Euthanasia Prevention Coalition (EPC) International selects new leadership team.

The Euthanasia Prevention Coalition (EPC) International had a successful meeting today in Rome. We discussed the current situation related to Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide in countries throughout the world. We discussed important research that has been done, is being done and needs to be done. We discussed resources and how to share resources, and we discussed our common directions. We also discussed the location and organizing team for the Fourth International Symposium on Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide.

The new leadership team for (EPC) International is:
Chair: Alex Schadenberg, EPC Canada; Vice Chair: Paul Russell, HOPE Australia; Dr. Peter Saunders, Care Not Killing UK; Nancy Elliott, United States; Henk Reitsma, Netherlands; Kevin Fitzpatrick, Ireland / France; Caroline Roux, France; Dr David Richmond, Euthanasia Debate New Zealand; Carlos Alvarez, Spain. David Richmond is the only leader who was not at the meeting.

What is the relationship of EPC International to the Anti-Euthanasia Task Force (Rita Marker et al)?

I think Rita Marker's book "Deadly Compassion" should be mandatory reading for all.

For Life,

Rita Marker's group changed their name to the Patients Rights Council. They are a different organization but share the same goals.
