With the Supreme Court of Canada preparing a landmark ruling on euthanasia and assisted-suicide in regards to the Carter v. Canada case, the question on whether or not an individual has the right-to-die is reemerging in Canada. Countries like Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxemburg, and Colombia have all successfully implemented right-to-die legislation, but currently the Criminal Code of Canada constitutes euthanasia and assisted-suicide (similarities and differences are noted here) as “murder” liable to 14 years of imprisonment. Throughout the decades, there has been a lot of opposition to this classification as illiberal and unethical. While their advocacy was ignored for many years, the tide seems to be turning in favor of right-to-die legislation. Last June, Quebec became the first province to pass right-to-die legislation, which treats euthanasia as part of end-of-life care, though it has been met with opposition by religious groups and the federal government. This sparked calls to re-examine the current federal legislation regarding euthanasia and assisted-suicide, prompting the upcoming review by the Supreme Court. But why does the right-to-die legislation matter so much and why should it be supported?
