SIGNATURE GOAL

Protect Health Care Conscience Rights

To All Members of Parliament:

I would like to voice my support for Bill C-230, “An Act to amend the Criminal Code (intimidation of health care professionals)”.

This Bill ensures Canada’s doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and other health care workers are able to do their jobs with integrity, without being coerced into acting against their conscience.

I value the knowledge, training, expertise, and discernment of our health care professionals and I applaud the decision that many of them make to refuse to participate in euthanasia.

Many health care workers recognize that euthanasia is a violation of medical ethics. This is the long-standing position of the World Medical Association. This is also codified in the Hippocratic Oath, the timeless standard of medical ethics. Additionally, many express religious and moral objections over taking the life of another human being.

Some medical professionals object so strongly that they would leave their profession or leave the country rather than participate in a homicidal act.

No doctors, nurses, pharmacists, or other health care workers should feel pressured to violate their conscience. They should never be at risk of discrimination or reprisals in their employment for simply acting in accord with their training, ethics, and sincerely-held beliefs.

Therefore, in support of our Canadian medical professionals, and in deference to Canada’s Charter of Rights, which enshrines freedom of conscience, I am asking you to lend your support to Bill C-230.

Bill C-230 does more than give lip service to medical conscience rights, it puts those rights into law and penalizes abusers.

Sincerely,

[ The Undersigned ]

During this time when we have such a great respect for health care workers, it is fundamental to recognize their rights, and not to just thanking them without respecting their dignity. It is a violation of their fundamental right to be pushed into acting against their conscience.

Everyone must be free to follow their own conscience. Health care workers must not be forced to to act in a way that compromises this right.
