As many of you are aware, on June 5th of 2014, the National Assembly of Quebec passed Bill 52, entitled “an Act respecting end-of-life care”. With that vote, the Province of Quebec became the first Canadian province to legalize medically assisted death. The Minister of Health Gaétan Barrette said the law will come into force in December of 2015, or as soon as the province has established a commission on end-of-life-care to oversee implementation. The passage of this law is a cause of great concern for us as Catholics and for Canadians as a whole.
Today, to discuss the topic of Euthanasia with us is Charles Lewis. He is a veteran journalist with 33 years of experience in the newspaper industry. He spent the last 15 years with the National Post, of which the last 7 years were spent covering religion. Charles retired in December because of illness and he now spends his time lecturing on the dangers of legalized euthanasia.
