Second-International Symposium on Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide

In the past several months we have witnessed the passing of the Washington State I-1000 assisted suicide Initiative making assisted suicide legal in that state. We were shocked when Judge Dorothy McCarter legalized assisted suicide in the state of Montana by judicial fiat. We experienced victory in Hawaii when the state legislature decided not to support an assisted suicide bill, but we have yet to defeat bills to legalize assisted suicide in New Hampshire, New Mexico and Massachussets. Canada will soon be facing another bill to legalize euthanasia and assisted suicide and in the UK Lord Joffe may also introduce another bill to legalize assisted suicide.

You need to attend the Second-International Symposium on Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide.

Be part of the Strategy and learn how to stop the euthanasia lobby in America and world-wide.

The Second-International Symposium is designed to build an effective, unified and focused group of organizations and individuals to stop the euthanasia death lobby.
The Second-International Symposium is May 29 - 30, 2009 at the National Conference Center - 18980 Upper Belmont Pl. Landsdowne Virginia 20176, near the Washington DC - Dulles Airport.
* We have acquired a Meeting ID with United Airlines that offers a flight discounts for all the participants. The Meeting ID is: 585JQ. You can contact United Airlines directly or you can book with Conlin Travel (1-800-783-9559) who are friendly to our work and helping us with flight bookings. You simply need to quote the United Airlines Meeting ID when booking the flight.

We have already had several requests for subsidy.
In order to operate the Symposium at a breakeven financial basis we are seeking groups and individuals who are willing to advertise in the Symposium booklet. Supporters will be acknowledged in the Symposium booklet based on the level of support. Supporter levels are Gold supporter - $500, Silver supporter - $250, Bronze supporter - $100.
