A controversial pro-euthanasia television ad, which was to air on Sunday night, has been banned.
The ad's creator, lobby group Exit International, says the ban is a violation of free speech and they will try with a different version within days.
The ad shows an ill-looking actor sitting on a bed in his pyjamas.
He reflects on the choices he has made throughout his life, then says he did not choose to be terminally ill.

How much funding will governments give old-folks' homes once euthanasia is legal?
How will sick, elderly people be treated who want medical care when other oldies are conveniently offing themselves and costing the community nothing?
Yes, euthania should be legal. But first we need a caring social structure, not one that denies help to those in trouble or says, "don't feed the poor, it only encourages them to breed". We need a return to the ethics of judging a society by the way it treats its needy. We need a government we can trust.
