Canadian Euthanasia Debate
Bill C-384, a private members bill introduced into the Canadian Parliament is coming up for a vote on November 18th. Advocates of the pro-euthanasia camp are starting to ramp up the publicity in advance of this vote. Here are some examples. The Australian assisted suicide activist Philip Nitschke will be speaking at a Unitarian Church in Vancouver. Nitschke was denied use of a public library in Vancouver a few weeks ago. Nitschke is known for his role in developing the "Peaceful Pill" and his promotion of going to Mexico to purchase a veterinary euthanasia pill.
