Assisted Suicide and Euthanasia

Below is information about the assisted suicide bills and such. Please take a moment to raed to see what you can do...

In the past several months we have witnessed the passing and now implementation of the Washington State I-1000 assisted suicide Initiative making assisted suicide legal in that state. We were shocked when Judge Dorothy McCarter legalized assisted suicide in the state of Montana by judicial fiat.

Luxembourg just passed a bill that legalized euthanasia that was delayed by Grand Duke Henri who refused to sign the bill into law forcing the Luxembourg government to amend their constitution to remove the historical power of the monarch to sign legislation into law. To thank Grand Duke Henri of Luxembourg:

We experienced temporary victories in many states including New Hampshire and Hawaii.

There are currently bills to legalize assisted suicide in Scotland, with an upcoming bill in Canada.

You need to attend the Second-International Symposium on Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide.
