Calls to Action on Bill C-7: Euthanasia

The House of Commons is debating amendments to Bill C-7. As we mentioned in our call to action earlier this week, this is our last opportunity to call on Parliament to kill this bill. The Senate made several amendments to the legislation adding provisions for those with mental illness and for advanced care directives making this bill much more dangerous and concerning than it already was.

MPs have been mentioning that they received hundreds of emails and phone calls from concerned citizens about Bill C-7. We need to keep up the pressure. Thanks to your messages, the Conservatives and NDP have been standing and speaking in opposition particularly as it relates to those with disabilities and mental health issues.

We’re asking you to pray that God will restrain the hearts of men and that they may vote to care for our neighbours through palliative care and suicide prevention rather than vote to enable our neighbours to commit assisted suicide.

We're also asking you to reach out to your MP to tell them that you oppose the removal of safeguards and the expansion of eligibility. This is especially important if you know or suspect that your MP is supportive of assisted suicide.
