Canada’s highest court handed down its Carter decision last February striking down the nation’s laws against assisted suicide and giving legislators twelve months to craft new rules and standards of oversight. The push to legalize active euthanasia is on. Quebec’s Coalition of Physicians for Social Justice has just released a video featuring a family’s appeal to keep that legalization from happening.
Keep this family in mind when assisted suicide legislation returns locally – as it will.
(My thanks to Nancy Elliott and the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition for bringing my attention to this video. Alex Schadenberg of EPC has a blog where you can find more information about the situation in Canada.)
