This was an important past few months for the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition (EPC). I celebrated my 20th year of service to EPC and the organization continues to prevent euthanasia and assisted suicide in Canada and world-wide.
When you read the article in our newsletter about a New Jersey physician challenging the assisted suicide law in the courts, you will not know how we were involved in the case. Because we were directly involved, we were the first to announce when Justice Paul Innes signed a temporary restraining order of the law.
In August, Kevin Dunn did a 3-week speaking tour in Australia, speaking at events and rallies about stories related to filming The Euthanasia Deception and Fatal Flaws. Recently, we provided free copies and links of The Euthanasia Deception documentary to Australian politicians. Fatal Flaws has caused such a stir in Australia that the pro-euthanasia filmmaker, Andrew Denton, produced a 30-minute film responding to it.
The Compassionate Community Care (CCC) visiting program is offering a volunteer workshop and training session at Holy Trinity Parish Life Centre in Woodstock, ON (Canada) from 9:30 am to 3:00 pm on Saturday September 28. If you recognize the importance of being with people who are alone and lonely as they approach their final years, you should attend this event. The cost is only $20 plus a freewill offering for lunch. Register by Monday September 23: call 519-421-0029. Please make cheques out to Compassionate Community Care.

There have been several physicians who have joined the battle against euthanasia over the past few years. Dr. Mark Komrad, for instance, is a psychiatrist and ethicist who has written extensively on why psychiatrists should oppose euthanasia. Dr. Annette Hanson is a psychiatrist whose specialty is working with criminals who are unlikely to ever be released from prison. EPC is proud to be working with leaders in the medical community.
Shortly after the American Medical Association re-affirmed its opposition to assisted suicide, a few key physicians thanked EPC for our leadership and role in creating strong arguments against assisted suicide.
Canada has become a key reason for other jurisdictions to oppose euthanasia. The euthanasia mentality has quickly become ingrained within our culture. The Euthanasia Prevention Coalition provides our world-wide contacts with up-to-date Canadian stories and data.
I recently wrote articles about the propaganda campaigns by the euthanasia lobby, who are promoting the cultural acceptance of euthanasia. The euthanasia lobby use stories designed to change the law where it is not legal, and they use “good” euthanasia death stories to promote euthanasia where it is legal.
Last year I started running to get into shape. I began by struggling with short distances and slowly built up my strength and stamina. On October 6, I will be running in a 10 km race. Please sponsor me by making a donation to the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition. Your donation will encourage me and help prevent euthanasia.
In the next few months, I will be speaking in Campbell River and Victoria (BC, Canada), Edmonton and Calgary (AB, Canada), Port Elgin, Cornwall, Guelph and Ottawa (ON, Canada) as well as in Michigan and Delaware (USA), and Rome, Italy. Italy will be debating euthanasia later this year. I have also been asked to speak in India and Croatia but both engagements require us to pay the costs.
Thank you as always for your support. You are essential to our work; please consider becoming a monthly donor.
