An assisted suicide bill in Canada -- expected to become a law soon -- excludes foreigners from traveling to Canada to die, the BBC website reports today (April 14, 2016).
People with mental illness and psychiatric disorders also are excluded.
The bill -- which is backed by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau -- must be voted on by both the Canadian House and Senate.
It seeks to protect "the conscience rights of medical practitioners," said Canadian Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould. She refused to answer why foreigners would be excluded from assisted suicides.
