Canada Legalizes Physician-Assisted Dying
After weeks of debate, Canadian lawmakers have passed legislation to legalize physician-assisted death.
That makes Canada “one of the few nations where doctors can legally help sick people die,” as Reuters reports.
The new law “limits the option to the incurably ill, requires medical approval and mandates a 15-day waiting period,” as The Two-Way has reported.
The Canadian government introduced the bill in April and it passed a final Senate vote Friday.
