Ireland is establishing a committee to examine euthanasia.

Alex Schadenberg
Executive Director, Euthanasia Prevention Coalition

In July 2021, an Irish euthanasia bill passed in the Irish Dáil ant then stopped by the Oireachtas Committee on Justice based on the language of the bill. The bill was sponsored by People before Profit TD Gino Kenny.

The Journal reported on July 15
that a special Oireachtas Committee will likely begin in October to examine the issue of euthanasia.

The Journal reported that:
The Oireachtas Justice Committee recommended the formation of a special committee on the issue earlier this year, after finding that the proposed legislation had “serious technical issues” and warranted more detailed examination.
The Euthanasia Prevention Coalition urges the Oireachtas Justice Committee to analyze the Canadian experience and then reject euthanasia. Legalizing euthanasia abandons people to death at a vulnerable time of their life.

Ireland has lost the reason for life along with their soul. A government that reflects a communist dictatorship and a 'throw in the towel' attitude from the people who have become complacent. The reason why I sold my beautiful little house there in 2016 bears fruit. The "dark cloud" I sensed then truly hangs over Ireland. Lord have mercy on the once great island of Saints and Scholars.
