I blog about free markets in medical care and transparent pricing.
News flash. You couldn’t make this stuff up if you had to.
Toronto——-“Canada’s justice minister says the federal government will appeal a British Columbia Supreme Court ruling saying that federal laws banning doctor-assisted suicide are unconstitutional. A British Columbia Supreme Court justice ruled last month that laws banning assisted suicide are invalid because they discriminate against severely ill patients. The justice suspended her ruling for one year to give Canada’s federal Parliament time to draft new legislation.”
Wow. And we thought Justice Roberts was unreasonable. Can’t deny these severely ill patients suicide, now can we? Oh well. The Parliament will figure out a way around allowing these severely ill patients getting in the way of everyone else’s free health care. And I guess they won’t be charged for getting killed. What a model to copy.
