It continues: Quebec, maybe Canada, to falsify euthanasia death certificates

The right to falsify a death certificate when someone is killed will doubtless prove very convenient in days to come.

From MercatorNet:

In the first week of September, the Canadian Medical Association (CMA) was reported to be “seeking ‘clarity'” about whether or not physicians who perform euthanasia should misrepresent the medical cause of death, classifying death by lethal injection or infusion as death by natural causes. The question arose because the Quebec College of Physicians was said to be “considering recommending” that Quebec physicians who provide euthanasia should declare the immediate cause of death to be an underlying medical condition, not the administration of the drugs that actually kill the patient.

In fact, the Collège des médecins du Québec and pharmacy and nursing regulators in the province had already made the decision. In August, the three regulators issued a Practice Guide directing Quebec physicians to falsify death certificates in euthanasia cases. More.

Reality check: We are gradually moving toward consensual euthanasia irrespective of serious health issues, as in Belgium. Probably also, euthanasia of infants and children with disabilities. And, once it is commonplace and hard to prove … who knows?

One background issue is that, increasingly, the citizen is not worth very much to the government.

With the aging population, the growth of AI, and the growing unpopularity of industries that create jobs, far more citizens will be a source of expense, not benefit. Their value lies in the votes they can offer to progressive governments, but not much else.

Those who wish to protect themselves, will need to think long and hard how to do it. You cannot trust your doctor who is, after all, paid by the government in an all-compulsory health system. The need for alternative health care will grow precisely at the time there will be most agitation against it.

    Euthanasia of some of the existing population is essential to make room for all the refugees and other newcomers!

    Maybe someone needs to start a palliative care co-op independent of the public health care system.
    Rich people wouldn’t join, though since they already take care of their aged relatives with pillow parties.

      And call it what it is – a #NoLivesMatter backlash.

    Thanks judges. Yes you, You, useless sacks of shit. Simply because the nine pompous, elitist scumbags in the Social Engineering Court of Canada don’t value human life when it interferes with convenience, doesn’t make euthanasia right.

    I think all judges should have to have full disclosure upon taking office of exactly what politician’s dick they sucked to get their job. How about it Bev? Rosie?

    I don’t recall were I read it, but it seems a number of European countries that support assisted suicide are finding that many relatives are trying to get older folks to commit assisted suicide, so that THEY can get their inheritances sooner, and in other cases, just to get them out of the way.

      This is unexpected? It’s much easier to off Granny than to walk alongside her on her final journey. Though ask our offsprings – that walk, though at considerable cost to our family, was worthwhile and there are many treasured memories.

    I think someone needs to sign turdeau for a retoactive abortion.

      Who thinks Pierre was his real father?

        I’m guessing a rocker or a cuban dictator.

        If you look at his teeth it is very apparent that he is his father’s son.
        And I say that as a person who can’t fucking stand him.
        Or him.

    A policy historically attractive to socialists. The Nazi involuntary euthanasia programme Action T4 killed between 100,000 and 200,000 adults and children, and developed skills later used in killing Jews.

    This is a weird one from personal experience. Doctors killed (and that’s what they did) both my mother-in-law and my father, with a wink and a nod to the closest relative and an O.D. of morphine when the time came. Poor buggers were done anyway and suffering greatly. I am grateful to them, but they had to put “Congestive Cardiac Failure” on the D.C. to cover their ass. Because lawyers.
