I love Justice McKenzie's word. It was a shining moment for the disability community. That was in 1983 however. What has happened since? Would a case like Stephen Dawson come through the courts again? I believe that the doctors would make the decisions, quietly, through the night. Can we truly believe that consent laws exist for the disabled? I don't think so. My daughter died years ago and I am still wondering where the final records and the lethal quantities of narcotics withdrawn went to. Which lives to doctors consider not worthy of life? where is the threshold? I am sad to say that it does not seem to me that Stephen would pass the assessment.See article attached regarding working definition of futility. http://www.cmaj.ca/cgi/content/full/177/10/1201
