CBC reported earlier in September that MP Francine Lalonde will not be running for re-election due to bone cancer. I pray she fights this disease as she did in the past. However, one part of the article struck me:
Lalonde made a name for herself in politics after introducing a private member’s bill that would allow euthanasia and assisted suicide under strict conditions.
- The fact is that Bill C-384 would have legalized euthanasia and assisted suicide for people with mental or physical pain,
- You did not have to be terminally ill and it didn’t define terminal illness.
- It was not limited to Canadian citizens.
- It defined competent as “appearing to be lucid.”
