Group Co-Founded by Canada's Bishops Calls on MPs to Oppose Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide

( - The Catholic Organization for Life and Family (COLF), a group co-founded by the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) and the Supreme Council of the Knights of Columbus, sent an open letter yesterday to all of Canada's MPs, urging them to vote against Bill C-384. The private members bill, brought by Bloc Quebecois MP Francine Lalonde (La Pointe-de-l'Ile), seeks to legalize euthanasia and assisted suicide.

This is definitely good news.  COLF has done excellent work over the years. But the bishops cannot delegate their responsibility to teach about life issues to COLF.  They need to teach it themselves by their words AND ESPECIALLY by their actions.  So far, most of them aren't doing too well, judging by their handing of the Development and Peace scandal and their invitation of a dissenter to speak at their Plenary, not to mention the abortions taking place at St. Joseph's Catholic Hospital in London under the supervision and approval of a Catholic priest.

Lord help us!
