Supreme Court of Canada pronounce on assisted suicide

On February 6, 2015  the Supreme Court of Canada pronounced in the case of Carter v. Canada: We conclude that the prohibition on physician-assisted dying is void insofar as it deprives a competent adult of such assistance where (1) the person affected clearly consents to the termination of life; and (2) the person has a grievous and irremediable medical condition (including an illness, disease or disability) that causes enduring suffering that is intolerable to the individual in the circumstances of his or her condition.  We therefore allow the appeal.
