Summary of the government's bill on medical assistance in dying
Posted by Lynne Butler
I recently came across an excellent analysis of the bill that's currently being proposed by the government, and I recommend it to anyone who wants to know the details of who will be able to access physician-assisted dying, and what circumstances must exist to make it available. The article is simply a summary of the facts, with some helpful commentary, of the terms of the proposed bill. It's not an editorial and it won't try to persuade you to either support or oppose the idea of physician-assisted dying.
