Quote:"I do not wish to have continued suffering and to die of this illness by choking," wrote Ms. S. in one of her two affidavits. "I feel that my time has come to go in peace."

The Alberta judge found Ms. S. had met the criteria as she is a competent adult with a "grievous and irremediable medical condition" that causes intolerable suffering that can't be alleviated and who clearly consents to the termination of life.

It is now a 'go' here in Canada (outside of Quebec). I will certainly be taking advantage of this service if I find myself drowning slowly of pneumonia or some other painful slow death.

Yeah, he did. Damn Christians think it is better to make someone suffer than to go out on their own terms so they keep it illegal.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

Welcome Moe. You know, if any doctor does not follow the strict rules and guidelines (legalities) then they too can still be arrested. It is all about protecting the person from third party manipulation.

It should be about protecting them from needless suffering.

i agree.. i was in the hospital for pneumonia that time and i felt the worst ive ever felt in my life..
the dr wouldnt let me lay down because he said i might not wake up again.
it was really bad.

and if i had that, and felt like dying, then i cannot imagine what those ppl with very terrible illnesses constantly feel like..

it isnt right. there is no quality of life there.. and they arent going to get any better..
if they want it to end ppl shouldnt be trying to keep them here for themselves..
stupid laws.

Yeah, my dad suffered for over two months needlessly and he would have jumped at the chance to avoid it.

I always feel bad for the people who did something illegal a few years ago, then when they change the laws, it just "well... sorry".

it's the same with the marijuana laws here in Canada. when they " legalize' it, what are they going to do with everyone who has been charged? "well...sorry"

letting people out of jail admits that the system was wrong... will they every do that? doubt it.
also with "wrongful convictions" the next step is to try and receive compensation. and they will NOT give that either.

with the assisted suicide stuff... what about compensating people who had to watch their family suffer ?

obviously it's too much to expect the court\law system to react properly.

sorry if I drifted this sweet thread.

It will be looked at that they broke a law that was in place at the time, whether or not that same law was constitutional or made sense to be a law at the time or not.

If you think that is thread drift then you have a shock coming...we kb'ers are expert thread derailers.

If one was to sue the government, say for the marijuana thingie, could not one argue that it was government's fault when making MJ illegal that they forced a black market and criminality by taking away our constitutional rights to put whatever WE chose into OUR bodies? Just derailing with fantasy.
