Turning point

            We now know that euthanasia is an issue in Canada.  In some case, like the Rodriguez case, parliament needs to legalize euthanasia.  As indicated, Rodriguez knew what was going to happen to her if she did not die, and knew that her illness did not have a cure. Therefore, she should have had the right to let her physician kill her.  She did win on her own terms though; she was put to death.  There were 15 witnesses.

            Euthanasia is one of the biggest debates in Canada and Canada should make a decision on what euthanasia really is.  We should fallow countries like the Netherlands or others that at least tolerate indirect euthanasia.
