(LifeSiteNews) — On tonight’s episode of The John-Henry Westen Show, I sit down with Alex Schadenberg, executive director and international chair of the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition, for a conversation about the despicable insanity of assisted suicide in Canada.

To kick off the episode, I ask Schadenberg to get into the details about the Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD) law, adopted in 2021 through the passage of Bill C-7. Increasing numbers of people are deciding to end their lives because of poverty or because they can’t find the medical care they need.

I also ask him whether he thinks euthanasia will eventually be expanded to “severely ill” infants, a truly horrendous idea floated by the Quebec College of Physicians.

“Legalizing euthanasia for newborns totally changes the landscape of the issue of killing,” Schadenberg says. “Now, why do I say that? They sold this concept of euthanasia to Canadians and they sold it to people all over the world for the same reason of, ‘It’s my choice. It’s my autonomy. My body, my choice, my freedom … I decide.'”

“The newborn can’t ask for it. The newborn has no autonomy per se,” he adds. “So you’re now saying, ‘Oh, we’re actually going to allow this based on killing someone because we consider their life not worth living.'”
