In August of last year, Christian Legal Fellowship wrote to the Manitoba government, urging the legislature to protect health care providers from pressures to either perform euthanasia/assisted suicide directly or effectively refer patients requesting such procedures to a willing physician. CLF argued that to mandate such participation would violate physicians’ Charter-protected right to conscience and religion. It would also penalize and exclude conscientiously-objecting physicians from medical occupations on the basis of their religion which amounts to discrimination and a violation of s.15 of the Charter.
In May of this year, Manitoba held the first reading of Bill-34. If it passes, this legislation will protect health care professionals who conscientiously object to participating, either directly or indirectly, in euthanasia/assisted suicide from being compelled to do so. Bill-34 also provides further protection from professional regulatory rules requiring participation.
