In this June 19, 2015 photo, Dr. Gustavo Quintana, who helps people with terminal illnesses end their lives, speaks during an interview in Bogota, Colombia. Most of the procedures he performs are in people’s home, with the patient surrounded by loved ones. Sometimes music is played. During the nine minutes the procedure typically lasts he whispers the same soothing mantra while injecting a cocktail of lethal drugs: “Rest, you’re going to sleep for the last time, a restorative sleep.” (AP Photo/Fernando Vergara)BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) — Dr. Gustavo Quintana walks out of a modest, two-floor apartment building in southern Bogota. Inside his black doctor's bag are vials containing anesthesia and muscle relaxants, a syringe and a rubber tourniquet.
