Voice Your Choice for Assisted Dying
The federal government is studying the possible impacts of allowing medical assistance in dying (MAID) for three groups of Canadians who don’t currently qualify – Those who will be excluded unless the law is changed to allow for advance requests; Individuals whose primary medical condition is a mental illness; and Mature minors.
Dying With Dignity is seeking submissions from Canadians who have personal concerns or stories to tell about how the current restrictions on MAID have already unfairly restricted (or may, in future, restrict) choices in dying for themselves or someone they know. Click here for more information about this campaign. Deadline for submissions is September 15th.
If you don’t have a personal story to tell right now, but still want to add your voice to those of others who support advance requests for assisted dying, click here.
Demand an End to “Faith-Based” Health Care
Religiously affiliated health care facilities are denying their patients access to legally available Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID) in Canada. Let your government representatives know that you want that changed. Click here for more information and a sample letter.
