Hear from Our Doctors
Doctors and other healthcare practitioners are now in an impossible position. They could be forced to compromise their conscience. For many, the oath to “First, do no harm” is paramount.
We asked physicians who our coalition represents to talk about conscience and physician-assisted suicide.
Are you a physician or other medical practitioner who objects to physician-assisted suicide? Contact us at email@example.com and we’ll help share your story.
We need your help to protect Ontario doctors and their conscience rights.
Bill 84 has passed the legislature without any conscience protections. The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO) still requires effective referral. This is unacceptable to those who conscientiously object to physician-assisted suicide. Bill 129, a private member's bill, is being introduced in the legislature May 18, 2017. This bill deals with conscience protection and assisted suicide and it would make participation in assisted suicide voluntary for doctors, nurses and other health professionals. Please write to your MPP using the from below to ask them to support this bill.
