Choose Life

On this week's "Love and Life", we invited Rev. Joseph Tham to discuss with us the issue of Euthanasia. Many people have argued over the issue of Euthanasia, but God is the master of life, and only He can decide when an individual lives or dies. Although many suffering patients consider Euthanasia as an option, they do not realise that suffering in itself has meaning and value which can be offered up as a prayer to God. Finally, we must pay special care to these suffering patients, to learn to accompany and love them until the natural end of their lives.

Live and Let Live

The ultimate purpose of the legal system is to ensure equality for everyone, especially for vulnerable groups. However, the Criminal Code of Canada still uses a 400-year-old definition of human being, which states that a child has become a human being only at the moment of complete birth. As a result, the unborn has absolutely no legal protection. MP Stephen Woodworth has brought forward Motion 312 to urge the Parliament to revisit this definition of human being.
