A Canadian doctor who’s personally euthanized more than 400 people said she helped kill a man who was previously deemed unsuitable for assisted suicide.

Ellen Wiebe, a doctor who works with Dying With Dignity Canada, boasted in a seminar for physicians working in assisted suicide about the time she treated a patient who did not qualify for the end of life service.

A Medical Assistance In Dying (MAID) assessor had rejected the unnamed man because he did not have a serious illness or ‘the capacity to make informed decisions about his own personal health.’

But in time, the man met with Wiebe, who flew him to Vancouver after clearing him, and euthanized him.

At a 2020 event, Wiebe said, “It’s the most rewarding work we’ve ever done.”

A colleague of Wiebe, Obstetrician Stefanie Green, also divulged that she has helped 300 people die in Canada’s MAID program.

Green describes both her work helping women give birth and people end their lives as “deliveries.”

In 2021, 10,064 people died using the MAID program and 486 died using California’s assisted suicide program.

MAID has received scrutiny because of the growing number of people seeking assisted suicide for poverty and homelessness or mental anguish, rather than the traditional use for terminally-ill patients seeking a painless death.

Dying with Dignity Canada tweeted a quote from Obstetrician Stefanie Green:

“This work is really a privilege. It exposes me to some really extraordinary people going through extraordinary events, asking me to do extraordinary things with them.”#TweetableMoment from @DocSGreen in “Here and Now: What it’s like to provide MAID in Canada.”

Dying with Dignity Canada tweeted, “‘MAID for mental disorders will be handled on a case-by-case basis. The fear of someone being given access to MAID even when they don’t want it, or change their mind, is unfounded.’”
