I try not to allow these "Bits" to be overly controversial. I want to be informative, helpful, inspiring, and a "bit" funny.
But as I sit here, reading how the radiologist who performed the "liberation" procedure in a Vancouver hospital is now in hot water, I can't help but think...
Professionals who perform the Liberation procedure are "Assisting Living"... not "Assisting Suicide".
So why is the Liberation Procedure illegal in Canada?
"Liberation" is sought because it increases the quality of life of a person living with MS.
Temporary or permanent, we do not know, but to be able to live outside of the "fog", outside of the "fatigue", to feel your limbs, or potentially walk unassisted for even a short amount of time is within our reach...and would be a dream come true.
