Not Dead Yet Toolkit

Not Dead Yet has a well developed toolkit on their website for opposing assisted suicide. Click below for the link.

 

Belgium’s 15 year experiment with euthanasia has gone terribly wrong.


This film is a dire warning for the rest of the world.  The Euthanasia Deception is a one-hour documentary featuring powerful testimonies from Belgium and beyond - of those devastated by the false ideology of ‘mercy killing’.
 
The film sets out to expose three main deceptions of doctor assisted dying: First, that euthanasia and assisted suicide are a form of compassion. The second is the myth of autonomy: that decisions made between doctor and patient operate in a vacuum. And finally, that government ‘safeguards’ can truly protect the vulnerable.

The Euthanasia Deception documentary is now available for purchase.

Assisted Suicide: The Musical

In a new musical, a disability rights activist tackles assisted suicide in Assisted Suicide the Musical.”

Courtesy of Unity Theatre Liverpool.London, England, Nov 27, 2016 / 03:48 pm (CNA).- Physician-assisted suicide has been a subject of controversy for several years, but Liz Carr is taking the issue somewhere it has never been before: the musical theatre.

Carr, a disabilities activist, comedian and actress, created a production entitled Assisted Suicide: the Musical, which has been staged at various English theatres this month. The musical is aimed at drawing critical attention to the downfalls of physician-assisted suicide, particularly its effect on marginalizing the disabled.
