As Democrats celebrate the passage of a bill that will entrench the government in our healthcare, our neighbors to the north provide a chilling example of the effects of socialized medicine. A recent Associated Press expose about the culture of death within Canada’s single-payer system shows how putting the government in charge of healthcare leads to the devaluing of human life, particularly the most vulnerable.

The Associated Press noted that Canada has some of the loosest and most permissive laws on euthanasia in the entire world:

· Unlike most countries that have legalized assisted suicide, Canada does not have a commission to investigate to review troubling deaths under the law.

If you miss morning pastries like coffee cake while living a low-carb life, try this cup of coffee cake that’s …If you miss morning pastries like coffee cake while living a low-carb life, try this cup of coffee cake that’s 5.4g net carbs. It’s still possible to treat yourself while on the keto diet when you do so in a portion-controlled way, like mug cakes.

· While countries like Belgium forbid doctors from bringing up euthanasia with patients, fearing the physician will unduly influence a patient’s perspective and wishes, the Canadian association of health professionals encourages doctors to discuss euthanasia with patients as a possible “clinical care option.”

· Unlike in Belgium and the Netherlands, Canadian patients do not need to exercise all medical options before choosing euthanasia.

Despite these already liberal guidelines, Canada’s euthanasia laws will become even more open on several levels. First, so-called mature youths under the age of 18 will qualify for this “mercy killing.”

In addition, people will be able to qualify for death based exclusively on mental health conditions. Coming so soon after the coronavirus pandemic, when prolonged lockdowns in many locations, including in Canada, exacerbated depression and related symptoms, this liberalization could lead to an explosion of new deaths from euthanasia.

If you want a quick and easy chocolate mug cake recipe, you can omit the toppings. However, if you’re looking to take your moist mug cake to another level, take the time to make the chocolate glaze and whipped cream topping.

Yet Canada has already seen a wave of euthanasia in recent months. The Associated Press noted that “there were more than 10,000 deaths by euthanasia last year, an increase of about a third from the previous year.” This number is even more staggering when you consider that Canada has roughly one-tenth the population of the United States.

When euthanasia cases rise by more than 30% in a single year, that should provide cause for alarm for most observers. But that's not the case in Canada, which will only expand access to the procedure.

As the mother of a child with a disability, I share the outrage of those who believe the Canadian healthcare system devalues some of the most vulnerable in society. The details of stories such as that of Alan Nichols, a 61-year-old involuntarily committed and then euthanized within a month, raise serious questions about an out-of-control system in which doctors and bureaucrats view patients not as subjects entrusted to their care but as objects to be dealt with however they choose.

How to Make Perfect Gravy from Scratch + Trouble Shooting Tips

  How to Make Perfect Gravy from Scratch + Trouble Shooting Tips Are you wondering how to make gravy from scratch? Homemade gravy can be intimidating. The last thing you want to end up with is a … Print Prep Time 5 minutes Cook Time 5 minutes Total Time 10 minutes Ingredients 4 tablespoons meat drippings or unsalted butter 1/4 cup all purpose flour 2 cups stock Salt and pepper to taste Instructions Make a roux by heating drippings or melting butter over medium heat. You can do this directly in the roasting pan or any skillet. Add flour and whisk until bubbly and thick.

When Canada can allow for euthanasia based solely on a person's disability, which international experts have called a human rights violation, it exemplifies a culture that devalues the most vulnerable. That culture becomes manifest in cases such as Nichols’s as requests by his brother and family members for an investigation into the suspicious circumstances of his death have gone nowhere.

Noting the way in which both medical and law enforcement authorities have called Nichols’s death justified and appropriate — the euthanasia form listed hearing loss as the sole justification for his killing — one Canadian professor said the case “demonstrates that the rules are too loose and that even when people die who shouldn’t have died, there is almost no way to hold the doctors and hospitals responsible.”

I hope and pray this culture of death will never migrate into the U.S. and that Canada will reform its laws to end its permissive euthanasia system. All patients, no matter how vulnerable, especially the most vulnerable, deserve protection by the healthcare system and our laws, in Canada, in the U.S., and around the world.
