  • October 31, 2014

OTTAWA - The Catholic Women’s League, Canada’s largest women’s organization, has issued a statement that affirms its opposition to euthanasia and assisted suicide and urges Ottawa to create of a national palliative care strategy. 

The statement calls on the government “to demonstrate compassion, love and dignity for every human life by providing a national, comprehensive palliative care strategy and urges the federal government to continue to resist calls to legalize the abandonment of vulnerable people facing challenging life circumstances.” 

The CWL also threw its support behind a national campaign launched by the Catholic Organization for Life and Family, with support from Canada’s bishops, to promote palliative and home care.” More information can be found at 

“Time is of the essence,” the CWL said. “League sisters are urged to have conversations with their loved ones, become informed on the impact of euthanasia and assisted suicide, and palliative and home care and pray for the Supreme Court of Canada to make the right decision in choosing life and love.”
