Humanist Canada sends the following request to Canadian humanists:End of life

We’re asking you to write your Member of Parliament today.

The struggle to establish the right to physician assisted dying for critically ill Canadians is more than 20 years old. It began with Sue Rodriguez’s Supreme Court Challenge back in 1993.

Today, we are just weeks or even days away from seeing legislation from the federal government that will determine what this right looks like in reality.

That’s why we need you to take action today.

Although 8 out of 10 Canadians support the right to die with dignity, there are small but powerful anti-choice groups who are doing everything they can to pressure our elected officials to create onerous barriers that would prevent some Canadians from exercising their rights. 

For the full text of the request, please view HC’s entire statement.
