Please sign the online Petition to stop the Abuse

Please sign and Share with others, the link above, so they can sign also.


Petition to the Attorney General of Canada

WHEREAS: In 2010, a bill to legalize euthanasia and assisted suicide was defeated in Parliament by a vote of 228 to 59.
WHEREAS: Legalizing euthanasia or assisted suicide is contrary to official government policies such as the prevention of elder abuse. Elder abuse is a significant problem in Canada. Abusers of the elderly are often family members. Carter’s notice of claim seeks to enable family members to facilitate euthanasia and/or assisted suicide.
WHEREAS: In the state of Oregon, where assisted suicide is legal, patients desiring treatment under the government health plan have been offered assisted suicide instead. Our government healthcare system would be similarly empowered if euthanasia or assisted suicide were made legal in Canada.
WHEREAS: In Oregon, other types of suicides have increased since the legalization of assisted suicide. We don’t need the “Oregon experience.”
We, the undersigned residents of Canada, urge the Attorney General to adopt the strongest possible opposition to the legalization of euthanasia and/or assisted suicide. We the undersigned support the mission and efforts of the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition.

Please vote
