The Life-Protecting Power of Attorney for Personal Care will Protect you from euthanasia.

Alex Schadenberg
Executive Director - Euthanasia Prevention Coalition

Recently, while speaking, someone asked me:
"Will a Power of Attorney for Personal Care document protect me from euthanasia when I can't speak for myself?"
I stated that EPC updated the Life Protecting Power of Attorney for Personal Care after euthanasia and assisted suicide was legalized in Canada and it will protect your life.

I stated $10 is a cheap investment to protect your life.

EPC sells the Life Protecting Power of Attorney for Personal Care for $10 + taxes.

Order the Life Protecting Power of Attorney (Information Linkat: 1-877-439-3348 or info@epcc.ca

The Life Protecting Power of Attorney for Personal Care ensures that your power of attorney will have the ability to uphold your values, it clearly protects you from euthanasia and assisted suicide and it defines the treatment decisions that you would want, in the event that you are unable to make decisions for yourself.

The Life Protecting Power of Attorney also gives you the piece of mind that the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition will help you if your expressed wishes are ignored or if a hospital or doctor pressures to impose decisions upon you.

EPC also works with Compassionate Community Care (CCC) to offer practical advice and support when you or a loved one is faced with difficult medical care decisions, or if you are concerned that a friend or a loved one is being denied basic care or has died by euthanasia.

CCC is a Registered Canadian Charity. Donations to CCC are tax deductible. 

Contact CCC at: 1-855-675-8749.

Does this only apply to Canada or is it also valid in the US?

Thanks much,

This is a Canadian document, but the language of the document can be used in the US. Every State and Province have different rules or laws, even though most of them are similar.

Do you know if there is a document similar to this is the UK?

Do children need this as well then? Or only adults?

In most jurisdictions, the parents are the power of attorney for the child. Nonetheless, it is a good idea to have a Power of Attorney for Personal Care for "mature minors" because the law enables them to make medical decisions.

Good deal! I am not living in Canada at the moment but the way the world is going, I think this would be good to have. Will have to check into the law here to see if something like this would be honored in a certified translation. Thank you for making this available and I will let people know about it as I am able to.
