FIRST READING: Canada is getting real comfortable with killing its disabled. Ontario hospital staff appear to pressure a patient to opt for euthanasia in new secretly recorded audio.
More than 10,000 Canadians received a medically-assisted death in 2021: report
Canada is NOT As Advertised. MAiD Is Eugenics.
n their rhetoric the proponents of Canada’s assisted suicide argue that the state should not impede anyone’s right to choose to die.
There are three deliberate falsehoods in their assertion.
The first is that MAiD is a negative freedom – meaning that the state agree not to interfere in a person’s ending of their own life.
In truth, MAiD is a positive freedom. The state is providing death as a service.
This obfuscation of the state’s role in causing the death, not merely failing to inhibiting it, contributes to the lack of critical examination it receives. As a result, even the people who would oppose capital punishment in instances where the murderer confessed and requested it, remain silent about MAiD.
MAiD is fully covered under Canada’s healthcare system.
Today, any adult with a serious illness, disease or disability can seek help in dying.
Canadian health minister Jean-Yves Duclos said the country’s euthanasia law “recognizes the rights of all persons … as well as the inherent and equal value of every life.”
Theresia Degener, a professor of law and disability studies at the Protestant University for Applied Sciences in northwestern Germany, said allowing euthanasia based exclusively on disability was a clear human rights violation.
“The implication of (Canada’s) law is that a life with disability is automatically less worth living and that in some cases, death is preferable,” said Degener.
Canada’s New Euthanasia Laws Carry Upsetting Na*i-Era Echoes, Warns Expert
Canada’s extremely liberal euthanasia laws, which, next year, are set to be extended to include people suffering from mental health conditions and potentially minors, have been slammed for being reminiscent of the way the Nazis dealt with people with disabilities by a leading academic in the field.
In an article published by the Associated Press last week, Tim Stainton director of the Canadian Institute for Inclusion and Citizenship at the University of British Columbia said the country’s uniquely permissive euthanasia laws were, “probably the biggest existential threat to disabled people since the Nazis’ program in Germany in the 1930s.”
The AP article additionally detailed the story of 61-year-old Alan Nichols who had a history of hearing loss and depression and, according to Nichols’ brother, was unlawfully “put to death” by the Canadian state in 2019.
