The Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care is offering a webinar on euthanasia for seniors.

The Australian Department of Heath and Aged Care website, offers a webinar titled: Voluntary assisted dying - what you need to know on July 21, 2023. The promotion states:
Join Swinburne’s Wellbeing Clinic for Older Adults for a free webinar on ageing on Friday 21 July at 4.45‑6pm AEST.

This webinar is for people employed in aged care, as well as psychologists, social workers, counsellors and volunteers who work with older adults.

Kristen Kappel is a clinical psychologist who has worked in a variety of health care settings over the past 23 years. Kristen will provide information about the eligibility for, and process involved in, voluntary assisted dying (VAD). This webinar will enable mental health professionals to respond appropriately and within legislative requirements when the topic of VAD is raised in clinical practice.

The Fraser Healthcare Authority in British Columbi, Canada is sending a slideshow promoting euthanasia to pensioners. Will Potter reported for the Daily Mail on July 1 that the slideshow was sent to people in the Fraser Health region as part of a pension package.

Australia kills everyone they consider in the way, including foxes, kangaroos, dingos, and now, human senior citizens.

This is very disturbing and abhorrent ! I thought it was illegal to raise the topic of MAiD unless a patient raises it first. Where are the people who are supposed to protect the elderly ?
