A new Quebec law that mandates palliative care facilities to provide medical assistance in dying has drawn criticism from euthanasia opponents and a palliative care advocate.

Bill 11 to expand medical assistance in dying (MAiD) passed in Quebec’s national assembly on June 7.

In a June 5 post online, Living with Dignity (Vivre Dans La Dignité), a non-profit opposed to euthanasia and assisted suicide, decried the bill’s “profoundly unfair treatment of palliative care hospices, particularly those not wishing to offer MAiD.”
