Urgent action required: Expansion of access to MAID

The government is asking Canadians their views on safeguards for medical assistance in dying (MAID). Whether Canadians support safeguards or not will have an impact on what the government includes in new legislation on MAID, which is expected very soon.

In this podcast Julia Beazley, the EFC’s director of public policy, sheds light on the context of this consultation and walks us through what Christians concerned about MAID need to know about this online survey and some of the most life-affirming ways to answer its questions.

This is the time when your input can have the most impact. Because the two-week consultation period will conclude before Parliament resumes, it is important to communicate your concerns directly to the Minister of Justice.

Listen to how you can be involved in this important change in legislation. And check out our related blog post from Jan. 14 which puts much of this in writing and includes hyperlinks to the survey and other resources.
