Both the more serious smear attempt and this one prove to me the effectiveness of the HOPE network.
My reply to the editor was not published. Shared here for your enjoyment:
I am grateful to Frances Coombe for mentioning the network HOPE: Preventing Euthanasia & Assisted Suicide in her letter to the Advertiser (26 Nov) and the role we played in the recent euthanasia debate.
It seems to me to be sour grapes indeed that she should feel it necessary to try to draw our network into some sort of grand right wing conspiracy when it is painfully obvious that we simply have more friends than SAVES does.
