[Perspectives] Ellen Wiebe: pro-choice doctor providing peaceful deaths

Ellen Wiebe is not what you would expect from a physician who has spent her career ensuring women’s right to choose abortion and now, in her renaissance, providing medical assistance for people who are dying. Having faced down death threats, endured claims that she is a murderer, and provided 40 years of service to Canadian family medicine and research, you would think she would call herself a fighter, an activist, certainly a trailblazer. But, no. Wiebe rejects those labels and instead describes herself as just doing what is best for her patients.
