Euthanasia in Canada: Death to granny is just the start

Binks WebelfRebel Blogger

Canada is about to join the ranks of tax-funded medical murderers. The slope has never been more slippery, and now it's being greased up even more.

The 20th century witnessed an unprecedented intrusion and invasion of the state into more and more areas of basic human existence -- conception, birth, youth, education, speech, thought, marriage, reproduction & child-rearing, middle age, doctoring, sickness, old age, and death.

Progressives have short-sightedly celebrated their "victories" over the older moral, legal, and religious consensus, at the same time as a giant shadow grows higher behind them: the all-powerful dehumanizing über-state.

As a former parish pastor, I've attended hundreds of deathbeds, done hundreds of funerals, counseled and comforted the dying, their families, friends, and loved ones.

Death can be scary-- so is suffering, and uncertainty, and the fear of dying alone, or in great pain, or uncomforted, or being kept alive by machines just because machines can do it. Believe me, I really do get it.

RIP, My Father

My own father was a doctor, researcher, and pathologist. He'd made it clear he wanted no heroic measures whilst dying.

Unfortunately, he actually died entering the local ER, so they did what they should have done, and brought him back, and filled him with tubes and IVs and all the life-saving things.

Once revived, he made clear by weakly tugging on the tubes what his wishes were. After some long-distance talk amongst his sons, there was a meeting with the doctors as to his express wishes. He'd had a chain of strokes. His body was weak, and massively infected. The special drugs he needed for lung enzymes were barely working anymore.

He'd already died once -- this was his time to return to God.

Out came the tubes.

He'd lost his speech with the last stroke, but his relief was evident in smiles and glad looks. He had a chance to hold hands with everybody who could be there.

My little brother shaved him up, put him in one of his beloved famous Hawai'ian shirts (his mother was born & raised there), and in his glory, he had his happy farewell, with love and prayers all around him.

The lung enzyme medication was gradually withdrawn, and he fell into a deepening sleep, then into death. RIP.


Danger, Will Robinson!

He'd always said to me that for modern medicine, death was seen as a failure, as something defeating medical powers, so extreme measures were often not about the person, but about the medico-technological imperative to fight death as if it was a disease, as if people should never die, and medicine was the answer to that age-old and abiding question-mark hovering over death.

Now, we're hastening towards forcing death hand.

What, progress?

Humans are flawed beings, with great powers, mixed motives, and a nearly comical blindness for results and consequences.

If we let healthcare bean-counters and committees of the well meaning -- or ill meaning-- in Canada gang up with people who just want to be rid of themselves or of people who are nuisances, then we will surely and tragically follow the inhuman path of the medical murderers in Belgium, Holland, and many of our own Canadian hospitals -- only it will be official, and, increasingly, taken out of the hands of the patient, or their family. ITYS.


Adolf Told Us So

Playing God never ends well, even if we think the law of regrettable and "unseen" consequences won't apply to us, not this time, only all those other times.

The many many dead and silenced victims of euthanasia in Europe over the last 40+ years have fulfilled Hitler's dream that only the strong (and medically inexpensive) deserve life.

The rest are useless eaters, and untermenschen -- or in the case of Chinese medical totalitarianism, a rather profitable source of fresh organs.

Even more tragically, every new case of medical suicide/ murder in the news by someone trying to ease their pain or death plays right into the hands of (a) the managers, who want death to be as easy as modern abortion, and (b) those who want to think that death is a final end, that there is no God -- or, that he forgives anything, even unrepented suicide or medical murder, because He's a nice old dude. Kill away! Killy kill killy kill kill!

We Are The Supers

No worries -- it's all good. We know better. We're so very smart, and powerful. We will fix all the problems, and, quite frankly, God and his merciful rules and whiny followers be damned.

You well-meaners and bean-counters and death-dealers and lawyers and medical murderers promoting "Good Death" are worse than the totalitarians and compromised medical people of the Third Reich or The Glorious Soviet Revolution-- or of Belgium and Holland over the last generation and a half.

Only this -- we already have their horrible example documented & set plainly before us, and yet we have chosen evil: to ignore all limits and warnings and dangerous precedents, to follow that dark path of mercilessness and slaughter and innocents silenced.

For the dark gods of 'progress' will demand ever more sacrifices.. even you, or your friends & family. Watch for it.


Attention Please, Useless Eaters!

So: all you cripples, feebs, gimps, cretins, geezers, disabled, depressoids, expensively ill, retards, comatoids, disgruntled, end-stage illness, politically awkward, too-slowly-dying: they'll have a little list.

Alongside the Boomers making a hash out of choosing "good" deaths as much as they've made a mess out of life and everything else over the last 70+ years.

Thus, we who live with chronic health problems, disability or the weaknesses of old age may well end up as living sacrifices to our bold new world of managing everything, handy organ harvesting, big state everywhere, and playing God -- even though we are not divine, or good, or infallible, and yet think we can exercise coercive and death-dealing powers over the weak and innocent and dying.

It used to be said that the true measure of any society was how it treated the most vulnerable; the Bible enjoined mercy and charity towards the widows and fatherless and hungry, and the stranger in the land.

It was easy to be kind when the world economy was booming -- but how much more important now that our world financial bust threatens everything -- including our over-burdened health-care, and the aging Baby-Boomer wave now approaching it.


Heavenly Speaking

Suicide via medical murder puts all the immortal souls involved at risk of mortal sin and eternal consequences not to be imagined. Suffering, uncertainty, need, and fear -- even death itself -- are not the worst things possible, after all.

Medical suicide/ medical murder is ultimately our crisis of faith in a God who redeems life, and even suffering, dying, and death.

Suffering in love and patience and prayer is a lesson we need very much to relearn, in the reconversion to God which our rotting society needs, lest the lights go down in the West in unbelief and death and ignorance.


Saith Teh Binks: No!

As for me? Dear Euthanasiacs: Mind Your Own Damned Business, and hands off with your deadly and bloodthirsty and false "compassion." You bastards.

Don't even try to tell me that my life -- or that of any suffering or sick person -- is just not worth living, that our quality of life is too low, or that I've lived a good long life, or that some illnesses are rather costly, or that you can't imagine how terribly miserable I might be, and you'd not want to suffer any of it. Go Wah yourself somewhere else.

I was born and will live and die a free man of the West, and my God-given life and destined God-given death are between me, God, and my loved ones and friends. How about you?

Randy Williams – I disagree! Abortion should be the last thing offered, since it is the murder of an unborn child. Just think of the implications that has for humanity. The generations lost, with the murder of one life. Life should be promoted first and foremost, as murder is a sin.

The thing you stated is really not true. Stating that the 1st phase was abortion is really miss leading. First of all that statement comes across as forced abortion. It is not! It’s a right an individual makes for themselves. For what ever reason they think, its up to them not you to decide. But if you feel that you have that right to deny them theirs, then I or anybody else should have the right to deny yours at anytime we wish! Sounds fain right!? So abortion is not a global conspiracy as you think. It would be if it was forced upon you right? But it is not. Also if what you think might be true, don’t you think it would be easier to sterilize all women at the appropriate age. You know, forced sterilization! But again that is jot the case here, but you go on and state your false truths, but only people like you will believe it. But if you really do feel that you have the right to deny others, will you be the first to publicly state that you are willing to give up you rights to anything!

With all do respect to the loss of your family member and my condolences! I have to say that the status quo is not acceptable! Surely in a civilized country we can come up with a compromise don’t you think. Sure there will always be a push for more or less depending on where you lean. Hut as for me I wish to die with dignity. I believe in life and in death. I am not scared of dying, in fact any rational person knows this is inevitable. The first second you are born, is one less second of life, meaning one more second closer to death. We have wonderful technologies that can prolong life as you stated, but life is not forever. What I am stating here and I’m sure most others too, is that it’s our life! We should have the right to decide what is best for us! It doesn’t really matter what you think or other think. It’s a private conversation between ones family and doctors. For or against is nobody’s business but ours. All we ask is that the courts not punish our family or doctors for doing what we ask them to do. People also state that the mentally ill, those with deep depression will ask to die just because they can’t handle life. Again it’s not your choice to make for them. The problem is you don’t want us to have that choice! You are all for freedom to choose just so long as it’s what you agree with. But feel perfectly justify in denying us that freedom because you feel you have the moral authority over the rest of us! An individual’s right to life and death is theirs to make, not yours! So again we just want that right and not our families or doctors be punished for defending that right! Surely there can be a compromise don’t you think?

And with euthanasia, I wouldn’t put it past the Marxists to harvest body parts, prior to the murder.

I’ve always been of the belief someone should have the option to help them die if they are in pain and the odds don’t look to be in their favour. A person should have that right, but where do you draw the line? I don’t think government should have the right to end a persons life against that persons wishes and as far as healthy depressed people go someone should probably step in and get them help instead of ending their lives. It’s a touchie subject for sure but there will be ways people will find to abusse the system if it isn’t monitored properly.

Up until recently the argument in favour of doctor assisted suicide had hinged on the decision being taken by the one most affected; this was to be an act by an autonomous adult. More and more, though, the language has shifted and the choice of the individual affected is less and less important.

It is hard to believe life-and-death decisions would be taken by what Webelf calls “bean counters”, but that is where we seem to be headed.

Thanks for a good article.

This is phase 2, phase one of depopulation was abortion.

Love the song; but, unfortunately, it is sad and depressing to think that our society has reached this point. I have commented previously on other sites about the push towards “Dying with Dignity” and the ulterior motives that are behind this. Such a catchy phrase, isn’t it – “Dying with Dignity”?

It is indeed a “slippery slope” towards euthanasia – kill the undesirables, the crippled, the old, the infirm, the depressed, those with diminished intellectual abilities, etc. But push the dignity of it all. Make us feel that we are making the “good” choice. Push the “my life, my choice” rhetoric!" Tell us how “noble” we are being in making the “right” decision. Brainwash us.

But in the background lurks the “grim reaper” with his UN Agenda 21 goal of depopulation. Survival of the fittest – wasn’t that the refrain of Hitler and the Nazis during World War II? How many were exterminated?

“So why did lefties get so upset when a conservative suggested that murderers should be left a rope in their cells?”

They got so upset because they didn’t think of it first! No seriously, they don’t want to appear so blatantly callous and heartless, so they would rather use the liberal path of lies and deception, and lead the people down the path to hell, believing that the people wanted this. I agree, a very small percentage wanted to push for this because misery loves company. They want to normalize this and of course depopulate the world, which is really the Marxist goal.

Fortunately, I am not a retarded bible thumper, and can make up my own mind. When my life becomes unbearable, I will definitely ask the physicians to help me die. It will be my own decision, and no religious nutjobs are going to get in my way.

Wait until the feds or the province – or even worse – your family – gives you a call and says -

“You are costing us too much money – time for you to go – show up on this date and time for your lethal injection”.

Do not think for an instant that can not and will not happen.

Sorry but i do not trust the government with this kind of power , no matter which party it is. And before the progressives arrive and say we do not care for the dying, i am all for this , if it is properly used, but i know damn well it will not be.

Very well stated, and I’m with you on this! I’m also planning on avoiding hospitals, since I’m a boomer, and will be a target for those who want to cull the herd.

Does anyone remember the movie “Soylent Green?” It was about a detective that investigates the murder of a food-supply executive in an overpopulated, undernourished dystopian Manhattan and uncovers a disturbing secret about the special ingredients that go into the making of the people’s dietary staple. The special ingredient was the people, they were being recycled into the dietary staple. I always thought that this movie rang true, when I saw it. Very creepy indeed.
