The Hippocratic Oath reads in part, ” I will give no deadly medicine to any one if asked, nor suggest any such counsel.” But Canadian death doctors and nurse practitioners who euthanize the sick, disabled, and mentally ill–soon perhaps, also those with Alzheimer’s–are actively embracing the very lethal act Hippocratic doctors forswore for the protection of vulnerable patients.
How “in” to euthanasia are they? They have formed an association of euthanasia providers–killers, because that is what euthanasia is, killing–called CAMAP, the Canadian Association of MAiD Assessors and Providers. (MAiD stands for “medical assistance in dying.”)
While we are predominantly an association of physicians and nurse practitioners, anyone interested in supporting this work is most welcome to join our community and become an associate CAMAP member.
This includes nurses, pharmacists, speech & language specialists, administrators, law makers, lawyers, social workers, activists, counsellors and more. Already underway are plans for a National Conference on MAiD in June 2017 in beautiful Victoria, BC, development of an advisory board, plans for a mentorship program and a newsletter with cross-country information and case reviews.
Membership provides you with a reduced rate for registration at our conferences, access to our newsletter, general MAiD news updates, case reviews and an opportunity to join with a passionate and compassionate group of physicians and nurse practitioners doing this vital work.
Let’s be clear: “This work,” is lethally injecting sick people.
We live in very dark times.
