Bill C-384 Squashed; Euthanasia Prevention Coalition now focusing on how Canadians can live with dignity
We’re a little late in posting the news, but Bill C-384 was defeated by a vote of 228-59. Alex Schadenberg and the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition aren’t stopping with this victory though.
We are working to turn the debate on this issue to a debate on how Canadians can live with dignity.
We recognize that many people have raised legitimate concerns.
It is our goal to work with members of parliament and other Canadian leaders to identify ways to:
- improve palliative/hospice care throughout Canada,
- change attitudes and improve services for people with disabilities,
- institute an effective national suicide prevention strategy,
- promote programs that identify and eliminate the scourge of elder abuse.
We must continue to build a nation that upholds the dignity of all its citizens.
We must continue to create a paradigm that protects all Canadians, including its most vulnerable.
We reject the concept that killing can be the answer to problems that are properly solved by a caring society.
