New York Post has just revealed the fact that Canada has delayed the extension of its assisted suicide program to people suffering solely from mental illness, health officials announced Monday.
“Canada offers medically assisted death to terminally and chronically ill people, but the plan to extend the program to people with mental illnesses has divided Canadians, the New York Times reported.”
Some critics attribute the problem to a lack of adequate psychiatric care in the country.
The controversial policy would allow anyone in Canada with an incurable medical condition to apply for assisted suicide, even if the disease is not terminal – this law is one of the most liberal assisted suicide programs in the world.
Someone commented: “Why would Canada be okay with assisted suicide of those suffering from mental health issues instead of funding and/ or supporting known alternative treatment methods used in other countries. Personally…I believe in the adage…You give it all until the end.”
According to a report by the Daily Mail, over 13,000 Canadians underwent euthanasia in 2022 under a government program. The program had faced opposition from some conservative lawmakers when it was announced in the previous year. Justin Trudeau is promoting a ‘culture of death.’”
“Have we gone too far and too fast with Canada’s assisted suicide program?” Conservative MP Ed Fast said.
“Will we evolve into a culture of death as the preferred option for those who suffer from mental illness or will we choose life?”
