WATCH: Belgians Warn Canadians About Euthanasia

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 05/04/16

As Canada debates a controversial euthanasia bill, Belgians have stern words of warning

As Canadians debate and discuss the controversial Bill C-14 before a June 6 deadline, the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition has released the first of four short video clips called “Medical Aid in Dying? Don’t Go There.”

In January, a film crew went to Belgium, where euthanasia has been enshrined in the law since 2002, and spoke with victims’ relatives and experts about what has happened in Belgium and what they have to say to Canadians as they consider legalizing euthanasia. Their advice in a nutshell: Don’t do it.
