Caring Not Killing Postcard Campaign



The Euthanasia Prevention Coalition (EPC) has launched a postcard campaign to Members of Parliament under the theme: I support Caring Not Killing.

The postcard campaign urges members of parliament to reject euthanasia and assisted suicide for people with dementia and minors, people with psychiatric conditions and to protect the conscience rights of medical professionals.

EPC is distributing three different bilingual postcards that you can send to Prime Minister Trudeau, Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould, Health Minister Jane Philipott, or your Member of Parliament (MP).

Link to the list of members of parliament.


Order the postcards by contacting EPC at: 1-877-439-3348 or email: info@epcc.ca and tell us how many postcards you want and where we need to send them. EPC is distributing the postcards for free, but we ask you to consider making a donation to the cost of the campaign.

On the one side of the card, write your name, address, Postal Code and Signature. On the other side of the card and write the name of the political leader or your member of parliament.

It is free to mail the postcards to federal politicians.

The three different bilingual messages state:

1. I support Caring Not Killing.
The government must reject the legalization of euthanasia for psychiatric conditions.

J’appuie les bons soins, pas le meurtre.
Le gouvernement doit rejeter la légalisation de l’euthanasie dans les cas de maladie mentale.

2. I support Caring Not Killing.
The government must reject the legalization of euthanasia for people with dementia and minors.

J’appuie les bons soins, pas le meurtre.
Le gouvernement doit rejeter les injections létales pour les personnes démentes et les mineurs.

3. I support Caring Not Killing.
The government must protect conscience rights for medical professionals. My doctor must not be forced to refer for assisted death.

J’appuie les bons soins, pas le meurtre.
Le gouvernement doit protéger la liberté de conscience des professionnels de la santé. Mon médecin ne doit pas être forcé à référer pour une aide médicale à mourir.

It is better to send letters to your member of parliament. The list of members of parliament.

I plan to write letters to my MP, ministers Philpott and Wilson-Raybould, and PM Trudeau, based on a combination of the messages on the three postcards being produced by EPCC. Excellent campaign.

Even after psychological analysis, there can still be a multiplicity of other elements, which contribute towards a person's current mental condition, and therefore no analysis, psychological or otherwise, can absolutely determine, with one-hundred percent accuracy, the actual complete state of, and reasons for, any individual's mental condition.

Great campaign!

Thanks,

Philip.

I have written my MP Jati Sidhu (Mission- Matsqui- Fraser Canyon) and plan to be in front of his office peacefully demonstrating rejection of Bill C 14 on April 27th noon to 1 that would legalize two medical professionals the right to kill a patient 'close to death'.
