Assisted-dying bill fatally flawed for saying eligible patients must be terminal: lawyer

Don't think people will be 'duped' into being euthanized? I have a senior parishioner currently in a Quebec hospital with a diagnosis of cancer. The doctors were unsure as to the stage the cancer has progressed to and the biopsy reports are not yet in. But what was the FIRST treatment option presented to him yesterday? 'Doctor-assisted death'. Not only that, but given his limited education he thought the doctor was telling him he had a terminal condition. If his daughter had not been with him, he would have agreed thinking that he was being offered palliative care.

But the question should be asked: why was euthanasia the first option presented when all the diagnostic tests and procedures were not even complete?
