  10. Now that euthanasia/assisted suicide is legal in Canada, doctors in Ontario are being forced to help arrange for the killing of their patients. If your family doctor or surgeon objects to providing a referral for assisted suicide/euthanasia, they could be fined, disciplined or even removed from their practice. Many may be forced to retire or move outside of the province if the provincial government does not recognize their freedom of conscience. Please visit www.CanadiansforConscience.ca to learn more, join the “Call for Conscience” and write directly to your Member of Provincial Parliament asking them to protect conscience rights.

We have a prepared letter which only needs your signature and email. Please take a copy from the back of Church. Thank you.
