Staring MAiD in the Face: A Personal Story of End-of-Life Care
Since the Supreme Court of Canada first opened the door to so-called MAiD (medical assistance in dying), the door has opened ever wider. It’s coming to the point where Canada is becoming extreme in her eagerness to offer death as an option to those who are suffering, tempered only by—at least, in theory—respect for the patient’s autonomy. In this week’s edition of the AC Podcast, Steve sat down with Mike Schouten, the Director of Advocacy for ARPA Canada, to put a human face to what can often be talked about in abstraction. Join us this week to hear from Mike how his family navigated the last days of a loved one and how this impacted their view on doctor-assisted death.
