Last year, the Canadian Supreme Court ruled (unanimously) that doctors could help terminally ill patients end their lives. The reality, however, is that public institutions still put up a variety of obstacles for doctors offering this service — which they’re legally allowed to do since the decision doesn’t go into effect until this summer.
It’s appalling that patients have to jump over this many unnecessary hurdles to access a legal service.
Where have we heard that one before…?
