Canada Euthanizes 2,149 Patients During the First Year of Legalized Assisted Suicide

There were 167 reported euthanasia deaths in Québec prior to the federal government legalizing assisted death, ... as of June 30 there have been 2149 reported assisted deaths in Canada.

Canadian governments have established a self-reporting system, meaning the doctor who carries out the death is the same doctor who reports the death (no oversight of the law) therefore it is possible that under-reporting and abuse of the law occurs.

There have been several stories indicating that there are problems with Canada’s euthanasia law. For instance, Candice Lewis was pressured by doctors to die by euthanasia. Now she is feeling much better.

. . . Canada’s euthanasia law does not protect conscience rights for medical professionals. The Coalition for HealthCare and Conscience launched a legal challenge to the Ontario College of Physicians policy that forces physicians, who oppose killing, to “effectively refer” their patients to a physician who will kill.

. . . Meanwhile a Toronto study that was published in the New England Journal of Medicine found that requests for euthanasia are based on existential distress and not physical pain.
To make matters worse, in June 2017 an Ontario judge extended euthanasia to non terminal people by redefining the phrase “natural death must be reasonably forseeable” in his decision and Canadian euthanasia doctors are demanding more money to kill.

The number of Canadian euthanasia deaths is high when compared to Belgium where there was 235 reported assisted deaths in the first year (2003), 349 in the second year and 393 in its third year after legalization. Belgium has approximately 1/3 of Canada’s population. . . . Read More
