Canadian Pro-Deather Under Fire

This is an excellent piece by my colleague and friend Alex Schadenberg exposing a prominent Canadian pro-deather.
Jocelyn Downie is planning to spin the truth about euthanasia at McGill University
An article written by Olivia D’Orazio and published in the Canadian Lawyer Magazine on December 29, 2010; explains that Jocelyn Downie will once again be spinning her false arguments concerning the legalization of euthanasia and assisted suicide in Canada.
Downie, a long-time advocate for the legalization of euthanasia, who published the book: Dying Justice: A Case for Decriminalizing Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide in Canada and who has been working with a one-sided committee on behalf of the Royal Society of Canada to produce a document that will promote the legalization of euthanasia and assisted suicide, will be speaking on January 13, 2011 at McGill University.
Downie is quoted as stating in the article:
“My ideal [situation] would be that it, euthanasia and assisted suicide, be taken out of the Criminal Code and be handled through a commission that oversees what’s going on and sets out very clear standards under which euthanasia or assisted suicide can be practised.” more
