo they would continue working for their masters. Thus it was placed into most religious writings so people would fear an afterlife in hell versus continuing to live in their present hell of slavery.

I never really thought about that aspect of why it is so taboo before but after studying how most religions came about it makes sense that they had to propagate a myth that living in hell here is far superior to living in hell in some fantasy created nether land.

The government probably wouldn't object to this unless it affected the amount of income tax they should be receiving. They probably consider the sick and the elderly a burden on the countries services.

People are going to find ways to kill themselves with or without the kit. Would you rather someone jump in front of a train and make a big mess or use the bag with helium and make a clean exit?

I take it there is not a lot of repeat customers for this kind of product. I think I'll save my $60 and go suck on the tail pipe of my car if I feel the suicide urge, I guess people will buy anything, CRAZY.

yeah, the penny for me dropped when I heard about the Chinese workers who had the anti suicide clauses written into their worker contracts.

If they do kill themselves, "the squad", is sent off to their families places with notices of eviction, and sundry other things.

Now you know how all religion is banned in China, so they don't have access to the - 'oh you will be made to suffer in the afterlife"- line. So instead they flog you with the 'oh your family will be made to suffer horrible things if you kill yourself", instead.

Lets face it, life is just bearable when things are going smoothly, if you live in horrible circumstances and forced to endure endless indignity you can be sure its only because some sadistic bully is blackmailing you.
