Thalidomide was first marketed in 1957 in West Germany under the trade-name Contergan. The German drug company Chemie Gr端nenthal developed and sold the drug. Primarily prescribed as a sedative or hypnotic, thalidomide also claimed to cure anxiety, insomnia, gastritis, and tension. Afterwards, it was used against nausea and to alleviate morning sickness in pregnant women.

Thalidomide became an over-thecounter drug in West Germany on October 1/1957. Shortly after the drug was sold in West Germany, between 5,000 and 7,000 infants were born with malformation of the limbs. Only 40% of these children survived.

A euthanasia device is a machine engineered to allow an individual to die quickly with minimal pain. The most common devices are those designed to help terminally ill people die by voluntary euthanasia or assisted suicide without prolonged pain. In 1987, Dr. Jack Kevorkian started advertising in Detroit newspapers as a physician consultant for “death counseling”. Two deaths were assisted by means of this device, which delivered the euthanizing drugs mechanically through an IV. Kevorkian called it a “Thanatron”.

:if < Thanatron had three canisters or bottles mounted on a metal frame, about 6 inches (150 mm) wide by 18 inches (460 mm) high. /******************************************************************** Each bottle had a syringe that connected to a single IV line in the person’s arm. ***********************************************************************/ # The first bottle contained ordinary saline, or salt water. # Another contained a sleep-inducing barbiturate called /sodium thiopental, and the third a lethal mixture of /potassium chloride, which immediately stopped the heart, and pancuronium bromide, a paralytic medication to prevent spasms during the dying process. ./The Deliverance Machine was invented by Dr. Philip Nitschke. # Software titled Deliverance /on a notebook computer asked a patient a series of questions intended to confirm his or her intent to die. # If the patient answered affirmatively to all of the questions, the injection of a lethal amount of barbiturates was triggered. #The following three questions were displayed on the laptop screen; each required the patient to click a “Yes” button to proceed:

:then < Are you aware that if you go ahead to the last screen and press the “Yes” button, you will be given a lethal dose of medications and die? Are you certain you understand that if you proceed and press the “Yes” button on the next screen that you will die? In 15 seconds you will be given a lethal injection ... press “Yes” to proceed > :End
