Canada Is Offering to Euthanize People Afraid of Becoming Homeless

Euthanasia for seriously ill people is a right I'd defend. But yes, this should not be among the situations in which it is offered.

However....since we don't seem to be able to provide people with decent living environments, or a way to care for themselves, it's not a surprise this is becoming somewhat of a Hunger Games scenario.

The woman in the second story has disability that causes her to be sensitive to, “cigarette smoke, laundry chemicals, and air fresheners. She is at risk of anaphylactic shock and so has EpiPens at all times in case she has a life-threatening allergic attack.”

The disabled woman veteran is agitating for money to build a ramp and bemoans not having the help she needs yet was able to afford to travel to Brazil for the Paralympics just a few years before.

All of these cases are stunt queens and attention whores using the media to drum up sympathy and none have been euthanized. Not one single case.

I personally support the concept of medically-assisted suicide in cases of extremely painful, fatal, incurable diseases. Regardless of religious teaching, nobody should deal with absolute suffering. It is unfair to the person, the person's family, and medical science to turn them into basically a lab experiment for how long they can make them live. Canada may have gone too far with it, but is it causing grief, is it truly making a ruckus with society? I really don't think it is afaik. Perhaps time will tell, but as far it is known, when someone's dead, they're no longer in pain. And at least we can all move on with that kind of thing.

Personally, I've lost way too many loved ones at my age and from my experiences, have been trying to make it past such grief. Enjoying life is important, not prolonging suffering.

R42, that’s not what actually happened in the first two cases. They applied to the euthanasia program themselves, then went to the media to talk about being desperate.

The third case the woman was suggested the program sarcastically by a worker who was then fired for even daring to suggest such a thing, sarcastically.

A discussion of these people deserving more government assistance is fine, but none of these cases are actually cases of the government saying that people should be killed because they can’t afford x,y, or z.

There is a huge difference between incompetent bureaucrats offering INFORMATION about medical assistance in dying, and two medical professionals assessing the patient and approving the application, which must be signed by two independent witnesses, and then actually administering the drugs that end the patient's life. The Canadian media, especially the right and center-right, have successfully launched an hysterical anti-MAID campaign based on half-assed clickbait reporting; it's the equivalent of saying abortion should be illegal because a woman who did not want an abortion was offered information about how she could get one. There are many safeguards (listed at the link) in place for a procedure that over 30,000 people have chosen to use to end their own suffering. Would the "journalists" or anti-MAID activists please take the time to document how any of these 30,000 + patients were given medical assistance in dying in a way that violated their wishes and breached the safeguards in place?

R56, dear, the elites have you so well programmed that at this point that you can only relate to stories like this through the liberal individualist mindset where you (1) immediately making it all about you and (2) by ignoring the real issue here of widespread human homelessness and regurgitating ye old elite's issue of bodily autonomy! You even mentioned the slogan. Less thinking when you can just repeat a slogan!

You may not be a Nazi, but you are very much an enabler of nazism.

Textbook example of the pathological thinking from so-called liberals that enables so much harm caused to so so many. That is anything but progressive. The issue is widespread human homelessness in a developed nation... why it exists and what to do about it. Humans are great. We want more of them and better quality humans. You've taken the elites mindset which looks at humans, as scum, yourself included.

Elites don't want to address that issue, nazis want a world without people unlike them, including you. You don't want homelessness but you can't do anything about it so you have submitted to their framing instead which only exists because they can't do to the undesirables like they did in the 1940s. So they've opted to ruin society for the weak, and and make pawns out of those who can bear it, like you.

On what grounds is it not morally acceptable for the government to respect a person's right to bodily autonomy in all aspects of their life, r63? It's far safer for something like this to be done under the supervision of a licensed physician. If someone is suffering, what is morally wrong about respecting their wishes for death? It seems morally wrong to allow them to suffer because we disagree with their choice. It also seems morally wrong to suggest they choose methods that have high failure rates and can leave them scarred for life.

r67 I already conceded that the government shouldn't be suggesting medically assisted suicide for people for any reason. But, if someone chooses that for themselves unprompted because they are miserable, I think it's morally wrong to force them to use more dangerous methods of suicide that may fail and cause them more harm. If someone suffering - whether that suffering is physical, mental, or emotional - wants to die, I don't think it's morally wrong to help them do so peacefully and painlessly.

R102/103 At some point, it became part of the DL brand of 'humor' to mock people who have severe chronic illnesses. It's really bizarre. I feel like it traces back to Bravo's 'Yolanda is faking Lyme disease' and 'Vicki's boyfriend is faking cancer' storylines, which seem to have convinced healthy people that making fun of sick people and denying they are ill is both funny and righteous.

R103, I am not sure what the spirit of your post is, but taken sincerely, it's right. That episode of the Golden Girls was written because the show creator had chronic fatigue and was treated that way by her doctors, and 40 years later, people like R100 still amuse themselves by acting like the doctors in the show. It's pretty fucked up.

I was so sick for years beginning in my early 30s. Doctors tested me for ALS, MS, etc., and said something was wrong with my CNS but couldn't figure out what. It took five years to diagnose late disseminated Lyme infection. While I was being treated for that, I was diagnosed by MCAS. The Lyme treatment cured all the neuro issues. I'll have to take lots of anti-allergy drugs for the rest of my life because of the MCAS, and that was most likely catalyzed by the Lyme infection. Many 'long COVID' cases have the same symptom profile.

Now, it's known that certain infections can trigger immune system dysfunctions. Epstein-Barr is definitively associated with and at some point it likely will be proven to cause a lot of cases of multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue syndrome (now called myalgic encephalitis), lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, celiac disease and irritable bowel syndrome. Lyme is often misdiagnosed as one of these before the infection is finally detected.

It's bizarre that since we were all scared out of our minds from COVID and cooped up like horror movie characters hiding from a killer for a year, everyone is sympathetic about long COVID. And when someone says "I have cancer," it's immediate and total sympathy as long as you're not a Bravo reality show actor. And when someone says "I have MS" or "I have Parkinson's," cue the sympathy.

But if someone is in agony or even disabled by certain other diseases, assholes say "all of her made up conditions will go away if someone would just donate some gender neutral clothing." And the real horror is that some of those assholes are doctors.

Who would have said that Soylent Green was not a mere case of dystopian science fiction/horror, but a very possible reality?

I hope that there are extremely serious consequences for Trudeau and his nefarious cabal, but all of us know that all other powerful parties are part of the same corrupt structure and will only keep driving these nightmarish horrors forward. And what shocks me the most is to read that there are people willing to rationalize this disgusting act of wicked depravity as an effective solution to a problem with which our corporate overlords don't want to deal. Are you mentally ill? This is just grotesque!

How depressing it is to see that society is truly collapsing, and most people are happy to participate in their own destruction. 😭

There’s little left in this world besides profit and hatred. Blind hope in the future is rarely enough to pay poor people’s bills, and ALL PEOPLE deserve agency over their own bodies. It’s our only true power after the rich take literally everything else from us. Let the capitalists stay here and consume each other in search of eternal growth.
