Top blog articles on euthanasia and assisted suicide published over the past 5 years.

This blog has now been online for more than 5 years.

When I started the blog I did not know the impact or importance that the blog would have and I did not know how to maintain and operate the blog. 

The first blog article published was: The Euthanasia Prevention Coalition response to the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Manitoba Statement on Withholding and Withdrawing Life-Sustaining Treatment (March 18, 2008). This blog article received a significant number of hits which confirmed that we should continue.

The blog should be the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition blog, but since the blog began as an experiment it was named after myself

At first we did not publish regular comments/articles. 

Barbara Wagner
On June 8, 2008 we published a blog article concerning the story of Barbara Wagner in Oregon that received an incredible number of hits. The article was titled: Woman in Oregon offered assisted suicide instead of medical treatment.

On October 8, 2008 we published the article titled: Depression and Physician-assisted suicide analyzing the study by Linda Ganzini concerning the "supposed safeguard" designed to protect depressed people in Oregon from assisted suicide. This article brought the blog to a new level of reader response.

Many of the blog articles have received significant national and international attention. The following is a list of the top 10 articles published on this blog since its inception in order of the number of hits.

1. Physician-Assisted Suicide: A Recipe for Elder Abuse and the Illusion of Personal Choice that is written by attorney Margaret Dore February 17, 2011.

5. Declaration of Hope January 17, 2013.

The next list represents some of the more recent articles that are not among the top 10 blog articles because they are new and still being regularly read. I expect that one or more of these articles will soon enter the top 10 list.

The Euthanasia Prevention Coalition is having significant success distributing the book: Exposing Vulnerable People to Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide written by myself. 

Exposing Vulnerable People uncovers the data proving that the unreported euthanasia deaths and the abuse of the euthanasia laws in Belgium and the Netherlands, not only occurs but represents a documented threat to vulnerable patients.  

Order Exposing Vulnerable People for $20.00 at: Exposing Vulnerable People to Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide. Link.

Thank you to the many people who regularly read the blog and provided feedback. I hope that the blog will continue to provide the information that people need to protect people from euthanasia and assisted suicide.

Thank you Alex, may God bless you for your work in helping others to understand the dangers involved and how they can be abused as well.

I'm hoping you'll change your name to the Compassion Prevention Coalition, but I certainly don't expect it.

Alex Schadenberg said...

Winston: Your false compassion will lead to the deaths of many.

Your philosophy is dangerous for people who are depressed, people with disabilities, people with chronic conditions, and people who are dependent on others.

Winston said...

You don't even know what the word compassion means, Alex. Suffering with someone is one of the most callous acts you can do to someone.

It's a defeatist attitude that would leave us in the Stone Age of analgesics.
