I am hearing about this kind of abandonment much more often since Canada loosened its euthanasia eligibility requirements.
I can’t imagine this being true ten years ago before euthanasia became legal. Euthanasia mutates a society’s soul.
In the U.S., too, many assisted suicides are facilitated by doctors who have not treated the patient.
In Spain, a criminal who shot four people and was, in turn, shot in the spine by police and paralyzed, was granted death by euthanasia.
The pathogen I mean is a cultural pandemic, the embrace of doctor-prescribed suicide and of administered homicide.
