Provincial govt orders Canadian hospice to begin killing sick patients in February
The British Columbia government is ordering a palliative care hospice to allow its patients to be killed onsite through "medically-assisted death," or euthanasia, by February 3.
Fraser Health Authority (FHA) issued the deadline to the Delta Hospice Society in late December but did not specify the consequences if it does not comply, reported the Delta Optimist.
It's the latest development in the society's long-running battle to
prevent the lethal injection of patients onsite at the 10-bed Irene
Thomas Hospice it runs in a suburb of Delta, a city south of Vancouver.
