Quebec Euthanasia Euthanized

by Wesley J. Smith

Great news! A new election has been called in Quebec, meaning–as I described here–that the nearly-passed radical euthanasia bill has been euthanized. From the NYT story:

Less than 18 months after gaining a tenuous hold on power, Pauline Marois, the separatist premier of Quebec, called a snap election on Tuesday. Ms. Marois said in a brief televised speech that she was dissolving the provincial Legislature and that voters would choose a new one on April 7.

Quebec has gone radical, so I am not under any illusion that euthanasia won’t be back. But it is stopped for now, and that is call for celebration.
