Belgian Catholic deacon charged with ten counts of illegal euthanasia

Quebec legislature votes 94-22 to enshrine euthanasia as ‘medical aid in dying’

By my count….the 25-30 year olds who rode the sexual revolution are now experiencing the bitter fruit of their rebellion, sadly.

We Catholics have not yet figured it out:  this culture is no longer salvageable.  We need to start building from the ground up and start again.

A moving video below.

They make an excellent point: once euthanasia is legalized for kids, parents will be pressured to accept the diagnosis of their doctor, even if it’s a wrong diagnosis that means killing the child.  Not everybody will be as fortunate as this little girl, whose dad was also a doctor.

I must say, I’m shocked that the court would rule in our favour.  Great work by Alex Schadenberg and the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition

The BC Court of Appeal has struck down the decision by Justice Smith and upheld the current laws which protect Canadians from euthanasia and assisted suicide.
The Euthanasia Prevention Coalition (EPC) intervened in the BC assisted suicide case in order to uphold the principles of Parliamentary sovereignty and basic human rights. EPC is pleased that the Court has followed the lead of Canadian Parliament, the Supreme Court of Canada, and of the majority of Parliaments and Supreme Courts around the world in finding that the prohibitions against assisted suicide represent an important protection against abuse of vulnerable people.

…Since then, my life has changed considerably. Up until now, I am still trying to understand how it is possible for euthanasia to be performed on physically healthy people without even contacting their children….(Source)

The triumph of raw will over reason and love.  No, there is absolutely no generation preceding this one which is more perverse and wicked.

A Canadian man who was believed to have been in a vegetative state for more than a decade, has been able to tell scientists that he is not in any pain.

July 16, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The courts should not interfere with doctors who want to dehydrate to death incapacitated patients who are a drain on scarce financial resources, according to an editorial in this week’s edition of the prestigious British Medical Journal.

Raanan Gillon, emeritus professor of medical ethics and former chairman of the Institute of Medical Ethics governing body, wrote that a ruling last year by the High Court against dehydrating an incapacitated patient to death was “profoundly disturbing” because it took the life and death decision-making power out of the hands of doctors and required that the principle of the “sanctity of life” take precedence over other considerations. (Source)

Imagine that, actually having to respect the principle of sanctity of life. What a revolutionary concept! These doctors seem to think they’re gods, with the right of life or death over their patients. They should be put on a forced famine for a week, with no food or water, so they can experience the horrific pain they’re advocating for their patients. Once they’ve recovered, they should be fired.

I think normal people, if they turn off the TV for 30 seconds and take the time to think about what’s being advocated, would realize that dehydrating and starving people to death is not civilized. Unfortunately, most people don’t want to think. We need to force them to think by raising this issue at every turn.

As for the gods that refuse to see the light, a clash of the titans is on the way. They’ll all be gone in a few decades and Britain will be barely recognizable from its former self. Contraception sealed their extinction.

Culture of death in full bloom.

Without Faith in God, we would be completely demoralized at this incredible evil.

Charge the doctors with conspiracy to murder.  That will put them straight.

Savage culture.  That’s what we’ve become.  And abortion led us here.

Mississippi is not alone in the modern debate over the sanctity of life. More  than 4,000 miles away, the Netherlands is caught up in its own controversy over  a proposal from the Dutch Medical Association (KNMG) to expand the definition of  who may qualify for assisted suicide — including for the first time such  nonmedical factors as loneliness and financial struggles… (Source)

What a sick and twisted society the Netherlands is….and this exit strategy is soon coming to Canada, too, just you wait and see.  I give it 10 years….provided civilization is still around as we know it.

Sorry, but your “right to die” becomes thousands of people’s “duty to die”.

That’s how it’s played out in Europe. And it’s not a pretty picture.

The United Nations is debating injecting euthanasia into the right to health and is considering a new treaty on the rights of the elderly to end their own lives for the “benefit of society”.

Cardinal Sean O’Malley of Boston is urging Catholics to opposition a ballot initiative that would legalize assisted suicide in Massachusetts.

“We hope the citizens of the Commonwealth will not be seduced by language [such as ] dignity and compassion, which are means to disguise the sheer brutality of helping people to kill themselves,” he preached at a September 18 Red Mass. “Allowing physicians to prescribe the means for their patients to kill themselves is a corruption of the medical profession. It even violates the Hippocratic Oath, that has guided physicians for thousands of years.”

“We as a society will be judged on how we respond . . . to those who believe their lives have diminished in value,” he added. “Most people, regardless of their [religious beliefs] know that suicide is a tragedy, one that a compassionate society should work to prevent.” (Source)

But you’ll still give the politicians who advocate for this crime a public funeral mass, your Eminence.

When you get serious about obeying the Church’s laws and letting those laws impact your pastoral practice, then maybe we’ll all take you more seriously when you preach.  Until then, it’s all just talk.

Talk. Talk. Talk.

Very good news.

Harper won’t reopen the abortion debate, but at least I don’t expect the culture of death to make any legislative gains during his mandate

WINDSOR, Ontario, April 21, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Baby Joseph and his family arrived in Windsor, Ontario on a medical transport flight from St. Louis, Missouri this morning. He is now at the family home, according to Brother Paul O’Donnell.

On behalf of Baby Joseph’s family, Brother O’Donnell told LifeSiteNews that that their son was weaned off ventilator support 12 days ago and has been successfully breathing on his own since then. 

Baby Joseph, who has been at the center of an international right-to-life debate over the past few months, has defied critics by responding so well to treatment.  After the Ontario hospital treating Joseph’s progressive and terminal neurological disease threatened to remove his life support against his parents’ wishes earlier this year, pro-life groups rallied to Joseph’s cause….

How sad that there are so many institutions that give up on life.  If we were to have left this up to the London hospital and the Diocese of London, Baby Joseph would have likely been dead by now.  Thank God for faithful priests like Fr. Frank Pavone.

Once again this underscores the real need for REPENTANCE in the Catholic Church in Canada and around the world…starting with the bishops.

Thank you, Lord, for revealing your truths to mere children and keeping them from the wise.  In their foolish speculations, you have been vindicated. 

It is fitting we are entering the season of the Resurrection.  Let Baby Joseph remind us all that life is a gift from God — to be respected and cherished.

The family only asked to bring Joseph home; but to do so would require Joseph to be capable of breathing on his own. This is why they requested that a tracheotomy be done. A tracheotomy is not a difficult procedure; it is not futile, burdensome or extra-ordinary. (Source)

This whole tragedy would have been avoided if the parents retained their proper authority in our current culture of death.  And what stops the parents from exercising their authority in this matter?

Money.
