In 2015, the Supreme Court of Canada struck down criminal laws prohibiting medical assistance in dying (MAID) in its Carter v Canada ruling. Assisted Suicide in Canada delves into the moral and policy dimensions of this case, summarizing other key rulings and subsequent legislation. Travis Dumsday explores thorny topics such as freedom of conscience for healthcare professionals, public funding for MAID, and extensions of eligibility. Carter v Canada will alter Canadians' understanding of life, death, and the practice of medicine for generations. This nuanced work will help readers think through the legal, ethical, and policy issues surrounding assisted dying.
