Family of Margaret Bentlley, an 82 years old former nurse is enraged at the action of Abbotsford nursing home staff, who are spoon feeding her. Margaret is an Alzheimer patient.
Margaret's daughter and son-in-law have filed a lawsuit on last Tuesday saying that her mother never wanted to be the test case ever. She said that her mother had completed the legal document of `right to die' saying that she would like to die with dignity.
She added that her mother had written in her legal document that she would not like to be kept alive with the help of artificial methods, if there were no possibilities of her recovery. Margaret's daughter has alleged that her mother never wanted to be in the public light.
"I feel terrible that this part of her life has been made public, but on the other hand, my mom would want to see this issue addressed. So my hope is that we can move from a place of sadness to one of a lasting legacy," said Katherine Hammond, Bentley's daughter.
She said that health providers this way are disrespecting the law and her mother's wish.
This case may become a case of precedent setting; therefore the court of Vancouver has accepted the lawsuit filed by Hammond as pro bono case.
