I know most readers of this blog are American, yet this post is geared toward a Canadian audience because of the gravity of recent developments in Canada. American readers please view these developments as a warning about the darker side of human nature and corruption of democracy and free thought.
Yesterday morning I received a startling but not unexpected email from Canada's Euthanasia Prevention Coalition. In part, it read:
"This morning the Québec government re-introduced its euthanasia
bill in the identical form as Bill 52 before the Québec election. The Québec Premier forced the Liberal members to support the introduction of the euthanasia bill. Since there was no opposition to the re-introduction of the bill, it has returned to the stage it was at before the election (second reading stage).
behavior of forcing its members to support this action is not unique nor democratic nor does it acknowledge personal conscience. This past February the federal Liberal Party -- counterpart of the provincial Liberals -- adopted a resolution to decriminalize assisted suicide if re-elected to Parliament.
Regarding the Québec euthanasia bill write to your MPs (CC: the Prime Minister and Minister of Justice) demanding a federal appeal against this assault on the sanctity of human life. Write letters to the editor of newspapers, make blog and twitter protests about Québec's euthanasia bill. Expose the federal Liberal resolution to strike down Canada's law against assisted suicide.
Protest Trudeau's announcement that all Liberal candidates must be pro-choice to kill unwanted or inconvenient unborn children. Now their provincial counterparts are about to attack the sick and disabled!
