Canadian Parliament Begins Debate on Bill C-384 to Legalize Assisted Suicide

Ottawa, Canada (LifeNews.com) -- The Canadian Parliament last week began debate on Bill C-384 that would legalize assisted suicide in Canada. On October 2, the measure, received its first hour of debate after Québécois MP Francine Lalonde won a higher number in the lottery for private members bills.

Alex Schadenberg of the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition has been one of the leaders in trying to defeat the bill and he provided LifeNews.com an update today on the situation. Since May, when Lalonde introduced the legislation, "many groups and individuals have helped the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition defeat C-384 by sending Stop Bill C-384 postcards, writing hand-written letters, or meeting with their member of Parliament," he said. Parliament has received about 10,000 postcards thus far, he confirmed to LifeNews.com. "We now need to inundate MPs with letters opposing Bill C-384," he said. Full story at LifeNews.com
