Euthanasia in Quebec: Seamless Service at a Friendly Funeral Parlor

Assisted suicide deaths in Canada have risen steadily since it became legal in 2016. That year, 1,018 people chose euthanasia. In 2022, the number was close to 14,000, a 35% increase over 2021. In Quebec, 7% of all deaths were assisted suicides, making it the third top cause of death in the province after cancer and heart disease.

Canada’s fall into euthanasia shows the cost of devaluing human life.

The linked story falls into the “you can’t make this stuff up” category and says much about the callous hearts of our northern neighbors.

In Quebec, the number of cases of euthanasia has risen from 63 in 2015-2016 to 3663 in 2021-2022. Nowadays, many patients find it difficult to find a place where they can receive the lethal injection.

A funeral director in Quebec has come up with a novel solution. Clients of the Haut-Richelieu funeral home use one of his rooms to die in and are then transported to the workshop for embalming and placement in a casket. It is a seamless service.

Vermont Becomes America’s First Assisted Suicide Tourism State

In the U.S. ten states and the District of Columbia allow assisted suicide. Until recently, you had to be a resident of the state. Vermont no longer requires this. Maybe the lawmakers of the Green Mountain State are looking for ways to entice more visitors.

The state of Vermont has become the first state in the United States to allow non-residents to end their lives by assisted suicide.

Under the ‘Patient Choice and Control at the End of Life Act 2013’, Vermont permits doctors to prescribe drugs for self-administration to mentally competent patients thought to be suffering from a terminal illness and likely to die within six months.

However, as of 2 May, Vermont lawmakers removed the requirement that a person seeking assisted suicide must be a state resident. Now, people from outside of Vermont can end their lives by assisted suicide within the state if they fulfill the other criteria.

Quickly, Name 8 Reasons to Oppose Planned Parenthood

A key target in the culture war is planned parenthood. Many people don’t know racist eugenicist Margaret Sanger founded Planned Parenthood as a tool to advance her agenda. That alone should cause us to question the motives of this abortion mill that receives around $100 million each year from American taxpayers.

This article gives 8 good reasons we should oppose Planned Parenthood. Here’s #1.

1) Planned Parenthood kills preborn babies for profit. Hundreds of thousands of babies. And by payments to surgical abortionists and sales of chemical abortifacients, Planned Parenthood is raking in millions of dollars every year. They are the largest abortion providing, abortion promoting business in the world.

American Medical Association Pledges to Work With Activists to Push ‘Youth’ Sex

Wait a minute! I thought physicians took a pledge to “Do No Harm.”

The resolution updates the AMA’s policy on “Medical Necessity for Treatment of Gender Dysphoria” by stating that surgeries and other treatments are medically necessary for gender incongruence rather than merely for gender dysphoria; gender incongruence is the sense of one’s gender identity not matching their biological sex and body, and dysphoria is the discomfort that arises from that condition, according to the resolution.

The AMA is also either ignoring or ignorant of what other countries are doing to curb questionable and dangerous treatments and surgeries.

Here are two articles that provide insight into what the AMA is ignoring.

Library Book Tells Kids They’ll Be Depressed if They’re Not Trans

Thank God the mom referred to in this article was with her children as they browsed the shelves of their public library.

Oh, look, it’s another one of those books that Democrats absolutely demand be made available to children. All it does is push little kids to “defy” the “ridiculous rules” of gender norms — because they cause “depression”!

A friend of mine took her two young children — a boy, 6, and a girl, 4 — to the Indianapolis Public Library, Glendale branch, this week and let them pick out some books from the kids’ section. It wasn’t until she got home that among the ones chosen by her daughter, who hasn’t yet learned to read, was Tabitha and Magoo Dress Up Too, a colorful picture book by Michelle Tea, the creator of “drag queen story hour.”

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore, take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.

14 Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. 16 In all circumstances, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; 17 and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, 18 praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication.

To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, 19 and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains, that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak. (Ephesians 6:10–20 ESV)
