Petition: No to Child Euthanasia in Canada.

In March 2021, the Canadian government expanded its (MAiD) euthanasia law by passing Bill C-7 which allowed euthanasia for mental illness and for incompetent people who had been previously approved to die.

The Canadian government appears to want further expansions of euthanasia.

The Special Joint Committee on Medical Assistance in Dying (AMAD) has been given five topics to study related to euthanasia in Canada. One of the topics is euthanasia for mature minors (children).

In September 2018, the Journal of Medical Ethics published a paper titled, “Medical Assistance in Dying at a paediatric hospital”. This paper proposed a policy for implementing euthanasia for children that was developed by a committee at The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. The paper stated that it was possible that euthanasia of children could take place in the future without the knowledge or consent of the parents.

We need you to sign the following petition to the co-chairs of the Special Joint Committee on Medical Assistance in Dying - No to Child Euthanasia in Canada (Link).

 

We, the undersigned, oppose euthanasia for mature minors.

We believe that children should be protected and cared for, not killed.

There are many concerns about euthanasia for mature minors, including the competency of the child, parents facing emotional and psychological pressures, and the false concept that denying children euthanasia is a form of discrimination.

Children need protection, care and love. We need to protect their lives.

Child euthanasia. We say, “NO.”
