I am a physician and I want to give my support
We are an alliance of physicians against euthanasia and assisted suicide who see any law allowing doctors to intentionally end the life of their patients as contrary to the goals of medicine and the good of our patients, especially the most vulnerable and those who cannot speak for themselves.
The question of euthanasia matters to all physicians, regardless of their specialty or area of practice.
The Declaration is our defining document.

Open Letter to the Canadian People on Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide
Physicians have sent an open letter, urging all Canadians to heed the warning signs from those places which have made the mistake of entrenching these practices, and to oppose their introduction into health care in our country. The letter was originally published in the Calgary Herald on October 14, 2014.
Patients at the end of life should receive diligent and competent care to relieve their pain and suffering. The physician has the obligation to use all the means available to achieve this end.–Le manifeste
We are more than 660 physicians to have signed a declaration stating we will refuse to participate in those acts of killing, and several hundred more will join us once they realise the threat is real.–Dr. Marc Beauchamp MD FRCSC
I think it would be a disastrous mistake to legalize euthanasia in Quebec and Canada.–Dr. Balfour Mount
