The pathogen I mean is a cultural pandemic, the embrace of doctor-prescribed suicide and of administered homicide.
Canada is our closest cultural cousin: We had better be careful, or the same thing could happen here.
Someday, Canada will probably dispense with the euthanasia part altogether and go straight to killing by organ harvesting.
A few years ago, the Supreme Court of Canada conjured a positive right in the Canadian Charter (constitution) to euthanasia.
Where might we expect the ever so nice Canadians to go next? It’s not pretty to think about.
