WINNIPEG - A Manitoba woman won her battle Thursday for the right to die on her own terms, with the help of a doctor, before she could be completely consumed by a disease that was robbing her of control over her body.
Susan Griffiths, 72, died peacefully with some family members by her side at the Dignitas clinic in Zurich, Switzerland, a friend confirmed.
Switzerland is the only country that allows physician-assisted suicide for non-residents.
Griffiths did not go quietly, though. She went public with her story in the hope that Canada may change its laws.
