Call to Conscience – An Important Issue with Implications on Religous Freedom

This past Sunday at Toronto City Church we had a representative from Call to Conscience share with us about a campaign that is being organized to protect the rights of doctors, nurses and other healthcare practitioners to refrain from being involved in assisted suicide.
