A Coalition Against Bill C-384

The Catholic Register reports on efforts to Stop Bill C-384 (a bill which proposes to legalize euthanasia and assisted suicide, and could see a second reading in the fall):

A coalition of organizations hope to defeat the bill on second reading, a vote that could happen early in the fall. The organizations include Euthanasia Prevention CoalitionCatholic Organization for Life and FamilyCatholic Civil Rights League and the Canadian Federation of Catholic Physicians’ Societies.

Alex Schadenberg knows what he’s talking about:

“It’s not about your choice, it’s about doctors and medical practitioners having the right to take someone else’s life if they follow the rules properly,” said Alex Schadenberg, executive director of the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition…

“Good palliative care creates death with dignity,” he said, calling it “insulting” to equate euthanasia with a dignified death.

“To assume the only way to have dignity when you’re dying is to inject a poison into your bloodstream seems ridiculous at best,” he said.
