Importance of assisted dying legislation and the chance to use it!

This Canadian story highlights key issues about the kind of assisted dying legislation that’s needed, the hurdles being put in the way of those who want to use it and the cruel choice for those who can’t – starve yourself to death.

Linda Crabtree, a Member of the Order of Canada, says: “My local hospital, hospice and long-term care hospital do not provide medical assistance in dying. I will keep myself as well as possible, but when the inevitable comes, I will follow my mother’s example and summon the guts to starve myself to death because no one else out there has the guts to help me die any other way.
