Rome Press Conference - June 6, 2017
Euthanasia Prevention Coalition - VP, Kristina Hodgetts, was featured at a press conference today in Rome speaking out against the "living will" bill “Testamenti Biologici” (“Biological Wills”), that is being debated in the Italian Senate. 

The Italian legislation must be defeated or amended because it permits medical professionals to dehydrate people, who are not otherwise dying, to death. 

Kristina Hodgetts explains in the youtube video of Kristina Hodgetts, based on her personal experience as a nurse in Canada, why it is wrong to permit the dehydration of people, who are not otherwise dying.

Permitting medical professionals to cause death, by dehydration cannot be controlled. Most of the people who die by dehydration are incompetent to make decisions for themselves and circumstances will lead to abuse of the law

Allowing medical professionals to dehydrate people to death, who are not otherwise dying, (euthanasia by dehydration) will lead to active euthanasia. Killing someone by lethal injection is far more "compassionate" than killing someone by dehydration, which is a horrific death.
