The progressive agenda landed hard in Canada and the problems with the scope of euthanasia that the right denounces so much have become a reality in the North American country.
On November 27th, Justin Trudeau’s government passed the extension of the Dying Medical Assistance (MAID) Act to cases of mental health problems including depression, and even financial problems such as homelessness.
Starting March next year, anyone feeling depressed or homeless will be able to apply for assisted dying in Canada’s public health system.🇧🇷 Until now, euthanasia has only been allowed for patients with serious health problems who do not recover.
While Canada’s healthcare system is celebrated around the world as an example, Canadians are tired of long lines and supply shortages at public hospitals🇧🇷
🇧🇷Our public health is deplorable, we have longer waiting times than in Cuba, and sometimes we have less free medicine than they do.,” said a Canadian interviewed by Fox News after the new law was passed. 🇧🇷I don’t know how the State is going to deal with so many people who now want to commit suicide with the help of the public health system”, he questioned.
🇧🇷Rather than prioritizing supports to help people live meaningful lives, we prioritize ways to make dying more accessible. This is a heartbreaking message“, he said.
The recent changes introduced in the Bill C-7 has caused concern in the conservative opposition, but also in human rights groups and mental health advocates in Canadaone of the few countries where euthanasia is legal, and now it will be more widespread.
The legalization of euthanasia has generated strong rejection in the population around the world for these reasons, as opens the door for assisted suicide to be feasible for all types of people and not just for terminally ill patients.
Until the moment, only seven countries in the world allow the practice. Belgium and Netherlandswho have some of the most permissive euthanasia policies in the world, were the first to legalize assisted suicide in 2002. They were joined by Luxembourg in 2009, Colombia in 2014, Canada in 2016 and Spain and New Zealand last year.
