Euthanasia Is Liberalism’s EndgameCanadian Minister of Justice David Lametti recently provoked outrage among his country’s political and media class after he drew an equivalence between the so-called medical assistance in dying (MAID) policy and suicide. Speaking on a radio program, Lametti said that since certain people were going to commit suicide anyway, the government may as well ensure that it is done in a more “humane way.” Proponents of euthanasia protested that the equivalence was not only false, but insulting.
Yet the way the euthanasia regime in Canada is evolving would suggest that we are, in fact, heading toward a situation like the one Lametti suggested: that is, state-enabled at-will suicide.
MAID is already accessible in all provinces to those whose illnesses are considered terminal, but as of March 2023, it will also be available to those afflicted with “mental illness” as their sole underlying condition. Additionally, “mature minors” will be eligible: that is, children over the age of 12 who are deemed fit by medical professionals to make the decision to choose euthanasia.
I posted this after seeing that Canada will let children as young as 12 choose Euthanasia. It would be hard to imagine being a parent of a child who would choose Euthanasia and be powerless to stop it.
What about the studies that prove a child's brain isn't fully developed until age 21(?)
If they can't legally drive, HOW can they legally make this decision???
This is unchecked insanity, and evil!!!
