Aggressive Publicity for Medical Suicide by Hemlock Society – Brittany Maynard

From the “Wish We Had A Movie Star Spokesperson” department…

Dear Readers,

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.

CAMPAIGN TO EXPAND EUTHANASIA

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?
