Take Action: Help Stop Bill C-7
Speak out. Champion Equality. Share your Story. Change the Conversation.
We’re calling for MAiD to be restricted to end of life circumstances. Bill C-7 would allow for people who have a disability to die when they are suffering without first addressing the reasons for their suffering and the challenges they face in attaining a good quality of life. This is not how we respond to the suffering of any other group of Canadians, much less any other Charter protected group.
Get involved to promote the equal value of all people and all lives.
