According to the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition, it is extremely likely that Bill C-384 will proceed to second reading on Tuesday, April 20 with a critical vote on Wednesday, April 21st.
We urge all our supporters to call or E-mail their Member of Parliament (or all Members of Parliament) right away urging them to vote against this Bill. Should this Bill pass legislation it will legalize euthanasia in Canada.
Alex Schadenberg, EPC’s executive director of the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition has said, “We must soundly defeat Bill C-384 to discourage other MP’s from also attempting to legalize euthanasia in Canada”. The coalition provided basic text as a suggested letter to send to MPs. The text reads, “I am concerned that if euthanasia or assisted suicide were legalized in Canada that it would become the ultimate form of elder abuse and people with disabilities would often experience subtle pressures to ‘choose’ to die. Please vote against Bill C-384.”
