Quebec is proposing a limited form of euthanasia. The "dying with dignity" legislation would allow doctors to end the life of a terminally ill patient, who is of sound mind and who is receiving palliative care, to end their life. These are the only conditions under which physician assisted suicide would be legal.
I will be posting some more thoughts on this subject in the next few weeks. In the meantime, interested readers may want to read an November 2011 post, "Euthanasia: a slippery slope" which is accessible at http://faithcolouredglasses.blogspot.ca/2011/11/euthanasia-slippery-slope.html.
