Quebec’s health minister, Gaetan Barrette, has threatened to discipline doctors at the University of Montreal Health Centre for refusing to provide assisted suicide when it becomes legal on December 10th, while euthanasia advocates urge him to defund the province’s 29 hospices, who have also said they will not help their patients die.
“It is the administrative fundamentalism,” Barrette is quoted in La Presse as saying of the unanimous decision by the hospices. “They will force people in later life housed within their walls to move to access medical help to die? It boggles the mind.”
The Parti Québécois MNA and euthanasia critic Véronique Hivon also expressed shock at the hospices’ “block position taken, without nuance, by all of the 29 palliative care centres in Quebec.”
