Quebec euthanasia: pause before the hurricane

Soon Canada’s radical Supreme Court ruling, imposing a far more open-ended euthanasia license on the country than Quebec’s provincial law, will go into effect.

December 2, 2015 (NationalReview) -- A brief pause before the killing agenda to come in Canada.

A court has restrained Quebec’s euthanasia law from going into effect. From the Globe and Mail story:

The injunction sought by the Quebec-based Coalition of Physicians for Social Justice and Lisa D’Amico, a handicapped woman, was related to a Supreme Court ruling last February that struck down the prohibition on physician-assisted dying.

The high court’s decision gave the federal government 12 months to craft a new law to recognize the right of clearly consenting adults with enduring intolerable physical or mental suffering to seek medical help to end their lives.

But Wesley: That’s good news, right?

Yes, but I am afraid it is merely the calm before the hurricane.

Soon Canada’s radical Supreme Court ruling, referenced in the story, imposing a far more open-ended euthanasia license on the country than Quebec’s provincial law will go into effect.

At that point, this injunction won’t matter.
