Doctor grants final wish of
Canadian right-to-die activist

THE WASHINGTON POST
TORONTO - A 43-year-old Ca-
nadian woman who turned her debili-
tating illness into a crusade for the right
to die, apparently has had the last word
about the way her life would end.
Sue Rodriguez, who in 1991 was
found to have the degenerative nerve
condition known as Lou Gehrig's dis-
ease, died Saturday at her home in
Victoria, British Columbia, according
to police and Svend Robinson, a close
friend and member of Parliament who
has championed laws permitting phy-
sician-assisted suicide.
Svend said yesterday that he was
with Rodriguez when a doctor he de-
clined to identify arrived and carried
out her wishes. Royal Canadian
Mounted Police have announced an
investigation into her death - and
Robinson's role in it - and said an
autopsy would be performed to deter-
mine if she died by lethal injection.
Choking back tears as he recounted

the events of Saturday afternoon,
Robinson told reporters that Rodriguez
made her final plans a month ago. He
said she had shared a last meal Friday
evening with her husband and 9-year-
old son, who were absent during
Rodriguez's final hours the next day.
"She was serene and calm through-
out," Robinson said.
Declaring that "the present state of
the law is profoundly cruel," Robinson
recalled a question Rodriguez put to a
parliamentary committee two years
ago: "If I cannot give consent to my
own death, then whose body is this?"
The death of Rodriguez is likely to
stoke the national debate that was fu-
eled by her campaign to end her life.
Canadian anti-euthanasia laws mirror
those being tested in Michigan by Jack
Kevorkian, known as the "suicide doc-
tor," and other right-to-die activists.
The last judicial decision against
Rodriguez came from the Supreme
Court of Canada last September. It

ruled by a vote of 5-4 that it had no
power to grant her a legal assisted
suicide until Parliament rewrote the
pertinent laws.
In a statement prepared for release
after her death, Rodriguez said: "I hope
that my efforts will not have been in
vain and that the ministerofjustice will
introduce legislation into Parliament
soon so that terminally ill people have
another option available...."
The federal minister ofjustice, Allan
Rock, said in the House of Commons
yesterday that the government supports
a full parliamentary review of Cana-
dian euthanasia laws. Prime Minister
Jean Chretien, an aide said yesterday,
favors an open vote, free of party disci-
pline, on any enabling legislation in-
troduced in the House of Commons.
Calling Rodriguez a martyr to their
cause,activists inCanadaand the United
States praised her single-mindedness
in the face of repeated legal setbacks
and physical deterioration.
