CHAC releases statement re: Bill C-7

Posted on March 17, 2019

On March 17, Catholic Health Alliance of Canada (CHAC) released a statement on Bill C-7.

Catholic health organizations do not provide medical assistance in dying (“MAiD”) because it is not in keeping with our fundamental values, ethical guidelines, mission, and religious purpose. Bill C-7 does not change this position, and in fact calls us to be more diligent about the obligation of Catholic health care to serve vulnerable populations and to address issues of systemic inequalities particularly at the end of life. Read the full statement here.
