Canadian Doctors Refuse Treatment, Let Man Die of Bladder Infection


(LifeSiteNews) — A Quebec woman filed a complaint with provincial authorities alleging doctors at the region’s only hospital refused to treat her husband’s bladder infection because he had cancer.

Herman Morin had a prognosis of more than a year to live and would have begun chemotherapy this month, Mary Lucille Durocher told LifeSiteNews.

But Morin, 65, died five days after he was admitted to Shawville Hospital, according to the complaint Durocher filed July 31 to the Service Quality and Complaints Commissioner (CISSS) of Outaouais.

Dr. Stanislav Drachek told Durocher they would not treat Morin’s bladder infection because “they knew that Herman had cancer in the bone and it was spreading to the liver,” she says in the document. CONTINUE
