Canada Is Euthanizing Its Sick and Poor. Welcome to World of Government Health Care
But it seems Canadian officials are more interested in urging doctors to help patients to kill themselves than to treat them.
America's neighbor to the north has some of the most permissive euthanasia laws in the world. Canada's medical assistance in dying laws allow almost anyone who can claim some form of hardship or disability to receive physician-assisted suicide, regardless of how minor those disabilities might be.
In a recently reported horror story from The Associated Press, Alan Nichols, 61, was successfully killed after a quick one month waiting period as he was suffering from hearing loss. Nichols was an otherwise decently healthy guy, but his brother claimed he was railroaded into killing himself.
