The Assisted Suicide… Industry

(Thanks to Susan for the news tip)

When Canada in 2016 made it okay for doctors to help their patients kill themselves, no one expected a new industry to grow up around it. Even though that’s what always happens, every time some liberal politicians or judges discover a new “right” that wasn’t on the books before.

So now Canada, thanks to assisted suicide, has a growing “spare parts” trade (https://pjmedia.com/lifestyle/canada-touts-how-assisted-suicide-is-providing-human-spare-parts-so-hurry-up-and-die-already/?fbclid=IwAR0usvqYxca0mgErQ74JY0RkAzypwO1cUgtRun5PVH2_Oy1BKB-0rs1VORc).

Check out this headline from The Ottawa Citizen: “Medically assisted deaths prove a growing boon to organ donation in Ontario.” Hip, hip, hooray. And, in the text, “Ontarians who opt for medically assisted deaths (MAiD)–” dig the cute acronym–“are increasingly saving or improving other people’s lives…”

You name it, people make money on it. Assisted suicide is turning into big business. All these people rubbing their palms as they wait for you to snuff it. And if you’re a little slow to tell ’em to pull your plug, there’s always someone leaning over your hospital bed to remind you of all the good you’ll be doing, so why don’t you get a move on, etc.

So first it’s in your interest to die, to escape unrelievable suffering. Then it’s in the interest of those who will get well if they can gave one or more of your organs. It’s also in the interest of those who will make money on the deal, but it’s tactless to mention it. And finally, offing yourself probably helps Save The Planet.

Leftism kills.

    No matter what they prefer to call it, it is still murder.

    When something is made legal that before has always been illegal, more people will try it: “Hey, if it’s legal is must be okay.” Mayor Pete wants all those caught with illegal drugs not to be treated as criminals. He probably is for all drugs to be legal but his handlers most likely are pulling him back from the fringe.

    Ashes to ashes. I missed the fall of the Roman Empire but things are moving so fast we may witness America’s death by leftism. According to the “Suicide Manifesto” it’s a crime NOT to commit suicide under the following conditions: eating, breathing…

    PS: In line with the death of freedom, the “Senate Finance Committee advances USMCA integration of North America” – that’s Heidi Cruz’s North American Union treaty that merges the US with Mexico and Canada. It’s also the death of our Constitution, the backbone of America. The Senate has a Republican majority. The bad guys are winning because every time they kill a good guy they wear his clothes.

      “Regionalism” was a big thing in the 1960s, wave of the future and all that.
      I think I might have something to say about American leftism today, once I get rolling. Had a bad night, so I’m running way late today.

        I’m so sorry. Two aspirins, a vitamin C pill, a glass of fresh orange juice, and bed for a few hours? You must take better care of yourself – for everybody, including us. Perhaps you get routine winter colds like I used to get? If it’s anything more than that, take a shot of bourbon and go to sleep. Please?
