The moral objections to euthanasia are obvious -- no one has the right to deliberately end innocent human life. But the practical worries are pretty persuasive too.
Euthanasia, assisted suicide, death with dignity . . . call it what you will, “The so-called ‘right to die’ often becomes a ‘duty to die,’” Michele Boulva of the Canadian bishops office of life and family told Canadian Catholic News Ottawa bureau chief Deborah Gyapong. See her full article here.
That's why the bishops are urging Catholics to prepare for the upcoming battle against euthanasia and assisted-suicide.
For the third time, Bloc Quebecois MP Francine Lalonde has introduced a private member’s bill that would amend the Criminal Code to make assisted-suicide and euthanasia legal in Canada. The bill could be dealt with as soon as this fall.
Please use the summer break, when MPs are in their ridings, to express your concern about Bill C-384.
