Once health care becomes socialized, this is the inevitable logic: Euthanasia Could Save Canada Millions in Healthcare Costs
In December two Quebec bioethicists argued in the Journal of Medical Ethics that combining euthanasia with organ donation would be an excellent idea which could yield top-quality organs for needy patients.
When the Canadian Supreme Court decreed that euthanasia was permitted by Canada’s charter of human rights, it launched the country into deep waters. If medical journals are already advertising how much money could be saved if people choose euthanasia, how much incentive will the government have to create a better palliative care system?
No thanks. Not only the very elderly, but eventually the logic applies to everything. You are fat? No health care for you. You are retired, and sick, and the chances of recovery are 50/50? Then no medical care for you - you aren't a taxpayer anymore and the cost/benefit to society doesn't justify the effort.
It's a slippery slope to the grave of morality and human value, in addition to literally the grave for many poor souls.
