Madam Speaker, I am honoured to present three petitions today.
The first petition relates to conscience protection. The petitioners highlight that coercion, intimidation, and other forms of pressure are being applied to force physicians, health care professionals, and institutions to be parties to assisted suicide and euthanasia, which is in violation of freedoms of conscience in Canada. This is another promise the government broke when it passed legislation regarding assisted suicide.
The petitioners are calling on Parliament to enshrine in the Criminal Code protection of conscience for physicians and institutions.
