Romans 1:28 “And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done.”

Important Takeaways:

  • Canada’s Gov’t Assisted Suicide Program Leads the World in Harvesting ‘Live’ Organs
  • Doctors in Canada, where the law Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID) was passed in 2016, performed almost half of the world’s organ transplants after MAID for that period, according to the December 2022 issue of the American Journal of Transplantation.
  • CTV News reports data from the Canadian Institute for Health Information confirms this new source of transplant organs accounted accounts for six percent of all transplants from deceased donors in Canada in 2021.
  • In Canada, MAID is a department of the government. The decision to end one’s life is a voluntary one. The law was originally intended for Canadian citizens who were suffering from a terminal disease. But according to the government’s website, “You do not need to have a fatal or terminal condition to be eligible for medical assistance in dying.”
  • According to Health Canada data, 44.2% of MAID provisions in Canada took place at home, CTV reported. The MAID recipient is given the medications in their home, and then transported by ambulance to a nearby hospital to have the procedure completed and their organs harvested.
  • Recently, a paraplegic former Canadian military member complained to the veteran’s department that she was still waiting for a chairlift for her residence, following years of requests. Instead of an offer of immediate assistance to help her get up and down the stairs pain-free, the government offered to euthanize her.
  • “I have a letter saying that if you’re so desperate, madam, we can offer you MAID, medical assistance in dying,” said Gauthier who first injured her back in a training accident in 1989.
