Quebec Court Allows Doctors to Euthanize Patients Who Aren’t Terminally Ill

Today, the Quebec Superior Court struck down the requirement that a person be terminally ill before they qualify for euthanasia in Canada. The Canadian Press (CP) reported:

Quebec Superior Court has invalidated parts of the federal and Quebec laws on medically assisted dying laws, declaring them too restrictive and therefore unconstitutional.

A judge today found the “reasonably foreseeable natural death” requirement of the Criminal Code, which prevents some people from accessing medical assistance in dying, invalid.

The Quebec court expanded Canada’s euthanasia law by eliminating the veneer of a requirement that a doctor can only lethally inject people who are terminally ill.

The federal government must appeal this decision.

This court decision may also extend euthanasia to people for psychological reasons. Canada’s euthanasia law states that a person qualifies for euthanasia if the:

illness, disease or disability or that state of decline causes them enduring physical or psychological suffering that is intolerable to them and that cannot be relieved under conditions that they consider acceptable

A person didn’t qualify for euthanasia based on psychological reasons alone since the law required that the person’s “natural death be reasonably forseeable“. Now the court has struck down this important safeguard.

The Associated Press continued:

The case was brought by two Quebecers — Nicole Gladu and Jean Truchon — who did not meet the criteria and had their requests for assisted death turned down by doctors.

They launched a legal action against the federal and provincial governments, claiming their right to life, liberty and security, guaranteed under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, was infringed.

Keep up with the latest pro-life news and information on Twitter.

Yesterday I reported that the Lamb case, which was identical to the Gladu case in Quebec, may soon be dropped based on new interpretations of Canada’s euthanasia law.

Nicole Gladu, Jean Truchon and Julia Lamb all live with chronic degenerative conditions. These woman were not dying, when the cases were launched.

Euthanasia, in Canada, is quickly going out of control.

THE GOOD NEWS

SALVATION

Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. SALVATION IS BY FAITH ALONE & FAITH IS BELIEVING WHAT GOD SAYS.

  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
