Attention: Honourable Jacques Chagnon
This morning I called your local-office, and I do hope to receive a call-back if possible.
What concerns me, and should concern every Quebecer and Canadian is that, euthanasia laws anywhere have never protected anyone from involuntary murder.
Everywhere the Right to Die movement has campaigned in thirty years, their propaganda has always boasted of their "safeguards against the slippery-slope of euthanasia". They love people to believe it is only for those who want to die, legally.
As soon as the killing-machine is working to please those who solicited and campaigned for their own death-laws, doctors go after people they believe would not want to live with disabilities. They don’t know; they only presume, and kill them off.
While they are campaigning to legalize euthanasia in the UK, on average, 130,000 people are dying in the LCP (Liverpool Care Pathway). All they have to do is dress-it-up in a nice name, as Quebec has. Quebec has called it "Dying With Dignity".
Although some nice people are attracted to the Right to Die Societies, some of them after witnessing a difficult death in their family, most are attracted by the fears advertised in their campaigns and television shows. I have witnessed many people die around me, since 2000, because I live at the Montreal-Chest Institute/Thoracic long-term care-unit. There are some good nurses and assisstants in hospitals and other long-term care institutions, but they are few.
As a result, patients and staffers can have verbal conflicts. Alot of workers don’t like having to be nurse-assistants, after losing jobs they much preferred unrelated to health-care. Everywhere is the same, after their laws got passed. It is not long, until the involuntary killings increase in number. They are never prosecuted, because the families cannot afford months and years of court-costs.
Although I am a patient, I also am involved with bioethics and civil-rights. I will await your call.
