An attempt to create a right to medical and non medical assisted suicide (in reality, all assisted suicides are non medical regardless of a doctor’s participation) has been thrown out of court. The “Farewell Foundation” (!!!–is it any wonder I can only shake my head at these people?) will intervene in another lawsuit intended to overrule the Rodriguez case, that found no constitutional right to assisted suicide in Canada. Since precedent means little anymore when a desired outcome is, well, desired, who can blame the assisted suicide crowd from trying again?
