A chilling report out of Canada that has failed to get the attention it deserves. Assisted Suicide is gaining more acceptance here in the States as well, and who is included as a potential participant has become a horror in Canada. Mental health now will be included as well as children without parental consent. Laura Ingraham had a disturbing report and is included..
Already Oregon, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Maine, New Jersey, New Mexico, Vermont, Washington state and Washington, D.C., have approved assisted suicide all with residency requirements.
Anything to lessen the values of a a civilized society. A reminder during the halcyon days of Obama when the “death panels” were so aptly described. Otherwise known as the Independent Payment Advisory Board.
George Bernard Shaw: Justify Your Existence
Here we go:
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.”
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.
As Adolf Hitler consolidated his power at home in anticipation of war, he moved not only against Jews, Sinti, and Roma but also against those Aryans whom he considered “unworthy of life”—people with epilepsy, alcoholism, birth defects, hearing loss, mental illnesses, and personality disorders, as well as those who had vision loss or developmental delays or who even suffered from certain orthopedic problems. Hitler viewed them as “marginal human beings” who had to make a case for their own survival at a time when the nation was preparing for war.
The first to be eliminated were too young to speak on their own behalf. In fall 1938, the parents of a severely disabled infant petitioned Hitler for the right to kill their child. He granted the petition and saw in the request an opportunity to encourage what he called “mercy killings” or “euthanasia.”

Earlier this year I reported:
August 1, 2022
Children are introduced into the medical killing fields by Canadian Virtual Hospice with its Medical Assistance in Dying Activity Book, described as being for children ages 6–12. In it, the child is taught how a person is killed during euthanasia:
The three medicines work like this: The first medicine makes the person feel very relaxed and fall asleep. They may yawn or snore or mumble.
The second medicine causes a “coma.” A coma looks like sleep but is much deeper than regular sleep. The person will not wake up or be bothered by noise or touch.
The third medicine makes the person’s lungs stop breathing and then their heart stops beating. Because of the coma, the person does not notice this happening and it does not hurt. When their heart and lungs stop working, their body dies. It will not start working again. This often happens in just a few minutes, but sometimes (rarely) it can take hours.
And there are activities for the child preparing them for witnessing the event.
Medical assistance in dying (MAID) has been available in Canada since 2016
Bill C-7 would allow individuals seeking MAID to apply solely on the basis of a mental disorder. Prior to the bill’s passage, MAID eligibility was based on having a “grievous and irremediable medical condition,” according to a report from the Canadian government on the practice.
Creighton School of Medicine professor Charles Camosy said Wednesday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” the bill would allow “mature minors” to be euthanized by state doctors without the consent of their parents.
Camosy argued that the MAID practice exists for several groups already.
“We’ve got the homeless, we talked about that last time. The poor. The disabled. Those with chronic pain. And then right before coming on, I researched the physicians group in Quebec that wants to kill newborn infants. That’s what’s coming next,” he told host Tucker Carlson.
The medical humanities professor said health care has been “hyper-secularized” in recent years and is based on “cost-benefit analysis.”
One can be assured that Seniors will be next on the list. The Cost-Benefit Analysis that is being taught now in medical schools.
A refresher from the past of what our Marxists are about here is the USA. Be especially concerned with the so-called Inflation Reduction Bill. The cost reduction in pharmaceuticals is fraught with the potential abuse in denying expensive drugs with a new “Independent Drug Advisory Board” being set up. Earlier posts:
The main thing, though, is the strengthened role of and target for the Independent Payment Advisory Board. This can sound like hocus-pocus — but it’s not. You have people who actually know about health care and health costs setting priorities for spending, within a budget; in effect, you have an institutional setup which forces Medicare to find ways to say no.
Recall our earlier post: Kidney Patients being told to accept death and forgo dialysis
”It was meant to keep young and middle-aged people alive and productive. Instead, many of the patients who take advantage of the law are old and have other medical problems”. Take advantage?
The best the swamp has to offer.
