In the early 2000s and late 1990s, it was Terri Schiavo, the lady who broke down at 26 years of age in 1990 and ultimately passed away (after a dragged out court fight in between her partner, Michael Schiavo, and her household) of dehydration in 2005, according to a website in her honor, Terri’s Fight. The doctor-assisted suicide and right-to-life problem comes to life as soon as more this week with a Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada hospice’s option to start to provide doctor-assisted suicide.

A law concerning doctor-assisted suicide is set to enter into effect in December, 2015, and the hospice is set to offer doctor-assisted suicide to terminally ill clients starting in February, 2016. The Quebec hospice might have to contract out the service because the two physicians on staff are away on a “duration of reflection,” according to the Montreal Gazette.
CEO of Maison Aube-Lumière, Elizabeth Brière, stated the service is going to start being offered February 1, 2016, 5 days before the ban on doctor-assisted suicide is set to be raised outside Quebec, according to CBC News. Medical professionals who have reservations about performing the service won’t be forced to participate in doctor-assisted suicide, and the service will just be offered those in “exceptional” situations.
When end-of-life care has not done much to relieve a client’s discomfort, examples where doctor-assisted suicide may be performed consist of circumstances. Maison Aube-Lumière said that it’s anticipated instances where doctor-assisted suicide may be provided would only take place 2 or three times a year.
