September 24, 2019
CWN Editor's Note: Public-health officials in Nova Scotia have ruled that St. Martha’s Regional Hospital must offer “assessments” for patients planning assisted suicide—although the actual euthanasia will take place at another institution. The hospital, once operated by the Sisters of St. Martha, is now controlled by regional health officials, under the terms of a “mission assurance agreement” that, according to the religious order, protects the institution’s Catholic identity.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
