While Quebec MNAs prepare to vote in a few days on Quebec's Bill 52, which seeks to legalize euthanasia by calling it "medical aid in dying," the true experts in humanity launch a serious warning: to offer to end a person's life, and to do so by intentionally injecting a poison, will never be medical care, but rather a very serious betrayal of the sick and the dying.
In a powerful video launched today in Montreal, two giants in the care of vulnerable people are appealing to the conscience of MNAs.
Jean Vanier, founder of L'Arche - with 150 communities in 40 countries that welcome people with disabilities - clearly condemns euthanasia as a crime. In an appeal to our humanity, he asks us to reject legalization of euthanasia. He contends that if we want our society to be truly human, we must learn to accompany and support those who are most vulnerable.

Euthanasia is at our doorstep, but we still have the power — for the sake of humanity — to forbid it entry.
