The language of physician-assisted death is key. It's not euthanasia, but a choice by a sentient, adult human being, who is assisted by medical professionals. It's now the law. We need good parameters. It is my right to make this choice. Most will not, but want the option. My clients with ALS, MS, approaching death and dementia, want to know they can make this choice.
As the Supreme Court affirmed the right to die, it ruled doctors have a conscientious or religious right to refuse. In Canada, publicly-funded hospitals run by Roman Catholic orders are making it clear they won't be agreeing with requests for death.
