euthanasia 2A longtime opponent of euthanasia warns that America must wake up to the non-stop push for the practice and actively oppose it.  

Recently the World Medical Association dropped consideration of a proposal to change a current policy and support doctors helping patients kill themselves.

Canadian and Dutch supporters, who were supporting the change, resigned over a non-related issue.

Rita Marker, attorney and executive director of the Patients Rights Counsel, cautions that's not the end of the matter.

Marker, Rita (Patents Rights Council)"We have to be really clear: Those who are promoting doctor-prescribed suicide and euthanasia by lethal injection are not going to be through, ever," she tells OneNewsNow. "This is going to be ongoing and ongoing and ongoing."

Marker and her organization report that 270 pro-euthanasia bills have been introduced in state legislatures since Oregon led the country with a 1997 law. Its supporters, she says, won't quit.

"We have to help people know about it, and we have to help people get involved so that they can help others be aware of this," she advises. "So that it won't just slip by because those who are promoting it are working continuously."
