American citizen Linda McNall was recently sentenced to 8 months in Alberta, Canada for helping her seriously ill mother commit suicide. The suicide of her mother was a part of a mother/daughter suicide pact gone awry. McNall survived the suicide attempt and was arrested after showing up at a nearby Canadian hospital.
“The story of Ms McNall is distressing on several levels,” stated Ms. Farkas. “At the most basic level it is the story of a person struggling against depression and losing that battle. The decision to commit suicide is a very difficult one. You are so hopeless and despairing, you have a sense that only death can bring you peace and happiness. To survive a suicide attempt is miraculous. But instead of being met with appreciation that she was still alive, Ms McNall was arrested, judged and then dumped back into society without any long term emotional supports or life-line to mental help.”
