Rally in Ottawa: solidarity as a cure

The Ottawa rally opposing euthanasia and assisted suicide, organized by the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition, the Physicians Alliance against Euthanasia and Living with Dignity took place as planned, yesterday, on Parliament Hill in Ottawa.

Hundreds of people had traveled to Ottawa, while a number of speakers took the stage both to denounce Bill C-14 and to reaffirm their opposition to euthanasia and assisted suicide.

All speakers (spokespersons of human rights organizations, MPs and members of the Senate) reminded the federal government of its obligation to protect all Canadian citizens, to provide them with adequate health care and to defend the value of every human life instead of spending the taxpayers' money to offer them a one-way ticket to death.
