Toronto, Apr. 25, 1980 -- For immediate release
The long-awaited report of the Anglican General Synod's Task Force on Human Life titled, "Dying: Considerations on the Passage from Life to Death," is available to the general public.
The report, which has been the centre of major controversy for three years, and has gone through several revisions, is now published in its final form. The co-editors of the report were Dr. Lawrence Whytehead of Winnipeg and the Rev. Canon Paul Chidwick of Windsor.
"As has been said during those three years, and must be repeated again," said Archdeacon Harry H. Hilchey, the Church's General Secretary, "this is not a policy statement, it is a discussion paper. It will provide for Anglicans, and indeed many other Canadians, constructive assistance in grappling with the vital moral questions being raised by advances in technology and science. Also, it will give much-needed leadership in a critical examination of the manner in which we treat and minister to terminally-ill persons."
A copy of the report can be seen at Diocesan Synod headquarters. Copies may be purchased soon at retail outlets across the country or may be ordered now from Anglican Book Centre, 600 Jarvis St., Toronto M4Y 2J6.

Notes
"While the government tabled legislation April 14 [2016] to clarify the laws around doctor-assisted death, responses from some members of the Anglican Church of Canada's task force on assisted dying show that the church -- and Canadian society -- remain divided about how widely available this measure should be. Canon Eric Beresford, the ethicist who chairs the task force, said he felt the government 'tried hard to balance a number of things', and commended the decision to exclude children from the purview of the act. Another member of the task force, however, suggested its restrictiveness is a problem. Julie Guichon, a lawyer and assistant professor at the University of Calgary's school of medicine, argued that in its current form the bill is unconstitutional." (p. 1). "Meanwhile, the government's promise to spend $3 billion over the next five years for homecare and expanded palliative care was received positively by various quarters. Beresford said the announcement was 'wonderful news', and suggested that with assisted dying now an option, strong palliative care is more important than ever" (p. 12).

"Ian Gentles, editor".
"This book is intended for several audiences: those who work professionally with the dying and the bereaved, those who must cope with the death of someone close to them, and those who wish to reflect on the issues, moral and intellectual, raised by death and bereavement. Two years ago the Anglican Church of Canada published a report by its Taskforce on Human life entitled 'Dying: Considerations Concerning the Passage from Life to Death'. The report has provoked much discussion, to which the present volume is a contribution". -- Preface.
