A Quebec doctor believes assisted suicide should be offered to babies with deformities and other syndromes.

Dr. Louis Roy, of Quebec’s College of Physicians, wants assisted death offered babies up to one year old “with severe deformities and very serious syndromes for which the chances of survival are virtually nil, and which will cause so much pain that a decision must be made to not allow the child to suffer,” according to CBC.

The Trudeau Liberals legalized assisted suicide in 2016 for those with a terminal illness. But last year, they radically expanded eligibility to include those with a disability. Beginning in March, it will also be offered to those suffering solely from mental illness. 

Canada’s minister of disability Carla Qualtrough told CBC News she found the Quebec doctor’s suggestion offensive. ​​

“I find that completely shocking and unacceptable. I would never support going down that road,” she said.

And yet, under her government’s watch, the government’s radical expansion of the assisted dying regime has resulted in veterans and those with a disability being offered death unprompted. 

In August, sources at Veterans Affairs Canada said one employee casually offered assisted dying to a CAF veteran struggling with a brain injury and PTSD.

Speaking to Global News, several sources from Veterans Affairs Canada said that the offer to provide “medical assistance in dying” was entirely unprovoked.

The veteran never brought up MAID, and he and his family “were disgusted by the conversation and feel betrayed by the agency mandated to assist veterans,” Global News reported. 

The most recent report from Health Canada on MAID has revealed that death from MAID has skyrocketed since being made legal in 2016 and constituted 3.3% of all deaths (10,064) in Canada in 2021.

As noted by University of Toronto Law professor Trudo Lemmens, the incidents of MAID “is rising remarkably fast.”

He said those dealing with issues relating to poverty and non-terminal illnesses were offered MAID as a solution to their ailments, which should never happen under the current guidelines for offering and approving MAID.

Veterans now say they’re concerned about VAC members offering assisted dying to struggling veterans, especially considering that veterans are already at higher risk of suicide.
