Canada has some of the most permissive euthanasia laws in the world, with one recent case involving a 61-year-old man who was sent a euthanasia request by doctors because he was suffering from hearing loss and mild depression.
As Canada continues to expand its liberal euthanasia laws, plans to start euthanizing infants are also gaining traction.
Canadian euthanasia laws were originally passed to grant terminally ill patients an option to end their life before they die in pain, however the requirements to qualify for the program have been loosened dramatically over time.
Canada’s medical assistance in dying laws allow almost anyone who can claim some form of hardship or disability to receive physician-assisted suicide, regardless of how minor those disabilities might be.
In a recently reported horror story from The Associated Press, Alan Nichols, 61, was successfully killed after a quick one-month waiting period as he was suffering from hearing loss.
Besides suffering bouts of depression over the deterioration of his hearing, Nichols was otherwise healthy.
However, Nichols’ brother claimed doctors railroaded the 61-year-old into ending his life.
Nichols’ family said that hospital staff helped him request euthanasia and pushed him to do it, a story that has been repeated many times by other disabled or sick Canadians.
It is now so easy for a person to be euthanized in Canada, that allegations are emerging that the Canadian government-run socialized healthcare system is now euthanizing the country’s sick and poor people rather than treating them.
Recently, Live Action News reported that the Quebec College of Physicians has made a recommendation that infants who experience “grave malformations” where life expectancy is “basically nil” should be eligible for euthanasia under Canada’s Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD) laws.
