Katie Buck from Iowa signed an online sympathy card connected to the Brittany Maynard website without knowing that her name would be used by Compassion and Choices, an assisted suicide lobby group, to lobby for the legalization of assisted suicide in her state.
Katie produced a video to explain what happened to her and to urge Americans to be aware of how the assisted suicide lobby launched a petition without choice. Katie's video: A Petition Without Choices.
The organization called Compassion and Choices used an online sympathy card to steal the names of people all over America to use for their petition to legalize assisted suicide. This video contains undercover proof linking the sympathy card and the petition.
****UPDATE**** Now that Brittany has passed away, the "sympathy card" has been replaced with a "condolences card" for her family. I have confirmed this "condolences card" will also get you on their petition. I have undercover proof of this as well. Stay tuned for more information!
Compassion and Choices is obviously not about choices.
