The Nationalization of Assisted Suicide Will Have Far-Reaching Consequences

Progressive cultural radicals are busily nationalizing their policy agendas by breaking the usual legal comity among the states. For example, California recently declared itself a transgender sanctuary jurisdiction. Its law now actively interferes with out-of-state child custody orders by allowing non-resident gender dysphoric children who make it to California to access puberty-blocking and transition surgeries despite their custodial parent’s refusal of consent.

Medical Aid in Dying: Euphemism of Choice for Assisted Suicide

The word engineering never stops, does it? When radical policies are proposed, the first step is to change the lexicon to make it seem less extreme, even mundane. Read More ›

The Canadian Culture of Death Brooks No Dissent

Mere legalization of euthanasia is never enough. Eventually, efforts will be made to compel dissenting doctors and institutions to become complicit in the killing of sick patients — even if it violates constitutional guarantees of freedom of religion. Read More ›

The Whispers of Strangers

Today is my 76th birthday," the letter began. "Unassisted and by my own free will, I have chosen to take my final passage." Suicide. My friend Frances died in a cold, impersonal hotel room after taking an overdose of sleeping pills, with a plastic bag tied over her head suffocating the life out of her body. Read More ›

U.K. Medical Society Goes ‘Neutral’ on Euthanasia as Quebec Expands Eligibility

How in the world can a medical association be neutral on granting doctors a license to kill or assist the suicide of their patients? This is a matter of the gravest medical ethical concern, an action, remember, that was strictly proscribed 2,500 years ago in the Hippocratic Oath. Read More ›

Bioethicists: Euthanasia Okay for ‘Unjust Social Conditions’

Once killing the sufferer becomes a societally acceptable means for ending suffering, there becomes no end to the “suffering” that justifies human termination. We can see this phenomenon most vividly in Canada, because it is happening there more quickly than in most cultures. For example, a recent poll found that 27 percent of Canadians polled strongly or moderately agree that euthanasia is acceptable for suffering caused by “poverty” and 28 percent strongly or moderately agree that killing by doctors is acceptable for suffering caused by homelessness. Euthanasia mutates a society’s soul. I can’t imagine that being true ten years ago before euthanasia became legal. This kind of abandoned thinking finds enthusiastic, albeit not unanimous, expression among secular bioethicists. In fact, two Canadian bioethicists just published a paper in the Journal Read More ›

Dutch Expand Euthanasia to Children Ages One to Twelve

Because of course they do. Once euthanasia is accepted by a society, it is a one-way street, continually expanding the killable castes. The Dutch already allowed euthanasia for ages twelve and up. Now, it is down to age one. From the NTD News story: The Netherlands has said it will broaden its euthanasia regulations to allow doctors the ability to end the lives of terminally ill children between one and 12 years old. The rule change involves the government adjusting an existing protocol, and does not require parliamentary approval. The decision comes after years of requests from some Dutch doctors to lower the age limit of 12 for euthanasia, as well as debate within the cabinet. According to the Dutch government, “The end of life Read More ›
