The right to die that remains a privilege

Medical Assistance in Dying has been legal in Canada for two years now. The Canadian government saw a gap in the way palliative care provided a final comfort in dying and thus the right to die was recognized. Following the Carter v. Canada ruling and the assent of Bill C-14 in 2016, legislation finally provided Canadians with this right to end their lives and yet this right only extended to those with a terminal illness. The debate on the current state of MAiD has multiple sides, with some health professionals believing the current laws to be just while others believe it to be too restrictive. As the Council of Canadian Academies is independently publishing a government-mandated report in December 2018 on certain qualities that deny eligibility for MAiD, some insight will be provided to the health community moving forward.

In the first episode of a new podcast series brought you by RSJ Radio, The Lede and its host Dan Drigo explores MAiD and the criticism it faces by various health-care professionals.
