Trudo Lemmens, health law specialist, University of Toronto

“What was originally conceived as an exceptional practice in medicine has quickly become normalised”

“Even before the law is set to be expanded to include mentally ill patients, we already have worryingly high numbers of people dying,”

Argues that Canada’s approach is far more permissive than comparator nations, including Belgium and the Netherlands.

“We’ve failed to sufficiently safeguard against the medicalisation of ageing.”

The new law enacted last year stipulates that, starting in March, 2023, MAID will be expanded to include patients with mental illnesses.

First deaths expected 17th march 2024

  1. This is so tragic and sad. As a Canadian, I find the Canadian legislation with regards to M. A. I. D very disturbing and anti- Christianity where life has to be valued and cherished. Will the government officials obide with this unGodly legislation for their own families? Where is the empathy?

  2. I also want to say that psychiatry and medication can help control or maybe even cure some mental illnesses but some people suffer very terribly throughout their lives and they may not be curable or feel they have a good quality of life. Mental illness affects all levels of one’s being including physical social psychological financial as well. I think some people get outraged at the idea of MAID or suicide in these cases but they have NO understanding of how bad it can be for some people. That, or they would prefer that person lives at all costs with no concern for their quality of life.
    I am advocating for personal choice in intractable situations.

  3. It makes my heart bleed when l remember how l was pushed to say “ l don’t want my mom to suffer “because l loved so much . There was an accumulation of fluid in her lungs and they asked me if l want her to suffer badly or not…
    So they were so ready to medically assist her to die and they did …
    I don’t really know if they could have saved or not … and l was put in an ugly and painful corner which l can not forget. We are Canadians

  4. I appreciate this channel very much. Without discounting the importance of all human life, I something does not make sense to me in this argument of adoption of a foetus that by law in Australis is prior to the foetus reaching 9 weeks in development. Does this argument require keeping the baby alive and nourished outside of the uterus to reach full development over another 30 weeks to consider that it could then be adopted? Or did I miss something?

  5. When the Covenant with the Many ( UN joint agreement signing next year) is made official and the NWO roles into Australia shortly after….nearly all Australians will roll over in their sleep and take it up the arse with hardly a peep…dare I say, they'll beg for more.

  6. Dr John, in the USA, we have a distraught Dad, Scott Schara, whose amazing daughter, Grace, with down syndrome was medically murdered and he is fighting back with a lawsuit and with exposing how she was treated. On his website, he posts legal forms that US citizens can prepare and help prevent their medical directives from being ignored should a hospitalization take place. Given where we are today, worth sharing.

  7. Should this be of any surprise. For years we’ve allowed countries like China, Russia, and Cuba seats on the UN’s Human Rights council. We have not only failed to hold the worst violators accountable, instead they have been rewarded with positions of power and influence to regulate human rights. This seems to coincide with a global attack on Christianity. There was a day not long ago that even the Muslim countries came to accept international human rights laws which were largely influenced by Christian values. Today it seems that even those country’s once thought to be Christian are failing to maintain the values that their forebear’s worked so hard to make the international standard!

  8. Many commenters who say they are "disgusted" or "ashamed" fail to realize that people are living longer with degenerative diseases that keep them bedridden and that they will have incurable diseases like advanced cancers. I live in Quebec and understand the legislation (proposed by minority member of Parliament, VĂ©ronique Hivon) and the debate that led to it. You cannot merely request MAID. It needs careful consideration by several professionals and family members. Those in the 11.5% fail to get MAId because they don't meet the criteria. Those that do, typically have they support of their family that has supported them for years, if not decades, and understand how the terminal illness affects the patient. The patients have thought about it after enduring long periods of suffering — not just pain and isolation.
    See the story of Sue Rodriguez and what her wishes were. Canada has not hastily adopted such legislation, and unlike the US, offers universal palliative health care to all who need it, regardless of ability to pay.
    Allowing individuals to make decisions about their end of life care is about humility. It is accepting that someone should not be forced to live a life in bed, with daily morphine injections, or missing organs, for years when they know that there is no possibility of improvement. So don't be so judgemental dr John, about legislation that was democratically adopted, and things you don't know well enough to comment on.
    The only one who can authorize MAID is the patient (of sound mind) and the Supreme Court ruled that a ban on MAID is unconstitutional. This is why provinces have had to create legislation that protects the process and ensures it is carried out in accordance with the laws.

  9. LIVER POOL CARE PATHWAY was a training ground? Hospitals were also provided cash incentives to achieve targets for the number of patients placed on the LCP.[ =Morphine Haloperidol and MIDAZOLAM a combination evil distressful killer mix.
    While the initial reception was positive, it was heavily criticised in the media in 2009 and 2012 following a nationwide roll-out. In July 2013, the Department of Health released a statement which stated the use of the LCP should be "phased out over the next 6-12 months and replaced with an individual approach to end of life care for each patient".[2] However, The Daily Telegraph reported that the programme was just rebranded and that its supposed replacement would "perpetuate many of its worst practices, allowing patients to suffer days of dehydration, or to be sedated, leaving them unable to even ask for food or drink."[3]

  10. "The thief (satan) comes only to steal, kill and destroy. I (Jesus) have come so they may have life, and have it to the full." (John 10:10) Behind these so called "medical procedures" – abortion, euthanasia – is the same humans hating spirit at work, and we allow these to happen… against God's clear will PRO LIFE
