VIDEO: B.C. MS patient wants Supreme Court ruling on assisted-suicide
Elayne Shapray has suffered from MS for over 30 years
A Vancouver woman who suffers from severe Multiple sclerosis says she wants the Supreme Court to rule on the legality of assisted-suicide, and that she will be present when the BC Civil Liberties Association takes the issue back to the country’s highest court.
Elayne Shapray has had MS for over 30 years, but a ruling earlier this month that upheld a ban on assisted-suicide in B.C. has left her wondering about what her future holds.
Shapray says she will be a highly visual supporter of a new effort by the BCCLA to have the SCC rule on assisted-suicide.
