    In a long-awaited move, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government introduced legislation on Thursday that would legalize assisted suicide for people who are suffering intolerable pain from serious medical conditions.

    The option would be restricted to mentally competent adults with a “serious and incurable illness, disease or disability” who are “in an advanced state of irreversible decline in capability.” The legislation is likely to pass, according to The New York Times.

    “Every Canadian deserves access to timely and high-quality health care, including at the end of life,” Canadian Minister of Health Jane Philpott said in a press release.
