Some days, the outrage mounts to a level that gets me shaking and screaming, unable to form a coherent sentence for the power of the emotion. Such an occasion leaves me weak for hours and upsets my wife rather badly. Fortunately, such days are uncommon.
But they’re not uncommon enough:
TORONTO – In a prestigious medical journal, doctors from Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children have laid out policies and procedures for administering medically assisted death to children, including scenarios where the parents would not be informed until after the child dies.
The article appears just three months before the Canadian Council of Academies is due to report to Parliament on the medical consensus about extending voluntary euthanasia in circumstances currently forbidden by law. The Canadian Council of Academies is specifically looking at extending so-called assisted dying to patients under 18, psychiatric patients and patients who have expressed a preference for euthanasia before they were rendered incapable by Alzheimer’s or some other disease.
The Sept. 21 paper written by Sick Kids doctors, administrators and ethicists was published in the British Medical Journal’s J Med Ethics and backed by the University of Toronto’s Joint Centre for Bioethics.
In a flowchart that outlines how a medically induced death would occur at Sick Kids, authors Carey DeMichelis, Randi Zlotnik Shaul and Adam Rapoport do not mention conversation with family or parents about how the child dies until after the death occurs in the “reflection period.”
Patient confidentiality governs the decision about whether or not to include parents in a decision about an assisted death, the authors said. If capable minors under the age of 18 stipulate they don’t want their parents involved, doctors and nurses must respect the patients’ wishes.
Canada! You know, that place where politeness reigns. Where the carjackers wait courteously for you to retrieve your personal belongings. Where the murderers strive not to get blood on the carpet. Where even the suicide bombers say “Excuse me, please” before pressing the button.
Canadian physicians are champing at the bit in their eagerness to kill children.
I’m a news obsessive. Staying current gives me a good excuse for not working on the novel-under-construction. Yet I didn’t know about this until this very morning. And I had to learn about it from a Catholic periodical.
Has the world gone totally mad?
Not long ago, one of the Western Hemisphere’s most respected prelates, Thomas Cardinal Collins of the Archdiocese of Toronto, punctuated a public speech by murmuring “What have we become? What have we become?” I submit to you that that is the question of the hour. All other questions, no matter how weighty-seeming, must give way to it.
We have made medically administered death into medical care. What sort of people would do that? What sort of physician would embrace it as a proper discharge of his professional responsibilities and skills?
What sort of physician would do that to children?
I have to take a while to de-escalate from this. Back later, maybe.
Leftist invariably become sociopathic monsters capable of anything….including murder….of even children. There can be only one response to evil of this magnitude. We simply must exterminate leftists wherever they are found, without exception. No other course of action will stop them. Evil can never be negotiated with nor coexisted with. It must be eradicated.
Ok, I don`t think you would allow what I think, so let`s just say:
Why don`t they start with themselves?
I think it follows from First Principles that once they confiscate all the guns, things like this follow.
Further, I think it could be argued that genocide seems to be a necessary consequence of state run health care systems. They have to save money because as much as they want to believe it, and as much as the Modern Monetary Theory and Keynesian criminals push it, they really don’t have an infinite supply of money. To save money, they need to cut costs of their health care, and no one is cheaper to treat than a dead body.
Another brilliant Thomas Sowell Quote goes, “The first lesson of economics is scarcity: There is never enough of anything to satisfy all those who want it. The first lesson of politics is to disregard the first lesson of economics.”
Since Supply and Demand is the closest to the character of physical law of anything in the social sciences, we know it holds here. May I suggest, entirely in jest, that we start running guns to Canada?
I sense that that’s between jest and earnest…but closer to earnest, Si. And I like it.
Trouble is, Canadians in the main are too damned polite and accommodating. They might think holding a necktie party for their rulers is just not done. And And guns and ammo are kinda pricey just now, y’know? Maybe we should start with our rulers. To lay down an example for them to follow. 😁
And please dont forget that guns are nearly impossible to get in Europe.
Just when you think Canada can get no more brazen, JP comes along to set you straight.
Having a fair idea of how well informed, how well read you are, I can’t imagine you are unaware of the obscene “experiments” and almost unbelievable tortures trialed in Kinsey’s vile “research” into what he deemed Human Sexuality. Stories of how children suffered so horribly under the abuse of sociopathic pedophiles actually encouraged by the beast. Those creatures of his ilk were no different from today’s “bioethicists” such as Peter Singer, John Holdren, and other deviant anti-human scum who wish to normalize (so it must be un-normal at the moment, correct?) pedophilia.
Such people have always existed, sick individuals (and groups, such as MBLA) who envision children as worthless beyond what use they can get out of controlling and then damaging them. Treated as fleshy condoms, to be slipped on and then discarded. Or experimented upon by so-called doctors, with disabling hormone treatments and horrendous, disfiguring surgeries, in the “woke” attempt to play out their fantasies while increasing their personal wealth.
We also know of those fans of abortion, many financially supported by Planned Parenthood (which receives incredible dividends from the special treatment and subsidies via our tax monies), people who believe it is somehow ethical to kill a viable infant even months, years after their birth – often from a botched abortion.
I am not the least surprised that there are Mengeles in the medical profession who have no problem deliberately ending a child’s life, without parental knowledge or approval. Recall the baby Charley in England whom the Pope offered to bring to Rome for medical treatment, but was killed by the doctors and hospital rather than allow his parents (or the Pope) their right to continue to seek effective treatment for the child.
What I find amazing, and I am guessing you may as well, is that they have become so brazen, so open about their sociopathic willingness to kill innocent children. It may be naive on my part, actually more complex than I think, but I see it as a normal progression (pun upon “progressive” intended) of the Marxist agenda of raising the collective above the individual – to the point of totally devaluing not just the individual, but the most helpless, innocent of individuals, our children. If we will allow such an atrocity, stand still while it is happening – as many have with so-called “gender care”/aka the ultimate child abuse – what will we not allow?
I think they’ve become completely brazen about it for two reasons, Reg:
1. They believe that they have advanced so far that we can no longer stop them;
2. They take pleasure from rubbing our noses in their villainies.
Healthy people would never even imagine that there is pleasure in inflicting horror, torture, and death upon others. But as you observed, some percent of Mankind have always been monsters. As the human population has swelled, so has the number of monsters, their visibility, and the ability of some of their number to rise into positions of power and influence.
I’m old. I don’t expect to see the end of it. But God is not mocked. A species that tolerates the deliberate disfigurement, mutilation, and destruction of its youngest and most vulnerable members cannot and will not survive. It is now a race.
Be well and enjoy your Christmas season.
Take heart you two. Brass does not stand up well to steel.
