doctor with stethoscopeCanada is inching closer to forcing euthanasia across the board thanks to government-controlled health care. 

Euthanasia was legalized by court order in 2016, making it an option for people suffering from a terminal illness, but lawmakers are moving to expand the list of those who qualify to children and mentally ill people.

The government is now pressuring hospitals and hospice operations to permit euthanasia, and Alex Schadenberg of the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition says cooperating in killing is contrary to their mission to provide comfort care until natural death.

Schadenberg, Alex (EPC)“Because the government pays for health care in Canada,” he explains, “and Canada also pays for the euthanasia deaths, lethal injections, therefore there's pressure then on hospices who want nothing to do with killing their patients.”

In Ontario, even doctors who oppose participating in euthanasia on religious grounds must assume a role.

“This is all about normalizing an act of homicide,” Schadenberg warns, “because that's what euthanasia is: it's a homicide. It's about giving a lethal injection to a patient and causing their death.”
