Nova Scotia case continues. Katherine is trying to prevent the wrongful euthanasia death of her husband.

The Nova Scotia court case concerning a woman who is trying to prevent her husband of 48-years from dying by euthanasia returned to court today.

Katherine's husband was approved for (MAiD) euthanasia even though he received conflicting assessments for MAiD (euthanasia). Katherine says he is not dying and is delusional about his medical condition.

The Canadian Press report on the trial stated:
The woman is appealing last month’s decision by Nova Scotia Supreme Court Justice Peter Rosinski who rejected her request for a temporary injunction against her husband.

Her lawyers told the three-member panel of judges today that the woman has been given power of attorney by her 83-year-old husband and has an obligation under the law to step in.

They say there were conflicting medical reports about his health condition and about his capacity to seek an assisted death.
Katherine's lawyer, Hugh Scher stated that there is no other way to cross examine the medical experts who assessed Katherine's husband.

According to the Canadian Press, the lawyer for Katherine's husband, Philip Romney, argued that:
a proper medical assessment was made under the law and it’s not the duty of the appeal court, or any court, to act as a substitute for the opinion of medical experts.

Romney says the medical assistance in dying process would “fall apart” if the decisions of doctors and nurse practitioners were subject to court review. He said medical professionals would decline to participate in the procedure if their decisions were systematically questioned by the courts.
The Chief Justice stated that the decision would be made quickly.

I support this man in his constitutional right to die a dignified and peaceful death of his own choosing.

The gaslighting by the wife towards her husband is very disturbing.

I quote:

"But an unlicensed doctor Katherine knows as “the son of a church friend” told her he believes X is a hypochondriac with severe anxiety. Katherine submitted this opinion in an affidavit, but Supreme Court Justice Peter Rosinski says he gave it “minimal weight” next to the opinions of the doctors who examined and diagnosed X in a professional capacity."

Why does this blog refuse to mention this fact?
