Canada Euthanized 10,000 Citizens Last Year

“Canada, a country that prides itself on its open-mindedness and tolerance, has the most permissive rules on euthanasia in the world–and the results have been frankly terrifying. Last year, more than 10,000 people in Canada–astonishingly that’s over three percent of all deaths there–ended their lives via euthanasia, an increase of a third on the previous year. Alan Nichols, for instance, was a 61-year-old British Columbian with a history of depression and other medical issues–though none of them life-threatening–who was hospitalized in 2019 over fears he might be suicidal. Although he asked his brother, Gary, to ‘bust him out’ as soon as possible, within a month of going into hospital he’d submitted a request to be euthanized. He listed only one health condition–hearing loss–as the reason, but that was enough to satisfy his keepers and he was killed. ‘Alan was basically put to death,’ said his brother Gary. Erin Smith said her 71-year-old father, Rod McNeill, went to an Ontario hospital after suffering a fall. A month later, he was euthanized for a condition–end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease–that an autopsy shows he didn’t have, Smith said. Canada is set to allow people to die exclusively for mental health reasons. Starting March 2023, Canada’s medically assisted suicide eligibility will expand to people who do not have a physical ailment. Canada is also considering extending euthanasia to ‘mature’ minors–children under 18 who meet the same requirements as adults. Doctors and human rights campaigners say Canada’s easy-come easy-go euthanasia laws are particularly dangerous for disabled people who are being ‘devalued’ as a result. Professor Tim Stainton, director of the Canadian Institute for Inclusion and Citizenship at the University of British Columbia, described Canada’s law as probably the biggest existential threat to disabled people since the Nazis’ program in Germany in the 1930s’. Being compared to the Nazis is surely the last thing that Justin Trudeau and his achingly woke allies would expect to ever hear but as they turn their country into an assisted suicide Wild West, they are losing any claim to common humanity.”
