I am hearing about this kind of abandonment much more often since Canada loosened its euthanasia eligibility requirements.
Doctors should lead on crucial moral and issues such as this, not be merely flotsam and jetsam.
Our suffering phobia has triggered a harmful societal neurosis that has both subverted human exceptionalism and undermined societal common sense.
The statistics are startling and illustrate that once euthanasia consciousness infects a culture, it grows like a fungus.
Someday, Canada will probably dispense with the euthanasia part altogether and go straight to killing by organ harvesting.
