Interfaith Leaders Speak Out Against Euthanasia & Assisted Suicide
In a rare demonstration of unity, interfaith leaders from across the country have denounced government proposals to legalize euthanasia and assisted suicide. The Declaration on Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide has been endorsed by over 30 Christian denominations together with over 20 Jewish and Muslim leaders from across Canada. In light of the Supreme Court of Canada's ruling in R. v. Carter, the joint statement advocates for palliative care, respect for the dignity of the human person, human solidarity and psychological, spiritual and emotional support as the ethical and moral response in end-of-life care.The declaration was released at an October 29th news conference on Parliament Hill by the the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) and The Evangelical Fellowship of Canada (EFC).
