TV Ontario promotes assisted suicide

By Alex Schadenberg, Executive Director, Euthanasia Prevention Coalition

The Ontario government funded public broadcast TV network, TV Ontario, has scheduled to air the documentary Gloria and Me, on July 29, a documentary that promotes the story of Gloria Taylor, the woman whose case led to the dangerous and irresponsible Supreme Court decision that struck down Canada's laws protecting people from euthanasia and assisted suicide.

EPC does not oppose TV Ontario airing "Gloria and Me" but rather we oppose the one-sided promotion of assisted suicide by the media, including TV Ontario, a TV network that is primarily funded by the Ontario government.

Send emails or phone TV Ontario (link) expressing your opposition to airing a one-sided documentary without airing a program providing fair and informed knowledge on the issue.

Euthanasia and assisted suicide are issues of life and death. It is in the public interest to always air all sides of this issue.
