Euthanasia & Assisted Suicide
More Info


Current Concern: Conscience
An ethicist at Queen’s University wrote in September 2016 that doctors should not have the right to conscientious objection, as reported in the National Post.

The Ontario government is supporting policies that require doctors to participate in procedures against their deeply-held beliefs. Long-term care facilities and seniors’ residences may be required to allow euthanasia and assisted suicide on their premises.

The EFC has created a sample letter you can use to write or call your MPP and the Ontario Minister of Health on these issues of conscience protection.

The EFC is also seeking to intervene in a court challenge of an Ontario policy that requires doctors to provide a referral against their conscientious objection.
