In Quebec, a new law will soon authorize “medical aid in dying,” allowing doctors to kill certain patients intentionally at the patient’s request. Under that law, euthanasia is qualified as “end-of-life care”. Living with Dignity and the Physicians' Alliance against euthanasia are challenging this law in front of the court.
We need your help to pay the substantial costs.
A joint campaign
Euthanasia is forbidden by the Criminal Code of Canada and the Quebec Government does not have the power to adopt those provisions. Living with Dignity and the Physicians' Alliance against euthanasia are jointly challenging this law in court.
Help us save Quebec and Canadian society from euthanasia
An Act respecting end-of-life care was adopted by the Quebec National Assembly on June 5, 2014, allowing doctors to provoke the death of certain patients intentionally at the patient’s request. This procedure is called “medical aid in dying” but is actually euthanasia.
If you have ever been sick, you know how vulnerable you feel when you have uncontrolled pain or other symptoms. You have experienced fears for the future and felt that you were alone or a burden for those you love. You might even have thought you would be better off dead.
This law puts everyone at risk. It is contrary to Canada’s Criminal Code, which forbids all killing, even with the consent of the person. For that reason the citizen’s network Living with Dignity and the Physicians’ Alliance against Euthanasia are challenging before the courts those provisions of this law that are aimed at decriminalizing euthanasia as “medical aid in dying”.
