The Euthanasia Prevention Coalition (EPC) offers condolences to the family of Susan Griffiths. Griffiths died by assisted suicide in Switzerland. We understand the fear that Griffiths had for her future, but it would be dangerous to give a group of people (physicians), the right in law to intentionally cause death, even if the person asks to die. Legalizing euthanasia and/or assisted suicide would have significant negative consequences for society.
This is a good time to write to your local newspaper, national media or your Member of Parliament.
The push to legalize euthanasia through the back-door in Quebec can be stopped.
A coalition of groups have organized the Springtime March against euthanasia on May 18 in Quebec City under the banner Euthanasia in Quebec? No Thanks! We are encouraging everyone to visit Quebec City and attend the Springtime March on May 18. More information here.

EPC received a legal bill of more than $40,000 in our intervention at the BC Court of Appeal in the Carter case, the case that seeks to legalize euthanasia and assisted suicide. We still have $30,000 remaining to pay on the legal bill. Please consider making a generation donation towards the cost of our intervention in the Carter case.
