The talk is open to everyone. Schadenberg will discuss how all forms of euthanasia are forms of murder and should continue to be treated as acts of homicide. Schadenberg will also highlight certain bills and cases that may legalize euthanasia, as well as ways people can get involved with the government to respond to issues related to euthanasia and assisted suicide.

The Abbotsford Right to Life Society an Abbotsford and Mission-based charity opened in 1980. They work to defend human life through education and counseling services.

Schadenberg established the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition in 1999. He has been advocating for the abolishment of euthanasia almost his life.
