When it comes to the issue of assisted suicide in Canada we are living in tremendously important days. Today the committee which will give recommendations regarding the issue to Parliament will meet to discuss what those recommendations will be.
This is a very an important time for us all to take action.
ARPA Canada has created an "easy mailer" tool and are calling for at least 1,000 of these letters to be sent to the committee ASAP. We are joining forces with them to help make this happen. We may also follow this up with a paper mailing as well (stay tuned).
Please take a moment to send a letter to the committee using this easy tool. It only takes a few minutes and, if we all do it, it will make a tremendous impact for "life" in Canada.
Please also take a moment to share this information with your friends. Click on the icons at the top of this e-mail to share this on Facebook, Twitter etc. Thank you so much for helping us get this important call to action out.
CHILLING FACTS REGARDING ASSISTED SUICIDE:
"A report in Current Oncology in 2011 summarized euthanasia in the Netherlands by saying that in 30 years, it “has moved from euthanasia of people who are terminally ill, to euthanasia of those who are chronically ill; from euthanasia for physical illness, to euthanasia for mental illness; from euthanasia for mental illness, to euthanasia for psychological distress of mental suffering,” and now to euthanasia of those over 70 who are simply “tired of living.” - (Calgary Herald — January 3, 2014)
“In 1994, the Dutch were the first in the world to officially legalize assisted dying…I was convinced that legalizing assisted dying was the wisest and most respectful route…we have been naive.” Theo Boer, Professor of Health Care Ethics at Kampen University in The Netherlands.
One in 30 deaths in Holland are now from euthanasia….”In that kind of culture euthanasia becomes expected and inevitable and everything else– such as good palliative care and a functional hospice movement — is gradually portrayed as rather selfish. ” (Daily Mail, United Kingdom — September 24, 2013)
“...there are concerns in the Netherlands itself about the rise in the number of cases and pressure on patients….Sometimes it’s the family who go to the doctor….And you hear anecdotally of families saying, 'Mum, there’s always euthanasia.'” - (Dutch News, July 3, 2015)
"In a stunning development, dutch doctors say that the anguish of parents is another reason to euthanize disabled babies." (Mercator.net — June 14, 2013)
