Canada: 90-year-old chooses assisted suicide over another lockdown

The family of a 90 year old Canadian woman says she chose a ‘medically-assisted death’ (MAID) rather than face another lockdown during which people could not visit her in her nursing home.

In Canada, you do not need to have a fatal or terminal condition to apply for assisted suicide.

Some in the field of assisted suicide report a growing number of elderly people inquiring about it, and that lockdowns are accelerating the timelines among seniors already considering assisted suicide.
