The liberal Canadian government is advancing plans to update the country’s “assisted suicide” laws to allow authorities to euthanize children without the need for parental consent.
Assisted suicide and euthanasia have become rapidly accepted in Canada.
The government has continued to lift restrictions on its Medical Aid in Dying (MAiD) program.
Initially, it was introduced to give people who were terminally ill an option to prevent then from dying a slow painful death.
Over time, however, the laws have become more relaxed.
