Consortium chair Susan M. Wolf, JD, has posted on Harvard Law School’s Bill of Health about dying in America. Her post, co-authored wit Nancy Berlinger, PhD, and Bruce Jennings, MA, argues that decades of work to fix end-of-life care have failed to make the progress needed. The Canadian Supreme Court’s Feb. 6 decision in Carter v. Canada finds patients still experiencing intolerable suffering and finally throws in the towel, legalizing “physician aid in dying” in Canada.
