Oh, Canada. This is tragic and wrong

Watch this beautifully made, highly suggestive and emotional commercial pushing death on TV. Normalizing “assisted” suicide by using TV ads is irresponsible. That a nation condones it reveals much of our ever-declining western values, that it should be commoditized suggests something more evil and insidious. Could it be their single-payer health system isn’t up to it? Is killing people easier? And how long before it’s not the patient’s choice but their caregiver, or the government?

This woman’s life has been reduced to “not worth living”. Come on Canada, you’re better than this. 

We shouldn’t be surprised. This Canadian veteran was offered assisted suicide instead of medical assistance.
