Cana­dian Govt to Al­low Free Vote on Eu­thana­sia

The Economic Times - - Around The World -

Canada's Lib­eral govern­ment will al­low its mem­bers of par­lia­ment to vote for or against the physi­cian-as­sisted sui­cide Bill it will in­tro­duce on Thurs­day rather than re­quire them to back it, the Globe and Mail re­ported on Wed­nes­day. The supreme court of Canada over­turned a ban on physi­cian-as­sisted sui­cide last year, unan­i­mously re­vers­ing a de­ci­sion it made in 1993 and putting Canada in the com­pany of a hand­ful of Western coun­tries to make it le­gal.
