Euthanasia - Carter v. Canada

Euthanasia is set to be legalized in Canada by June 6, 2016. This is yet another milestone in an evil and hedonistic society which will stop at nothing for its own convenience. No longer fearful of God we have made ourselves God.

In the Supreme Court case Carter v. Canada the court ruled the following:
Section 241 (b) and s. 14  of the Criminal Code  unjustifiably infringe s. 7  of the Charter  and are of no force or effect to the extent that they prohibit physician-assisted death for a competent adult person who (1) clearly consents to the termination of life and (2) has a grievous and irremediable medical condition (including an illness, disease or disability) that causes enduring suffering that is intolerable to the individual in the circumstances of his or her condition (Italics mine).
This ruling is vague and open to interpretation. Andrew Coyne writing for the National Post sees the inevitable path of this ruling clearly.
Some day, someone is going to bring a case before the Court arguing that children with an incurable disease and in “intolerable” pain should also have the right to assisted suicide, perhaps with their parents’ consent. Is the Court really going to condemn them to endure years of excruciating pain until they are of age? Likewise, is it really prepared to leave the mentally incompetent to suffer unbearably, when with the signature of a legal guardian they could be released? Or if personal autonomy is all, why should a “grievous and irremediable medical condition” be required? Isn’t it enough that you want to be dead, but need someone to help?
It is interesting that in a country where the death penalty is abolished, a major reason for which is most likely the small possibility of executing an innocent person, that we are now going to legalize the killing of non-criminals. The court apparently does not see the similarities, which should be of no surprise for such an egotistical bunch.
An absolute prohibition on physician-assisted dying is rationally connected to the goal of protecting the vulnerable from taking their life in times of weakness, because prohibiting an activity that poses certain risks is a rational method of curtailing the risks. However, as the trial judge found, the evidence does not support the contention that a blanket prohibition is necessary in order to substantially meet the government’s objective. The trial judge made no palpable and overriding error in concluding, on the basis of evidence from scientists, medical practitioners, and others who are familiar with end-of-life decision-making in Canada and abroad, that a permissive regime with properly designed and administered safeguards was capable of protecting vulnerable people from abuse and error.
The Supreme Court must have a lot of faith in our medical system, compared to the justice system over which it is Supreme. The hypocrisy of the Supreme court in this decision will also make doctors take the Hypocritic Oath instead of the Hippocratic oath, which states:
Most especially must I tread with care in matters of life and death. Above all, I must not play at God.
It is frightening how little concern the Supreme Court has regarding individual freedom of conscience being unwilling to make any statement protecting this freedom. The Quebec government is already using Bill C-52 to cut funding to doctors who do not kill people, essentially trying to coerce other doctors to fall in line.

Don't think that the government will stop forcing its religion on just doctors because they will eventually come after you. It is time to stand up against the evil in our society and make our voices known lest we say like Martin Niemoller:
First they came for the Unborn, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not an Unborn.
Then they came for the Terminally Ill, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not Terminally Ill.
Then they came for the Old and Infirm, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not Old and Infirm.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
