On February 6, the Supreme Court of Canada threw out the Criminal Code prohibition on euthanasia and doctor-assisted suicide. Alex Schadenberg, executive director of the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition, says his organization wants the Canadian government to invoke the notwithstanding clause and urges citizens to contact their MPs to request they stand up for vulnerable Canadians. He includes a list of talking points:

These talking points should also be used in our conversations with friends, family, and colleagues. They can be utilized in letters to the editor or when calling talk-radio shows. We need to get the message out that the disabled, elderly, and sick deserve compassion, not death, and that so-called safeguards do not protect individuals in difficult circumstances.
