James Weisgerber, has recently issued a letter asking MPs and Canadian citizens to consider the consequences of legalizing assisted suicide and euthanasia. Currently Bill C-384, put forward by MP Francine Lalonde, is before parliament which, if passed, would legalize assisted suicide and euthanasia.
