Euthanasia & Assisted Suicide

Since assisted suicide was legalized in Canada in 2016, over 700 Canadians have had their lives prematurely ended by a doctor.  How do we talk about the issue of assisted suicide? What life-affirming resources are available in our community?  This resource e-mail has a variety of helpful links, but you are welcome to e-mail Guelph & Area Right to Life for more information if needed.

"My brain cancer—or what I can or can't do—doesn't define me as a person. But it does give me the opportunity to witness to the fact that every human life has incredible dignity, whether we are infirm or able. And all the while, my family and friends can daily learn the valuable lessons of caring for me in my last days with real compassion and respect. Through their loving care, they affirm what I also know—that my life is, always has been, and always will be, worth living."
 - Maggie Karner, article for United States Conference of Catholic Bishops
Film: The Euthanasia Deception
