Euthanasia: Supremes Turn Canada Into Belgium!

The Canadian Supreme Court just unleashed the evils of Belgium euthanasia on all of Canada in a unanimous vote. From the Reuters story:

The Supreme Court of Canada overturned a ban on physician-assisted suicide on Friday, unanimously reversing a decision it made in 1993 and putting Canada in the company of a handful of Western countries where the practice will be legal.

The top court said it would be allowed in the case of consenting adults who are suffering intolerably from a severe and incurable medical condition, whether physical or psychological, and the illness does not have to be terminal. The decision takes effect in 12 months.

This is Belgium by fiat. This means the mentally ill, disabled and despairing, chronically ill, and dying will be lethally injected.

By the way, the government will be paying the cost of making people dead.

The court stayed the ruling for a year to give the Parliament time to fashion a law.

The Parliament should refuse the invitation and fight back regardless of the MPs’ personal views on euthanasia. This is a huge power grab by the court taking a crucial legal, cultural, and medical issue out of the hands of the people’s representatives.

Twenty years ago, there was no constitutional right to assisted suicide in Canada. Now, there is a right to euthanasia. The Canadian Constitution didn’t change. The arrogance of judges did.
