Euthanasia Movement Fears Religious Right

Topics: Euthanasia

Toronto hosted the annual euthanasia conference, "Challenge in Choice," Sept 7-10. Advocates of euthansia such as George Felos, attorney for Michael Schiavo, and Jon Eisenberg, attorney and author of the book, "Using Terri," spoke against the "religious right," especially the Catholic Church.

While speaking at the euthanasia conference George Felos bashes Christians for opposing euthanasia. According to LifeSite, Felos

"...excoriated the faithful Christians who opposed their efforts to have Michael's wife, Terri dehydrated to death. He told the conference that the Schiavo case was "highjacked" by the pro-life movement and the religious right."

LifeSite reported:

"Felos praised Canada as a more "progressive" country on Right to Die issues, and said that their cause has a better chance of succeeding here than in the US where Christians have more political sway."

The euthanasia advocates" views Christian opponents to euthanasia not simply as a group of people who have a differing point of view but as the enemy."

Bragging about Euthanasia

evariste at Discarded Lies comments about a recent admission of volunteers of the "right to die" group Compassion and Choices that they are actively helping their "clients" commit suicide, even in states where physician assisted suicide is illegal:

American euthanists were recently bragging to their foreign peers at an international conference that they do everything they can to kill people, short of breaking the law. I don't believe them. I think they go farther than that. I think they encourage, bait, bully, guilt, and very likely, snuff the candle.
