Monsieur le Premier ministre,
Monsieur le Président du Conseil régional, my dear friend Jean-Paul,
Mesdames et Messieurs les Ministres,
Mesdames et Messieurs les Députés,
Dear friends from abroad,
Mesdames et Messieurs responsables de l’ ADMD,
My dear friends,
I hope Dr Chaussoy, who is here this morning will forgive me for quoting this admirable phrase from his book:” Just as we need a midwife to bring a human being into the world, we need helpers, wise women and men to be there and to help him/her leave it peacefully.”
Yesterday at the Conseil Régional d’Ile de France ,which I am proud to belong to, and also at the Porte de Bagnolet I could greet each one of you with warmth and with respect for the work which each of you ,in his/her own way does to serve the same cause: the conquest of our final freedom.
After the friendly get-together, here comes the time for working and reflecting, the moment to try to advance all together to help all those who in our respective countries expect the government authorities to grant us the freedom to choose the conditions and the time to end our lives, as already possible in the state of Oregon, in Belgium, in the Netherlands, and as it will soon also be possible in Luxemburg and in the near future in Spain.
