Canada cherishes euthanasia over conscience

euthanasia 1A vocal opponent of euthanasia is raising awareness of a Canadian doctor who helped kill a nursing home patient and escaped an official medical complaint.

The nursing home, Louis Brier, is Jewish Orthodox and filed a complaint against Dr. Ellen Wiebe, a euthanasia physician, who sneaked into the home despite its rules. The doctor helped take the life of an 83-year-old man.

Alex Schadenberg of the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition says the nursing home forbids euthanasia because it adheres to Orthodox Judaism and because some residents are Holocaust survivors.

Responding to the complaint, a medical regulator has exonerated Dr. Weibe and concluded she did not violate any medical ethics.

Schadenberg tells OneNewsNow the Louis Brier incident is just the latest clash between pro-euthanasia forces in Canada and faith-based institutions that oppose the practice. He points to a Catholic hospital, St. Martha’s, whose beliefs are being challenged in Nova Scotia.  

Schadenberg, Alex (EPC)“It’s the only major health care institution in that region,” he explains, “so therefore it's being pressured to permit euthanasia on its premises.”

In other words, the hospital’s religious beliefs come second to the demand for it to terminate patients.

There is also no conscience protection for medical personnel due to a very liberal government.

Schadenberg says elections are in October and only voters can bring about needed changes that respect both life and religious liberty.
