B.C. doctors help Calgary woman end her life after landmark court ruling

Terminally ill and rapidly deteriorating, a Calgary woman suffering from ALS has died after being granted court permission to have doctors end her life — the first such ruling in Alberta.

In a written decision posted online Tuesday, Justice Sheilah Martin said the unidentified woman met the criteria for a constitutional exemption to the law prohibiting physician-assisted suicide.

The woman died Monday with her family at her side.

      That’s my take, too. But I feel the same way about abortionists.

    Once upon a time I thought that Logan’s Run was just a nice little science fiction story. Now it seems to be the next stage of the progressive’s future platform for dealing with the elderly and infirm.
