Bill to legalize euthanasia introduced in Quebec
reporting that a bill has been introduced in the Quebec legislature that would
legalize euthanasia throughout the province as “medical aid in dying.” It would
allow those with “an incurable serious illness” to be killed by doctors.
This comes on the
heels of a poll that found 63
percent of Canadians would support a law allowing physician-assisted suicide in
Canada while 55 percent would support legalizing euthanasia. These numbers
have dropped over the last few years.
