Broadening euthanasia in Canada

From some desperate, non-government-funded group that represents your right to live*:

Action Item: Contact the Senate Immediately

The Bill C-14 to legalize euthanasia in Canada has passed through the House of Commons and is now in the hands of the Senate. The Bill is being prepared for final vote possibly by the end of this week.

Despite some hope (based on the recommendations of the Senate Committee) that they might tighten up the language of the Bill to make it somewhat safer, late last night the Senate voted to amend the Bill and delete the requirement that a person’s death be “reasonably foreseeable”. This broadens the eligibility for “MAID” to include anyone, not just the dying.

Another amendment is supposed to be coming forward, from Conservative Senate leader Claude Carignan which would require an additional safeguard, a judge to sign off on any application for assisted dying by those who are not close to death.

LifeCanada is asking that all Canadians write to the Senate immediately.

Reality check: We are all “the fetus” now. And we have only the pro life movement’s angrily defended, endless parade of platform losers to defend us.

      Yes, they need money for the refugees that are future voters so it’s better to tell the seniors born here to canadian Parents to hurry up and DIE already you selfish bastard or VET .

        They are trying to speed up the genocide. It is too slow to just let us die naturally.

      Death panels. Seems Mrs. Palin wasn’t as crazy as everyone on the left thought.

        Remember when they went after Palin because the campaign paid for her clothing?
        And yet Hillary is wearing ten thousand dollar Romulan clothing and no Democrat bats an eye while she talks about income disparity.

          I love the “Romulan clothing” line! Very good! I just thought Hillary had become an upholstery project. It is far more incisive to reflect upon her Romulan fashion sense. It says so much more about her as a……life form found on Earth. 😉

      Now, even slightly sad people can be offed. Think of all the treatment costs saved!

      • Ron MacDonald

        Every time a Liberal euthanizes a Canadian senior they save on health care, CPP and OAS costs.

        • Exactly.

          Soon, they will not sell euthanasia as “merciful”. They are getting people used to the idea of it being cost-cutting.

      Watch your mouth! In Sunny Ways Canada, there’s probably a government funded app for that.

    Killing them off was not what Ghandi had in mind.

      You would LOVE the song entitled “NOBODY GIVES A FUCK”. It appeared on the last album recorded by Greek singer Demis Roussos (R.I.P.), and features an extensive clip of Ghandi speaking. Truly an INCREDIBLE STATEMENT of a song – despite the foul language – sung by a man who had seen it all……….
