A young patient with brain cancer moved from California to Oregon to take advantage of the state’s PAS law (physician assisted suicide).
AGGRESSIVE AD CAMPAIGN: NOW IT BEGINS
After gathering information I conclude that this is an aggressive ad campaign by the Hemlock Society, aka Compassion & Choices. So far I have seen their slick video ON THE NEWS twice, yesterday and today. As the video plays one can see clearly the C&C logo.
The Sacramento local news is asking for viewer opinions!
A brief Internet search indicates C&C’s top notch PUBLIC RELATIONS dept. — headed by former Planned Parenthood public policy director — is on a roll.
The story has made a media feeding frenzy: New York Times, People Magazine, CNN, and local news.
In fact, the C&C website has gotten so many hits it keeps crashing.
The poor suffering cancer patient is now the namesake of an unethical campaign, THE BRITTANY MAYNARD FUND, “an initiative of C&C to expand the death-with-dignity option to all.“
During the last days of her life, Maynard plans to raise awareness of end-of-life rights by working with life-rights advocacy organization Compassion & Choices and The Brittany Maynard Fund. Fox News.
ARE THEY TELLING THE WHOLE STORY ABOUT BRITTANY?
There are questions that need answering: Where are photos of her as a sick person? All the photos shows a healthy woman. Is she really sick? Are we expected to just take this on face value?
