Most of the discussion around eugenics has been about the planned evolution of humanity. Designer babies and the elimination of genetic defects and diseases. But there is also the other end of eugenics, thinning the herd, eliminating defective and undesirables from society.
This week, the Canadian government released its fourth annual report on medically assisted dying in Canada, finding that 13,241 people were killed by the medical systems, making it #5 on the hit parade’s top ways to die in 2022.
Starting in 2018, the Trudeau regime could only convince 4,480 Canadians to die, the program has tripled the number of victims in just four years. It’s the only run-away successful program the Trudeau government has. Convincing citizens that they’re better off dead than living in Trudeau’s Canada. Like the government has a vested financial interest in paying for death, and not continue expensive medical treatments.
So I have to wonder, so often leftists like to play word games — likes to euphemise away unpleasant sounding realities. Are they doing it here? Is MAiD really intended to clean up society? Just like the maids who clean their mansions, taking care of those nasty unpleasant aspects of daily life…
How much further along until we arrive at this dystopia?
If a Canadian’s only affliction was “poverty,” 27 per cent said they would be fine with legalizing that person’s access to MAID. Another 28 per cent pegged “homelessness” as an appropriate bar to qualify for MAID.
And 20 per cent of respondents were fine with MAID being handed out to anybody for any reason. In other words, one fifth of respondents agreed with the sentiment “medical assistance in dying should always be allowed, regardless of who requests it.”
Notably, these most absolutist supporters of assisted suicide were pretty evenly distributed among age groups, regions and even political demographics: 20 per cent Conservatives, 20 per cent of NDPers and 22 per cent of Liberals were in the “always be allowed” camp.
I don’t know how a conservative squares away supporting medical suicide for no medical reason. What exactly are you in favor of conserving if LIFE isn’t on top of the list? It’s shocking to see so many Canadians following Trudeau’s stupid happy-face fascism into their own graves. The more they support the expansion of the MAiD programs, the more likely they will become the victim of the programs they support. Poetic justice there, I suppose, but thousands if not millions of bystanders may also be swept away to early and unnecessary graves in the process.
This is truly my shocked face.Published in
