    British Columbia struck down their ban on Physician Assisted suicide.

    Hopefully, it will be across Canada in one year.

    I've never understood why it has been illegal. Over here you can refuse treatment, so you can die a slow and sometimes painful death, but doctors can't help you make it quick and painless. I can understand doctors not wanting to do this, so hopefully it won't become mandatory for doctors to perform this.

    Here in the Netherlands Assisted Suicide is legal if you follow the law, there all sort of rules in place. At the moment its done at home but it can also be done in a special place where people can stay and say their goodbyes.
