Vivre dans la Dignité - Living with Dignity

A new grassroots movement has been formed in Quebec to take action against the legalization of Euthanasia.

The Government of Quebec appear to have established the Dying with Dignity committee to examine options related to turning a blind eye to acts of euthanasia and assisted suicide in Quebec.

The Euthanasia Prevention Coalition is celebrating the launch of Vivre dans la Dignité a group who are completely focused on activating a grassroots movement who oppose the legalization of euthanasia in Quebec.

Director, Linda Couture stated:
"Euthanasia and assisted suicide are killing, plain and simple. We cannot allow killing to be confused with health care in Quebec. The provincial government must direct its efforts and resources to offering Quebecers the best possible end of life care, including ready access to palliative care, rather than encouraging euthanasia and assisted suicide just to save money."
Dr. André Bourque, the president of the group stated:
"Living with Dignity is aware the hearings may be a public diversion to rubber stamp a decision the Charest government has already made to permit euthanasia and assisted suicide in Quebec hospitals.

The Charest Liberals could effectively legalize both forms of medical killing by directing Crown prosecutors not to lay charges against doctors who extinguish the lives of the terminally ill, elderly or profoundly disabled."
