Last year, more than 10,000 people in Canada – astonishingly that's over three percent of all deaths there - ended their lives via euthanasia, an increase of a third on the previous year. And it's likely to keep rising: next year, Canada is set to allow people to die exclusively for mental health reasons.
High taxes, crazy public debt, and insufficient doctors leads to a deteriorating health care system. One way to release pressure is to delete these pesky patients.
Erin Smith said her 71-year-old father, Rod McNeill, went to an Ontario hospital after suffering a fall. A month later, he had been euthanized. She says the doctors responsible didn't even get hold of his medical records from his own physician. He was subsequently euthanized for a condition - end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease - that an autopsy shows he didn't have, she said.
Sheila Elson, the mother of a 25-year-old woman with cerebral palsy said a hospital doctor in Newfoundland actually told her she'd be 'selfish' if she didn't consider pursuing the euthanasia option.
Kill more, save more!
A 2017 Canadian study suggested medically-assisted dying could reduce health care spending in the country by as much as $137 million a year.
