To have heard from Douglas Murray discussing about the Canadian MAiD program is equivalent to finding out that the Western world is becoming more like a sci-fi dystopia, with Canada taking the lead in a rather alarming medical program that seems to be contrary to the spirit of the Hippocratic Oath.
Douglas Murray joins John Connolly to discuss Canada’s proposed expansion of its euthanasia laws. From next year, people who are mentally unwell will be eligible to legally take their own life. What is Trudeau thinking? In the video published on July 22, 2023, by The Spectator, as “Douglas Murray on the horror of Canada’s euthanasia laws | SpectatorTV” below:
Below, in bold italics, is an excerpt from AI-generated material on the Canadian MAID program:
- Be at least 18 years old and have decision-making capacity
- Be eligible for publicly funded health care services
- Make a voluntary request that is not the result of external pressure
- Have a serious and incurable illness, disease, or disability
- Be in an advanced state of irreversible decline in capability
- Be enduring physical or psychological suffering that is intolerable and cannot be relieved
Euthanasia in Canada in its legal voluntary form is called medical assistance in dying (MAiD) and it first became legal along with assisted suicide in June 2016 to allow terminally ill adults to control their deaths. In March 2021, the law was further amended by Bill C-7 which permits assisted euthanasia in additional situations, including for people with disabilities and chronic diseases. In 2021, more than 10,000 people died by euthanasia in Canada.
The intensity and breadth of Canada’s MAiD program has led to condemnation of its program by UN human rights experts and disability rights groups in Canada. It has also been the subject of substantial international attention and criticism. Human rights advocates have criticized Canada’s euthanasia laws for lacking safeguards, devaluing the lives of disabled people, prompting health workers and doctors to suggest euthanasia to people who would not otherwise consider it, and killing people who were not receiving adequate government support to continue living. In 2023, four leading medical specialists concluded in a study that “The Canadian MAiD regime is lacking the safeguards, data collection, and oversight necessary to protect Canadians against premature death.”
