Dear Editors of all news papers please place this letter addressed to The Honorable Prime Minister,MP’s and MPP’s to alert your readership of the impending laws that Health Care Givers will be forced to participate in against their conscious, against their beliefs, against their Charter of Rights and Freedoms. With a Call to action to all voters.
Dear Honorable Members of Government
I have sent letters in the past regarding Health Care and I have been following the debate and the pending laws being decided upon for Euthanasia in this country.
As Catholics you are aware that the Commandments this Country have been founded on; states that we Shall Not Kill.
I am a Catholic and an RPN practicing in the care giving of all kinds of patients.
I have spoken with and listened to Patients and Doctors and Anesthesiologists regarding this and feel that the information going out to the public is one sided. I have also attended talks by Dr. Margaret Somerville on this topic that she has researched for over 30 years and can be found online.
It is proven that if proper financing was put on living and assisted living, proper pain control measures were in place and funding for proper care-giving and supportive care. The stressors that contribute to a patient wanting to commit suicide would be very much reduced.
As written by Dr. Margaret Somerville of McGill University. Patients want to live. If pain and fear were properly addressed and patients weren’t feeling they were being a burden on family and their pain controlled; most patients would want to live. Also Mental Depression and Mental Health Issues need to be considered and proper care given. As well as age and maturity.
An Anesthesiologist at my plce of work confirmed to me that there is always a way to medicate for pain without killing; as did Dr. M.J. Randlett a local Palliative and Pain control Doctor of our Community.
I am asking you Honorable gentleman in your capacity to become very vocal for the rights of Canadians. And to protect all HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS to not be legislated to kill. Or for doctors not to be mandated to send to a doctor that will. This act is against our Faith and With the Charter of Rights and Freedoms as Canadians this needs to be addressed Now.
Please take the time to read and speak with Dr. Margaret Somerville a McGill University professor; and read her studies that have been done for over 30 years on this same course in the Netherlands. Extermination is more the course there now after 30 years. Even those not given the chance to refuse death. Mentally challenged, Dementia and Alzheimer patients.
This law needs to have many checks and balances put into place. A Carte Blanche for the availability of doctor assisted suicide and assessments will show that many who believe they need to have this will be reduced 95% if proper funding is in place to help families, caregivers of those afflicted with diseases that can be managed. More funding also is needed for Palliative and Hospice care. And development of medical interventions and research. Where humane care is uppermost important.
To re-allocate funding from Abortion Clinics where the mother is not given the Full disclosure of what this will do to her health; or from all the thousands of programs costing Canadians Millions if not Billions for the purpose of pushing the French language issues across this country. This would give more funding to give people the care they need while living out theirs lives. Funding that the elderly have bought and paid for.
Even before this law there are many fighting to live out their lives their way with treatment but are not aloud to do so due to the lack of funding in healthcare at home for the dying or even in hospital.
Honorable Members of Government please allow all members of the caucus to vote their conscious and Mr. McDonnell please use the Not Withstanding Clause to stop this act of barbarism for our area for this impending law.
Please fight the good fight and protect life! You are all in a position to do so please take strength as Daniel did when he fought the Giant. For this fight needs to be won now. Once in place there will a very difficult time changing it. Look at the Abortion laws. Oh yeah! There are none! But that is for another letter!
