Legal Euthanasia a recipe for disaster, says EPC

Group says BCCLA's lawsuit could lead to elder abuse

The Euthanasia Prevention Coalition - BC has released a statement on their website discussing how legalized assisted suicide and euthanasia is a recipe for elder abuse and threatens individual rights.

This is in anticipation of the B.C. Civil Liberties Association's lawsuit to legalize euthanasia and assisted suicide, in which the EPC-BC has been granted intervenor status. The case goes to court Nov. 14.

Besides the specifics of the BCCLA Case, the article discusses issues such as how legal assisted suicide encourages people to throw their lives away, can cause a "suicide contagion," and protects doctors and heirs.

For more information on the case, contact Will Johnston, a family doctor and chair of the EPC-BC.
