Call for Conscience Campaign – Health Care Professionals
Statement from Bishop Colli:
My dear friends, I would like to thank you for all that you currently do to support and strengthen our Catholic community. I would also like to ask for your help and prayers.
In 2017, many churches across the province were involved in the “Call for Conscience” campaign to advocate for the protection of conscience rights for doctors, nurses and other health care professionals who are asked to participate in assisted suicide/euthanasia. Despite more than 30,000 letters sent to Members of Provincial Parliament (MPP’s), this campaign did not achieve its desired goal: legislation that would protect health care workers from being forced to participate in causing the death of their patients. Health care workers in Ontario are being forced to choose between their careers and their conscience.
