ST. PETERSBURG, October 1, 2003 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The rock band Hell on Earth will go ahead with an onstage suicide during a small private performance in St. Petersburg, Fla., despite an emergency city law banning the use of suicide in any kind of show or advertising. Initially planned for a large public venue, the event will now take place at an undisclosed private location.

"The show will go on," said Billy Tourtelot, 33, the band leader. "It will be available on the Internet and it will be in the city limits." He claimed the purpose is to highlight the need for legalized doctor-assisted suicide. "This person will be doing this self-deliverance totally by themselves, on [sic] their own accord," he said.

St. Petersburg council member Bill Foster commented, "While I still think it's a publicity stunt, we still couldn't sit idly by and let somebody lose their life." However, the emergency legislation provides for only a maximum 60 days in jail and a $500 fine.
