Help us pass The Freedom of Conscience Protection Act
We have exciting news! The pro-life MP for Cypress Hills-Grasslands, David Anderson, has introduced Bill C-418, a private members bill to protect the freedom of conscience for doctors and other medical professionals.
As we speak, doctors across Canada are being coerced and intimidated to violate their consciences with respect to euthanasia. This has already led some to quit their practice, and others to move out of country.
Bill C-418 amends the Criminal Code to make it an offence to intimidate a medical practitioner, nurse practitioner, pharmacist or any other health-care professional for compelling them to take part, directly or indirectly, in the provision of euthanasia. To read the full bill, click here.
It also makes it an offence to dismiss from employment or to refuse to employ a medical practitioner, nurse practitioner, pharmacist or any other health-care professional for the reason only that they refuse to take part, directly or indirectly, in the provision of assisted suicide or euthanasia.
C-418 is expected to be debated on May 29th. We have a bit of time to lobby the MPs and urge them to vote in favour of this much-needed law.
In less than 1 minute, you will be able to email your Member of Parliament a pre-written message educating them on the bill, and asking them to vote in favour of it.
