Soutenir la norme

Nous avons besoin de votre soutien pour porter la Norme à l’attention des parlementaires.

La norme sur la protection des personnes vulnérables contient un ensemble de mesures de protection qui aident à garantir que les Canadiens et les Canadiennes qui demandent l’aide médicale à mourir à leur médecin peuvent le faire sans mettre en péril la vie des personnes vulnérables qui sont à risque d’être abusées ou contraintes. Nous demandons que tous les députés s’assurent que ces mesures de protection sont intégrées à toutes les lois fédérales encadrant l’aide médicale à mourir.

 

Conseillers de la norme sur les personnes vulnérables

Les personnes suivantes ont offert leur point de vue et leur précieuse expertise à ce projet par une participation active à la rédaction et à la révision ou par un appui réfléchi de la norme et du cadre de travail de ses mesures de protection.

Même si certaines conseillers, organisations, et personnes ont des objections éthiques et morales à l’euthanasie et au suicide assisté, elles appuient cette norme pour aider à limiter les préjudices et les risques que ces pratiques représentent, particulièrement pour les personnes vulnérables.

Les affiliations des conseillers sont indiquées à titre informatif seulement et ne représentent pas nécessairement l’appui de l’organisation.
