Say NO to Infanticide

TO: Quebec College of Physicians

On October 7, 2022, Dr. Louis Roy addressed the Parliamentary Committee tasked with reviewing Canada’s euthanasia law. He did so as a representative of your organization and of Quebec doctors.

In his statement, entered into the parliamentary record, he called for the euthanasia killing of children under age one with “severe malformations” and “grave and severe syndromes”, whose “survival is null, so to speak.” In other words, speaking on your behalf, he has urged the actual murder of deformed and sick infants – babies in their cribs! This is known as “infanticide”, a barbaric, unconscionable practice and Criminal Code offence.

I am outraged and horrified by this proposal. Every child matters, regardless of their age, race, disability, deformity, or sickness. Their God-given right to life must be respected, and they must receive appropriate, life-affirming treatment, care, and compassion from our medical professionals. There must be no option to murder a vulnerable child experiencing any sickness or deformity. Even the thought of such an act, which is rooted in discrimination and prejudice, must be banished from every doctor’s mind.

Inclusion Canada, a national federation of thirteen intellectual disability rights organizations, states: “Canada cannot begin killing babies when doctors predict there is no hope for them. Predictions are far too often based on discriminatory assumptions about life with a disability.” They also note that “providing MAiD [euthanasia] to a person who cannot consent is a standard that is wildly dangerous for all persons with intellectual disabilities in Canada.”

Therefore, I am calling on you to officially renounce your policy in favour of infanticide and to reaffirm your historic mission of healing and caring, which is summed up in the words of the Hippocratic Oath, pledging to “do no harm”.

I am also calling on you to initiate a new policy to discipline doctors like Dr. Louis Roy, who advocate for infanticide. In order to restore the public’s trust in Quebec health care, doctors who promote criminal activities and undermine human rights must be punished.

Sincerely,

[ The Undersigned ]

Keep babies in the womb safe. They are not to be killed for convenience or other reasons. Their life is like yours and mine, to be lived to the best of their ability. Would you want to be killed? I don't, not do I want to participate in the killing of anyone, especially a defenseless infant in the womb. Please don't legalize it.

Babies, whether deformed, Ill, or Mentally challenged, are still human beings and are entitled to the same safety and respect as you and I am. Doctors must honour their hippocratic oath and heal, not kill.

My daughter was born 24yrs ago, at 22 weeks gestation, They gave her a 5% to live. They wanted to take her off all life support in NICU. She survived and is such a blessing to us. My point is they have technically been euthanizing babies for along time without the law. We just would not give them our consent. This law has to be stopped.

Doctors are not God. They cannot deem a person worthy of life or not. Their job is to heal and DO NO HARM. Stop infanticide!

Do u realize how many wonderful people living a full blessed life even with severe deformity or disease? Look them up. Imagine if they were killed , they wouldn't have fallen in love and have a family . How evil is this world. God help those who insist on this evil.
