Wisconsin Right to Life - Eau Claire Chapter
Our Chapter meets the 2nd Tuesday of even numbered months at 7:30 pm in Room 3 (LL3) in the basement of Sacred Heart Hospital, across the hallway from the entrance to the cafeteria.
The UWEC Students for Life and our Chapter are cosponsoring a free showing of the film, The Euthanasia Deception, on Tuesday, October 17th at 7:00 pm in the Woodland Theater at the UWEC Davies Center.
The theater is in room 328 on the third floor. Refreshments will be served after the film. Free parking will be available in the lot behind the Davies Center.
This one hour documentary shows how 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 features 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.
Testimonies include: Prof. Tom Mortier, whose depressed mother was euthanized without his knowledge; Hendrick, whose grandfather’s death was ‘hastened’ without request - years before his time; “James”, who regrets family pressure to euthanize his mother; Lionel, who is routinely asked by Belgian strangers why he will not euthanize his severely disabled daughter; Mark, an MS survivor, grateful there was no law allowing him to kill himself when he was diagnosed; and Kristina, a nurse who shares her remorseful experience with assisted death.
With expert analysis from both medical and legal professions, the film reveals the serious, long-term implications of assisted dying laws, and proves that all of us become vulnerable when end-of-life care is handed over to lawmakers.
