Euthanasia or Palliative care?

Home 9 Blog 9 Peace for Life Society 9 Euthanasia or Palliative care?

Vancouver’s Life Community spoke to Kevin Dunn, producer of ‘Fatal Flaws’, the documentary on euthanasia. We asked him a series of questions about what we can do now that society has changed the way we define human dignity and therefore our attitudes on health care.

Question # 2: Is there a concern that physician assisted suicide and euthanasia have taken the place of palliative care? The context to this question is that people are choosing to die simply because there is no proper palliative care in place for them. 

Please contact Vancouver’s Life Community if you’d like us to facilitate LifeCanada’s national training called, The Dying Healed program, for your parish or group in Vancouver.

The average person will be inspired to seek big or little ways to share the power of their human presence to bring hope and consolation to those who need us the most.

You’ll receive a beautifully written instructional training booklet and participate in group discussions to better understand the concepts.

We’ll talk about end of life and palliative care, the laws around euthanasia, and a necessary discussion on defining human dignity, the meaning of human suffering, and pastoral care.

After this brief but profound preparatory training, you’ll be more open to seeking opportunities where ever they may be, and help someone who will greatly value your presence.
