GREETINGS FROM THE CWL PROVINCIAL PRESIDENT

  

Dear Sisters in the League,

  

Over the past few months, the Catholic Women’s League in cooperation with the Knights of Columbus and other concerned Christians have been working on a campaign to bring about provincial legislation to protect the conscience rights of all healthcare workers when dealing with euthanasian/medically assisted death. Medical professionals may feel the need to object to participating in physician assisted suicide for any number of reasons: faith, ethics, morals or the Hippocratic Oath. As it stands right now, doctors, nurses and pharmacists do not have adequate protection for their conscience rights under the federal legislation on assisted suicide.

  

This means that the provincial governments have the opportunity to create legislation that will protect the Charter of rights of conscientious objectors.

  

Last year, in Manitoba, a similar campaign resulted in their provincial government bringing this protection for healthcare workers into law. This was the result of the Knights, the CWL and other concerned faiths collecting 14,000 signatures.

  

We are hoping to collect at least 14,000 signatures for this campaign.

  

On the weekends of February 17th, there will be a pulpit announcement explaining the campaign and asking support for all those in the pews.

  

On the weekend of February 24th, there will be available at all parishes, pre-printed letters for each individuals to sign.

  

The Knights of Columbus have taken the lead on this undertaking, but they will need our help.

  

I am asking each CWL council to reach out to the K of C in their area and see where help is needed.  There may be help needed in reading the script for the pulpit announcement and will definitely be a need for help on the 24th to assist in getting letters signed and collected.

  

If there is no Knights presence in a parish, perhaps the CWL will be needed do the pulpit presentation and oversee the signing and collection of the letters.

  

For those councils made up of members who attend different parishes, please ask each member to assist in her home parish in any way needed.

  

This is an extremely important campaign and the timing is very limited. Snowbirds and others who are not available on the 24th will be able to sign a letter online.

  

Please talk to your family and friends about this campaign and encourage them to be involved.

  

Also, please pray for success so that our healthcare workers will never be coerced into performing Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID).

  

I thank you in advance for your assistance.

  

Sincerely,

  

Margaret Schwab, Saskatchewan Provincial CWL President
