"A Bridge Too Far — Assisted Death in Canada"

Who has the right to determine when they die? For most of history, taking one’s own life has been viewed as something society should prevent at all costs. Yet in Canada today, assisted suicide is on the rise. In fact, the government has made it a legal option.
Josh and Betsy put these concerning trends under the microscope as they examine a difficult but highly pertinent topic: should we have the power to determine when we die?
Items Discussed:

 "How Canada's Assisted Suicide Law Went Wrong"-- The Atlantic Article
