ARPA CANADA AVAILABLE FOR COMMENT ON CARTER EUTHANASIA CASE: PARLIAMENT MUST DO ALL IT CAN TO PROTECT LIFE

OTTAWA – The Supreme Court of Canada will release its decision in the Carter case, tomorrow morning at 9:45 a.m. The Association for Reformed Political Action (ARPA) Canada intervened in the case to defend the inviolability of human life.

We argued that the right to life must be objective and must apply equally to every human being. If assisted suicide or euthanasia is allowed, the right to life becomes subjective. Once this line is crossed, it is impossible for Parliament, Legislatures, or courts to draw lines which will adequately protect human dignity and human rights.

ARPA’s legal counsel André Schutten will be present at the Supreme Court and will be available for comment. To read ARPA’s factum, click here.
