Faith-based Facilities

Many faith-based hospitals and treatment facilities do not wish to participate in euthanasia/assisted suicide.

There are strong voices pushing to force these facilities to end the life of their patients. We know that no hospital offers every procedure. Why then would we expect faith-based hospitals to end lives rather than save them?


Background

  • Many faith-based were founded on the principle of saving patient lives, not ending them.

  • Faith-based hospitals will not abandon patients who seek assisted death. They can arrange for a transfer of care to another appropriate facility.

  • Euthanasia advocates are pressing government to force these facilities to participate in ending the lives of their patients.


Take Action

In advance of the June 2018 provincial election in Ontario, please go to CanadiansforConscience.ca/ontario to write to all candidates in your riding, asking them where they stand on continued conscience protection for faith-based facilities.
