COLF reaction to Bill C-14

New act intends to legalize euthanasia in Criminal Code
The federal government introduced Bill C-14 April 14, 2016.  
With the federal government introducing an act to allow medical assistance in death, Catholic organizations are outraged. The Catholic Organization for Life and Family, an organization co-founded by the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops and the Knights of Columbus, said:
"Legal does not mean moral. The opinion of the majority has no power to determine what is good; an evil remains evil. This proposed legislation makes legal a moral wrong. By giving us the Ten Commandments, God has been very clear: 'Thou shalt not kill.'"
The act was introduced April 14, 2016. The draft states that it will not be necessary to be at the end of life in order to have a right to this "care".

The organization encourages individuals to contact their MPs through the Coalition for HealthCARE and Conscience in opposition to assisted suicide and euthanasia, as well as to support increased access to palliative care.
