In the News: Physician-Assisted Suicide

HeinOnline, In the News, Legal Research Guides jstanley


On Friday, February 6th, Canada’s supreme court overturned the ban of physician-assisted suicide in the country. The court said the law denies people the right “to make decisions concerning their bodily integrity and medical care” and leaves them “to endure intolerable suffering.”

The ruling includes several provisions:

  • Patients must be competent adults who clearly consent to terminating their life.
  • They must be suffering from “a grievous and irremediable medical condition … that causes enduring suffering that is intolerable.”
  • Physicians cannot be compelled to assist those who want to die.

Canada isn’t the only one looking to pass legislation on this topic.

HeinOnline Libraries Continue to Grow

HeinOnline jstanley

When HeinOnline first begin in 2000, early institutional subscribers saw the value that online page-images brought to the legal research community and encouraged Hein to add content beyond the scope of historical legal periodicals.

As a result, Hein expanded its initial goal and HeinOnline now delivers more and more content that is needed by today’s legal researchers. Today, HeinOnline contains more than fifty library modules, and subscribers in more than 175 countries enjoy online access to more than 100 million pages of legal research material that in many instances is only available online in HeinOnline.

The true value of a HeinOnline subscription is not only in the exact page images in a searchable PDF format.
