Important Poll

 

There is an online poll at: www.sympatico.ca

You will find the poll by scrolling down on the screen.

 

The question is: Do you support Dr. Jack Kevorkian’s belief in the right to assisted suicide?

– Yes Everyone should have that choice?

– Depends on the Situation?

– No, suicide of any kind is wrong?

– I don’t really know?

 

The question is not accurate to our concerns but please vote NO anyway. The NO side is currently at 16%

 

The Third International Symposium on Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide that  took place this weekend in Vancouver BC (June 3 – 4) was the best Symposium on Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide. The new information and growth in a common direction was phenomenal.

 

There was a leaders meeting on Thursday afternoon (June 2) where we discussed the language and the current directions of the issues. We also discussed how to better brand our message and improve our unified message.

 

It was decided that Hugh Scher, the legal counsel for the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition was chosen to lead a process of examining our message and possible ideas arounding branding and imaging.

 

We then discussed working together and planning a unified growth strategy and we agreed that Alex Schadenberg (myself) would continue to chair the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition International. Paul Russell (HOPE Australia), Peter Saunders (Care NOT Killing Alliance UK) Margaret Dore (Seattle Washington), Nancy Elliott (New Hampshire) and Mark Pickup (Human Life Matters – Edmonton AB) would join that committee. Subsequently, Paul Russell from Australia has been chosen to be the Vice-Chair.

 

The Third International Symposium on Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide created a unified team who are committed to a unified focus on an international basis.

 

It has also been determined that a European Symposium on Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide will take place in Scotland in the first half of 2012 and an Australian (regional) Symposium on Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide will take place in the second half of 2012.

 

The location and date for the Fourth International Symposium on Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide will be determined within the next year.

 

A package of DVD’s containing every presentation at the Third International Symposium on Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide can be ordered for $50.

Disabled People Fear

Peter Saunders, a leader with the Care Not Killing Alliance in the UK, and a speaker at the upcoming Third International Symposium on Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide, recently published an article concerning the recent Comres poll that found that 70% of people with disabilities were concerned that if legal, they would be pressured into dying by assisted suicide.

Hostility towards disabled people increasing

A recent Scope survey suggests that hostility from strangers towards disabled people is on the increase. Although this is primarily directed at those assumed to be so called “benefit scroungers” this is yet another attack on disabled peoples rights. It also adds fuel to the fire that we are an expensive drain on society and that our lives are not that valuable. It adds to the propaganda designed to suggest that perhaps assisted suicide has some value to society as whole! We need to counteract this insidious idea wherever we see it!
