Protect Doctors’ Conscience Rights: Belgium’s advice to Canada

This is the latest video in a series produced by the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition.Bill C-14, the euthanasia and assisted suicide bill introduced by the Liberal government in April contains no conscience protection clause for health care providers.  Albertos Polizogopoulos, a constitutional lawyer, representing Canadian Physicians for Life pointed out:

“The bill provides no protection for conscientious objectors. In fact it compels them to be part of the chain of events leading up to a person’s death. Absent explicit protections for health practitioners’ conscience rights, the bill violates their Canadian Charter  of Rights and Freedoms right to freedom of conscience.”
