Opponents of euthanasia have launched the "Killing is not Care" media campaign in Quebec in advance of a May 18 March on Quebec City. Deborah Gyapong of Canadian Catholic News reports:

The campaign includes a professionally produced television spot in English and French that shows ill patients in hospital with captions that read: "The most vulnerable need our protection," "Only 30 per cent of patients have access to palliative care," "Medical aid in dying is killing," and "Killing is not care."

"Together, Living with Dignity and the Physicians' Alliance for Total Refusal of Euthanasia seek to build awareness around the risks inherent in legalizing physician-assisted death," said a May 5 news release from the Physicians' Alliance. "The Quebec government is working on a bill to legalize 'medical aid in dying' which really amounts to nothing else but euthanasia."
