What do you do when your husband has been approved for euthanasia and you are opposed to euthanasia? This is the situation that we faced last week when we received a call from a woman who needed help and advice after her husband had been approved for euthanasia. Due to privacy, I cannot provide more information, but the woman, who deeply loves and cares for her husband, was emotionally upset.
Today we received a call from a woman whose husband became quadriplegic from an accident and now the hospital is pressuring her family to remove his ventilator. We are able to help her defend his right to treatment.
Many people have questioned the purpose for EPC now that Bill C-14 is the law. We have stated on several occasions that our work is more important than ever and these recent phone calls confirm our purpose.
We are now, more than ever, focusing on providing a service to people who are facing subtle or overt pressure to die by euthanasia or people who have concerns about end-of-life decision making or to help people who are faced with euthanasia or assisted suicide decisions by family members or friends.
If you face a crisis situation concerning euthanasia, assisted suicide or ending of life concerns, we promise that we will help you through our Compassionate Community Care service at: 1-855-675-8749.
EPC is developing a new resistance campaign. We are working with people in the Netherlands, Belgium, USA and Australia to develop a world-wide campaign to share effective stories and research. This campaign is designed to resist the acceptance of euthanasia while providing jurisdictions with data to resist its legalization.
The Euthanasia Deception documentary is available for ordering in a Canadian or an International version. You can order the Euthanasia Deception documentary for $30.00 or we will send you the documentary for free if you agree to organize a screening event and ask participants to donate towards future video productions.
You can also contact myself (Alex Schadenberg) or Kevin Dunn (Euthanasia Deception producer) to speak at a screening of the documentary in your community. For more information contact us at: 1-877-439-3348.
EPC is in the middle of purchasing an office. We need people, who have the ability, to make a generous donation to this project. We continue to need you, our supporters, to become monthly donors. We fear that Canada Post will go on strike soon. If this happens, please donate by credit card by calling: 1-877-439-3348.
Thank you for your support. Protecting people from being killed has become more important than ever.
