Over 25% of Canadians Support Euthanizing the Poor and Homeless

A recent poll revealed the rapid cultural deterioration taking place in Canada. In 2021, the country’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, introduced legislation allowing for medical-assisted suicide for those facing serious medical issues.

It has since been expanded to allow those who are mentally unwell to receive assisted suicide, and it seems many Canadians are completely fine with this policy.

A recent poll conducted by Research Co. found that a significant percentage of Canadians not only supported euthanasia but over 25% supported providing the service for the poor and homeless, Front Page reports.

What was particularly disturbing was the views of the younger generation where 40% of those between the ages of 18-34 were comfortable euthanizing the poor.

Research Co. provided more details on its poll results:

Half of Canadians would agree to allow adults in Canada to seek medical assistance in dying due to an inability to receive medical treatment (51%) or a disability (50%). Fewer than three-in-ten would consent to expand the guidelines to include homelessness (28%) or poverty (27%) as reasons to seek medical assistance in dying.

Canadians are split when pondering if mental illness should be a justification for an adult to seek medical assistance in dying: 43% support this idea, while 45% are opposed.

Major concerns have been expressed about Trudeau’s euthanasia law as reported in a 2022 AP article:

Tim Stainton, director of the Canadian Institute for Inclusion and Citizenship at the University of British Columbia, described Canada’s law as “probably the biggest existential threat to disabled people since the Nazis’ program in Germany in the 1930s.”

During his recent trip to Canada, Pope Francis blasted what he has labeled the culture of waste that considers elderly and disabled people disposable. “We need to learn how to listen to the pain” of the poor and most marginalized, Francis said, lamenting the “patients who, in place of affection, are administered death.”
