Well, not unexpectedly, the Supremes ruled in favour of killing the old folks. (regulations to follow). Anyone with problem in-laws can now help them “die with dignity”. (again, regulations to follow).
A right to “physician-assisted suicide” was found in Section 7 of our (Trudeau-bestowed) Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and in the words, “Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of the person and the right not to be deprived thereof except in accordance with the principles of fundamental justice” (whatever that now is).
Such rights now include a right to be murdered by a doctor, on request. But to make some more plausible link, all nine judges signed on to the idea that, unless he is guaranteed this new right, the citizen may feel compelled to kill himself while he is still able to do so — thus becoming deprived of life, liberty, and security, in toto.
The state is thus held responsible in advance for a citizen’s free act, and must make amends for forcing him to commit the suicide that he did not commit, by killing him at the expense of the taxpayer.
See http://www.davidwarrenonline.com/ for an eloquent discourse on the illogicality of the latest travesty by the Supremes. I recall a quote somewhere to the effect that “Those whom the gods seek to destroy they first make mad”
