A few years ago, the Supreme Court of Canada conjured a positive right in the Canadian Charter (constitution) to euthanasia.
The carveout’s purpose is to pave the way to legalize assisted suicide in the state, perhaps even active euthanasia.
Physicist Frank Tipler, as I noted earlier today, provocatively personalizes the Singularity, the beginning point or moment from which the universe burst forth.
The story ends with the phone number of a suicide prevention hotline. That’s just a sop after potentially putting lethal ideas into readers’ heads.
Where might we expect the ever so nice Canadians to go next? It’s not pretty to think about.
