Canada Assisted Suicide Bill Precludes Tourists

April 15, 2016

(Fox News) – Canada has introduced a new assisted suicide law that will only apply to Canadians and residents, meaning Americans won’t be able to travel to Canada to die. Visitors will be excluded under the proposed law announced Thursday, precluding the prospect of suicide tourism. Canadian government officials said to take advantage of the law the person would have to be eligible for health services in Canada.
