Supreme Court of Canada rules in favour of doctor-assisted suicide

The Supreme Court of Canada has struck down a ban on doctor assisted suicide.

The decision means that the existing legislation on doctor assisted suicide is no longer valid.

Parliament now has a year to draft new legislation recognizing the rights of clearly consenting adults to seek such services.
