Quick Takes – Normalizing Medical Homicide In Canada: By Commercials; By Mandated Doctor’s Recommendations; By Proactively Making The Life Of The Living Insufferable

     Another “quick takes” on items where there is too little to say to make a complete article, but is still important enough to comment on.

     The focus this time: Canada wants you to die.

     First, a little mood music:

     Carrying on…

Death, Rx

     Nothing says “buy or product/service” like waxing poetic about killing people via the new euphemism for euthanasia “Medical Assistance In Dying (MAID)”.

“Simons released an ad earlier this month glamorizing and watering down assisted suicide in an ad.

“The ad features Jennyfer Hatch, who used ‘medical assistance in dying (MAID) after dealing with complications and chronic pain associated with her diagnosis of Ehlers Danlos syndrome, a group of inherited disorders that affect the connective tissue supporting many body parts.’

“In the ad, Hatch shared ‘her thoughts on life, death and her quest to fill her final days “with beauty, with nature and with connection.”’”

     The ad:

     Not feeling suicidal? Here’s Canada’s doctors on orders from the government to suggest it to you!

“[A] guidance document produced by Canada’s providers of medically assisted death states that doctors have a professional obligation to bring up MAID as an option, when it’s “medically relevant” and the person is likely eligible, as part of the informed consent process.

“There is no legal restriction on who can raise the subject of MAID with someone with a grievous and irremediable illness, disease or disability, provided the intent is not to induce, persuade or convince the person to request an assisted death, says the Canadian Association of MAID Assessors and Providers.

“But some ethicists argue that introducing death as a ‘treatment option,’ without the person suggesting it first, is seriously problematic, especially within the expanding realm of MAID, and that people could be unduly influenced to choose to have their life intentionally ended, given the power dynamics of the doctor-patient relationship.”

     Still want to live? They’ll just make your life miserable until you cave.

“Hearing loss, depression, and indeed any physical or mental disability is considered a reason for murdering a person through assisted suicide. And if the idea doesn’t occur to you on your own, the medical professionals and even counselors will helpfully suggest offing yourself without prompting. In some cases they may even refuse a patient care as an incentive to wish for death.

“They can’t just kill you without permission, but they sure can make you want to die.

“That is the case with our latest victim of the Canadian health care system, Roger Foley.

“Roger is suffering from a debilitating degenerative disease, and his future is not bright no matter what the doctors do. He is an expensive patient to care for, and he doesn’t have deep pockets to pay for that care. The government does, although it will never see any return on an investment in keeping Roger alive and functioning. A broken arm or a heart attack survivor can return to work and start paying taxes again, but Roger’s economic value to the state is entirely negative.

“Best kill him, then.

“So that is what the Ontario government through its hospital administrators are pushing for, by pressuring Roger to choose death over continued life.”
