Canadian lawmakers are considering a new assisted suicide bill that would legalize euthanasia and shut the door on so-called "suicide tourism."
The legislation, presented Thursday, would give residents and Canadians who are "suffering intolerably" and who face a "foreseeable" death the right to die.
Patients would have to undergo assessments by two doctors and observe a 15-day "reflection period" before ending their lives.
