Quebec Doctor Warns Euthanasia No Longer a ‘Last Resort’

August 17, 2023Breitbart.com reports: “Dr. Michel Bureau, head of Quebec’s End of Life Care Commission, told the Canadian Press on Tuesday that Medical Assistance In Dying (MAID) has become so common in the province that he fears suicide is no longer seen as a ‘last resort.’

MAID is Canada’s preferred euphemism for physician-assisted suicide. Canada has one of the most liberal – and arguably most aggressive – euthanasia programs in the world. MAID was supposed to expand to include patients with mental illnesses but no physical ailments this year, but that proved to be a step even euthanasia-happy Canada was reluctant to take, so it has been postponed until at least 2024.

As things stand in Canada, MAID is no longer reserved for people with terminal illnesses or unbearable pain, and there is pressure to begin offering it to minors. Doctors are encouraged to bring up euthanasia as an option before patients ask for it.

Bureau said these measures have produced an environment in which Quebecers no longer view MAID as an ‘exceptional treatment,’ but rather one that has become ‘very frequent.’ In fact, Bureau estimated that seven percent of all deaths in Quebec will be doctor-assisted suicides by the end of 2023…”  (These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:  A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,  An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,  A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren– Proverbs 6:16-19 [emphasis mine].  Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,  Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:  Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them – Romans 1:29-32.  These barbarians will soon …be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:  Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched – Mark 9:43, 44.  See the next report.)

Canada: Suicidal Patient Says Clinician Asked If She Had Considered Euthanasia

August 14, 2023Breitbart.com reports: “A 37-year-old Vancouver woman named Kathrin Mentler told Canada’s Globe and Mail on Wednesday that when she visited Vancouver General Hospital in June to seek help for chronic depression and suicidal thoughts, a clinician told her to consider euthanasia.

According to Mentler, the clinician told her there were ‘no beds’ and ‘no availability’ because Canada’s socialist health care system is ‘broken,’ and then asked if she had ‘considered MAID.’ 

MAID stands for Medical Assistance in Dying, Canada’s preferred euphemism for ‘assisted suicide,’ the killing of suicidal people. Mentler, who had never heard the term before, thought the clinician was advising her to hire a housekeeper.

Mentler said she was shocked that the hospital would suggest a person grappling with thoughts of suicide go ahead and kill themselves with medical assistance.

‘I very specifically went there that day because I didn’t want to get into a situation where I would think about taking an overdose of medication,’ she said…”
