It is a remarkable and encouraging statement of the real progress that the world right-to-die movement has made that today’s Sunday New York Times front page lead story is about doctor-assisted suicide, or doctor-assisted dying, whichever you like to call it.
This article concerns Canada where, as with the arrival of the Hemlock Society USA, the choice movement began in l980 when the subject was almost unmentionable in North America. There are now six states in the USA with doctor-assisted dying laws.
An interesting difference is that Canadian doctors (as in the Netherlands) can offer the patient choice of death by injection or orally. The US laws allow only drinking the lethal substance.
