The euthanasia lobby has started a campaign to force Canada’s denominational medical institutions to participate or provide (MAiD) euthanasia.
The Canadian Press reported that Dying With Dignity is campaigning to stop “forced transfers” a process that they define as transfers from medical facilities that forbid (MAiD) euthanasia.
The euthanasia lobby wants to stop the transfer of people who have requested euthanasia by forcing denominational medical institutions to do euthanasia.
The Canadian Press report stated:
Dying With Dignity says the service is being restricted because of an agreement that allows facilities covered by the Denominational Health Association to collect taxpayer dollars but refuse to perform services they oppose on religious or moral grounds.
Alex Muir, chair of the Metro Vancouver chapter of Dying With Dignity, says upholding the agreement denies eligible people their constitutionally protected right to access a medically assisted death.
The British Columbia government is already forcing provincially funded medical institutions that are not affiliated with a denomination to provide (MAiD) euthanasia.
Last year the Delta Hospice Society was defunded by the BC Ministry of Health because they refused to kill their patients.
In 2019, the euthanasia lobby pressured the Nova Scotia government to order St Martha’s Hospital in Antigonish NS to provide euthanasia. The Nova Scotia government succumbed to the pressure and ordered St Martha’s hospital, to provide euthanasia. In response, the Antigonish Health and Wellness Centre, which is not owned by St Martha’s hospital, agreed to provide euthanasia.
