These guidelines support the advancement of a growing culture of death in Canada. Whatever happened to the medical ethical standard of the Hippocratic Oath, to do no harm? We need to have and defend doctors and nurses that respect parents, acknowledging that no one loves and cares for that child more, not even ‘caring’ professionals. Opinions do vary, and in the end, the responsibility for decisions need to lie with the parent(s). However these guidelines with respect to Advice to the Profession Re: Informed Consent for Minors essentially take that responsibility away from parents and transfers it to the state and the sacrosanct medical opinion of physicians and nurse practitioners. One word, this is evil. Dr. Mengele, “The Angel of Death” would be proud.
