Many leftists tout Canada’s socialized health care system as something America should emulate, asserting that government-run health care is humane. But it appears Canadian officials are more concerned with encouraging doctors to help patients kill themselves than treat them.
In a recently reported horror story from The Associated Press, Alan Nichols, 61, was effectively killed after a brief one-month waiting period as he suffered from hearing loss. Nichols was an otherwise decently healthy guy, but his brother claimed he was railroaded into killing himself.
Nichols’ family said that hospital staff helped him request euthanasia and pushed him to do it, a story repeated by other disabled or sick Canadians numerous times.
