Yesterday and finally, the Supreme Court of Canada struck down the ban on doctor assisted suicide.

As per the Huffington Post:

“The court unanimously struck down the ban on providing a doctor assisted death to mentally competent but suffering and irremediable patients.”

I lost both parents to cancer and saw each bedside vigil to it’s inevitable and ultimate conclusion.

Both times it was incomprehensible to me that laws refused any death with dignity.

Hopefully, this ends now.

Families across Canada will never have to experience the helplessness at not being able to tell the medical community as their loved ones slowly, ever so slowly walk through the valleys in the shadow of death:

“No more suffering…

…Enough.”
