  • Are Canadians being driven to assisted suicide by poverty or healthcare crisis? Critics argue laws are being misused to punish the poor but experts say cases represent country’s failure to care for its most vulnerable citizens

    After pleading unsuccessfully for affordable housing to help ease her chronic health condition, a Canadian woman ended her life in February under the country’s assisted-suicide laws. Another woman, suffering from the same condition and also living on disability payments, has nearly reached final approval to end her life. The two high-profile cases have prompted disbelief and outrage, and shone a light on Canada’s right-to-die laws, which critics argue are being misused to punish the poor and infirm. In late April, the Spectator ran a story with the provocative headline: Why is Canada euthanising the poor? But medical and legal experts...

    Another attempt to push pro-death legislation has been thwarted in Connecticut.HARTFORD, Connecticut (LifeSiteNews) – For the tenth time, a bill to legalize assisted suicide has been defeated in Connecticut. Bill SB 88 was defeated on April 12 after it had passed in the Connecticut Public Health Committee in March. One of the strongest opponents of the bill was Cathy Ludlum, who is one of the leaders of Second Thoughts Connecticut, a group dedicated to protecting the rights of disabled people in light of the push for assisted suicide. According the Second Thoughts, the most recent attempt to legalize medical suicide...

    President Biden’s new ambassador to the Holy See voted in favor of former President Obama’s legislative agenda supporting Planned Parenthood and gay marriage when he was a senator, despite previously speaking out against such measures. Joe Donnelly, who served as a Democratic senator from Indiana from 2013 to 2019, presented his credentials to Pope Francis at the apostolic palace in Vatican City on April 11. “I look forward to deepening our ties with the Holy See. My family and I are proud to be members of the Catholic faith,” Donnelly said in a video. “From my childhood, through my college...
  • Government authorised “mass murder” of the Elderly and Vulnerable by Midazolam injection and then blamed Covid-19

    ransomnote: It's not just happening in the UK.In March 2020 the UK Government announced that the country “must stay at home” in order to “protect the NHS” and “save lives”. But little did the public know, the UK Government was in the process of implementing policies that would lead to the unnecessary killing of the UK’s elderly and most vulnerable, who you were told had died of Covid-19, and the “Death Document” proves it.Between 2 March and 12 June 2020, 18,562 residents of care homes in England died with COVID-19, including 18,168 people aged 65 and over, representing almost 40%...
  • What 1973’s Soylent Green Accurately Predicted about 2022

    Ihave always loved science fiction. So when Soylent Green was first released in 1973, I immediately headed to the theater. I remember clearly being shocked by the depictions presented but assuaging myself with the comforting thought that nothing like any of that would ever actually happen. The story takes place in 2022 — 50 years from when it was filmed. Now that 2022 has actually arrived, I decided to view the film again to check how well the writers did at predicting the world of today. Unsurprisingly, the movie got several of the details very wrong, as Kyle Smith recently...
  • Doctors Can Earn $1,087 to Euthanize COVID Patients in New Zealand

    01/11/2022 3:07:07 PM PST · by RomanSoldier19 · 21 replies ^ | December 29, 2021 | By Neil Campbell
    The Government of New Zealand has confirmed that Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) patients are eligible for a newly-enacted euthanasia law that pays doctors who provide the service a $1,087 plus travel expenses fee. The New Zealand Ministry of Health (MOH) describes the End of Life Choice Act 2019 (EOLCA) on its website as legislation that “gives people who experience unbearable suffering from a terminal illness the option of legally asking for medical assistance to end their lives.” The EOLCA was approved by the people of New Zealand in a 2020 rider referendum accompanying a federal election that saw lockdown and...

    The New Zealand government has announced that patients admitted to the hospital for COVID-19 can be killed via euthanasia, according to Scoop.In November, anti-euthanasia group #DefendNZ asked the New Zealand Ministry of Health (MOH) questions about the practice of the nation’s End of Life Choice Act (EOLC Act). One of these questions was, “Could a patient who is severely hospitalised with Covid-19 potentially be eligible for assisted suicide or euthanasia under the Act if a health practitioner viewed their prognosis as less than 6 months?”The EOLC Act states that a person who has a “terminal illness that is likely to...

    Patients admitted to hospital with COVID-19 can die by euthanasia if doctors decide they might not survive, the New Zealand government has declared. The Ministry of Health confirmed that a right to a lethal injection under a new euthanasia law could extend to patients who were either dying from the coronavirus or suffering unbearably from its consequences. In response to a request for clarity on a euthanasia law which came into force last month, the government declared that “in some circumstances a person with COVID-19 may be eligible for assisted dying”. The admission that COVID patients were eligible for a...

    Irony has been declared many times in this pandemic but now, from Covid-riddled Germany comes the final proof: you can't kill yourself now unless you've been vaccinated. As European countries battle to limit the spread of the virus, Verein Sterbehilfe – the German Euthanasia Association – has issued a new directive, declaring it will now only help those who have been vaccinated or recovered from the disease. In a statement, the association said: “Euthanasia and the preparatory examination of the voluntary responsibility of our members willing to die require human closeness. Human closeness, however, is a prerequisite and breeding ground...

    American Thinker ^ | 27 Nov, 2021 | Andrea Widburg
    We just learned that, in Germany, you must get a vaccine before you can do this...the last thing you’d ever thought would require vaccination. Germany is a country that’s simply weird when it comes to death. During the 1930s it euthanized its physically and developmentally disabled people, including children, to 'purify' its population. In the 1940s, it slaughtered Jews, gypsies, and homosexuals to 'purify' the world. Then, for a long time, it stopped killing people. However, Germany is now one of the European countries that allow euthanasia, so it’s now killing people because they want to die. However, no matter...

    SHTF Plan ^ | 11/24/21 | Mac Slavo
    The euthanasia association says that “assisted death” is only for those who are vaccinated against COVID-19. Oh, the irony… Anyone wishing to be euthanized (or killed with medical help) now has to first present proof of vaccination or recovery from Covid, as per the new guidelines issued by Germany’s euthanasia association, according to RT. The total irony of this is not lost. Aren’t the “vaccinated” taking the shots so they don’t die? Because their fear of dying from something with a survival rate of over 99.99% is overwhelming the reptilian part of their brain? And many of those who don’t...

    Euthanasia and the attendant preparations require "human closeness," which is a prerequisite and breeding ground for coronavirus transmission, according to a statement made by the group. As numerous European countries proceeded to impose new limitations aimed at limiting the spread of COVID-19, the German Euthanasia Association (Verein Sterbehilfe) declared that it will now only help those who have been vaccinated or recovered from the disease. The Euthanasia Association said in a statement put on its website that both euthanasia and the preparatory study of the voluntary responsibility of our members wanting to die requires human closeness.

    The largely pro-life country of Malta, located south of Sicily, has been facing pressure to legalize abortion and euthanasia and abandon its deeply-held principles. Activists are working to make abortion legal in the island nation, though pro-life Maltese citizens are continuing to stand strong — even as police have begun cracking down on pro-life advocacy as “hate speech.” Emma Portelli Bonnici is a candidate running for office with the Nationalist Party (PN). In a press conference, she promised free contraception and morning-after pills within six months if her party is put into power. She’s also openly pro-abortion, and filed a...

    Eight residents at a Connecticut nursing home have died in a COVID-19 outbreak at the facility in less than seven weeks, administrators said. Sixty-seven residents and 22 staffers at Geer Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in North Canaan have tested positive for the virus since Sept. 30, administrators said in a statement Friday. “Sadly, we have lost 8 residents with serious underlying health issues to Covid,” the nursing home said. “We are encouraged to see 69 staff and residents already recovered and coming off isolation.”
  • Illegal euthanasia of infants continues in Belgium

    It is well-known that eligibility for euthanasia in Belgium is elastic. However, there are limits. The law only permits the euthanasia of minors who are capable of discernment and who are conscious. But, according to a recent brief report in the Archives of Disease in Childhood Fetal and Neonatal edition, Flemish doctors euthanise 10% of newborns for whom there is “no hope of a bearable future”. This statistic is taken from a study based on 24 babies who died in Flanders between September 2016 and December 2017. The numbers are small, admittedly, but the proportion of new-borns who died after...

  • Doctors and nurses should use their 'trusted' positions to urge patients to fight climate change, researchers say

    Doctors and nurses should tell their patients to fight climate change, experts have said. Writing in the Journal of Paediatrics and Child Health, they said medics should wield their 'trusted' positions in society to get people to take care of the planet. Academics wrote that health professionals could be 'effective messengers' and help encourage more people to fight climate change.
