Canada opens door to expanding assisted dying

The Canadian government on Monday proposed broadening a 2016 law on medically assisted death to include for the first time people who were not in immediate risk of dying. The bill opens the door to allowing Canadians with degenerative illnesses to seek medically-assisted death. The bill has cross-party support.

... whilst shrugging off their duty to provide the healthcare that would reduce the need for this.

For decades now pro life advocates have been saying it was gonna come to this only to be ignored i would be willing to bet money that by 2030 the debate is gonna be weather or not 16 year olds need their parents permission to seek doctor assisted suicide for depression. I know what your gonna say “that’s impossible” “that will never happen” that’s also what they said about The government kicking in doors to get guns (Virgina any day now and several state’s in isolated form already) drag queens having access to your kids in school (several states) and being called racist for wanting illegal immigrants deported (see the entire last 3 years) face it people this shit never just stops at a logical place it always moves from one stage to another until it eventually reaches a point of immorality.

I am in favor of this with sufficient safeguards. I would want the option myself in those circumstances.

Very surprised that the Canadians, with their low population numbers, are in favor of reducing their numbers further. Especially at today's technology and science levels; there is more hope now of these diseases being treated and corrected than at any time previously. A healthcare revolution is not too far away.

What a cynical world. Kill them off faster so we don't have to use any more resources on them, eh?
