End of Life Issues

Canada is making suicide a public service. Have we lost our way as a society?

In February 2015 the Supreme Court of Canada overturned its ban on doctor-assisted suicide. Federal and provincial governments were given 12 months to frame legislation in response to the court. Following the election of the Liberal party, a four month extension was granted the federal and provincial governments to craft new laws if they choose to do so. June is not far away. Here is the National Post's political commentator, Andrew Coyne, with an analysis of this end of life discussion.

Response to the Supreme Court of Canada decision removing legal prohibitions on euthanasia and assisted suicide (February 6, 2015)

February 7, 2015

The Anglican Communion Alliance strongly affirms the position on euthanasia and physician assisted suicide so thoughtfully and powerfully worded by Diocesan Bishop,The Rt. Rev. Charlie Masters, of ANiC. Please read it carefully and consider what action you might take to register your opposition to this development. Let each of us join in prayer for our political leaders, not all of whom support this ruling, and let them know where we stand on this important matter.
