Letter to the Editor:

Since I had to move into a long-term care unit of the MUHC in Montreal in 2000, I have witnessed a scary change in the thinking pattern of  many nurses and their assistants. When I read how the senate-committee on euthanasia turned what was supposed to be a two month provincial project into two years of rants, because they could not accept the level of resistance to legalizing euthanasia/assisted-suicide, there is serious concern about their hidden agenda.

I appreciate the EPC for not turning a blind-eye to any of the details, because too many “(s)care-givers” who before 2000 were fully opposed to such a law being passed, have been sedated by the rhetorical pounding of the drums. Many hospital workers are so busy with their jobs, that they merely go with the flow, and now presume that if the “Right(?) to Die” movement says it is good for them, it must be.

When I ask workers if patients here “die with dignity”, without a law, it sort of wakes them up a little.–The “Law” is unnecessary, and is the problem in the Netherlands. Despite the resistance to the Law they want in Quebec and Canada, they lie to Canadians constantly in declaring that the “safeguards” work very well in the Netherlands and Oregon.–They have the nerve to say that, when they are fully aware of the statistics.


About Ironsides

I was born in 1951 with Arthrogryposis, developed scoliosis at ten years old, but travelled alot and worked in several countries with a religious cult. All my adult life I have had to live with others, and after three respiratory-failures I had to move into a long-term care institution.
