Brother Solanus (Third Order member not in the Resistance) requests:
Please sign this petition and protect the lives of the helpless. God bless you for it.
I’m still in shock. In a jaw-dropping decision today, Canada’s Supreme Court unanimously overturned the country’s law against assisted suicide!
Make no mistake: this anti-life ruling is merely the first step down a slippery slope that leads to the heinous practices we’ve increasingly seen in places like Belgium and the Netherlands, where euthanasia is now permissible even for children, and studies have found that more and more people are being euthanized without their consent!
Furthermore, this decision will NOT affect just Canada. Liberal activists and activist judges in the United States and other Western countries will see this decision as a sign that the wind is favorable to their plans to further their anti-life agenda.
That’s why this decision must be stopped in its tracks. And that’s why I’m urging everyone, Canadian or not, to sign this petition asking Canada’s Parliament to override this egregious decision.
Let’s be clear: the Canadian Parliament has the power, under the rarely invoked “notwithstanding” clause of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, to override this ruling.
But it is going to take a lot of political courage for Parliament to make that happen.
That’s why we need hundreds of thousands of people in Canada and all around the world to let Canada’s Parliament know that we are counting on them to protect the vulnerable.
Canadians pride themselves on being a caring, welcoming nation, a country that defends the vulnerable. Yet this ruling sends the message to the weak and infirm that their lives are not worth protecting.
Equally as harmful, it turns the practice of medicine and the Hippocratic Oath on their heads: transforming doctors from healers into killers! Once this crucial line is blurred, there is no end to the harmful effects that will follow.
Indeed, there is no positive side to this ruling. Please, help us send an unmistakable message to Canada’s Parliament, TODAY. Sign this petition urging Members of Parliament to override today’s Supreme Court’s decision legalizing assisted suicide.
For life and family,
P.S. Let’s send an unmistakable message to Canada’s Parliament that we expect them to put a swift stop to this unprecedented and harmful ruling. Sign the petition (click here) today, and then share it with your friends and family!
