Gastroenterology and the Right-to-Die Legislation
As you are probably aware, the right-to-die legislation adopted by the Supreme Court of Canada in February 2015 has invalidated the Criminal Code articles forbidding anyone to help another person to die. The Supreme Court of Canada gave the government one year to change its approach to the right-to-die legislation in accordance with the parameters defined by the Supreme Court. However, the recent change in government has led the Liberal party to ask for a six-month extension to allow for the exploration of potential responses to this new legislation.
If the new legislation were to be accepted as currently stated, it could be applied to any competent adult person who clearly consents to the termination of his/her life and has a grievous and irremediable medical condition. That would include any illness, disease or disability that causes enduring suffering intolerable to the individual in the circumstances of his or her condition. Gastroenterology will not escape this new regulation; we have only to think, for example, of digestive cancers and terminal liver failure.
As the Chair of the CAG Ethics, it is my intention to form a sub-committee with the mandate to propose parameters that could be used in nominating diseases eligible for consideration by the new regulation.
To this end, I would like to invite any of my colleagues across Canada who may be interested to help me with this task. Please do let me know if you would like to participate.
