Wesley J. Smith: Canadian Hospital Pushes Euthanasia on Disabled Patient

Roger Foley

(NRO) – I have written here before about Roger Foley, a disabled Canadian man who claims he has been denied proper medical treatment and independent living services, but has been offered euthanasia.

Apparently, he has tapes of these encounters. From the CTV story (my emphasis):

Foley expresses shock at the figure [for continuing hospitalization] and tells the man that he’d just read an article that quoted the Ontario health minister saying it’s “not legal” for hospitals to coerce patients like that.

The man is heard saying that the hospital does not use “this conversation in every situation.” . . .

Foley then says that he hasn’t been informed of a plan for his care and that his rights as a patient are being violated. “You have already violated my preferences . . . So what is the plan that you know of?” Foley asks the man.

“Roger, this is not my show,” the man replies. “I told you my piece of this was to talk to you about if you had interest in assisted dying.”

This hospital representative wasn’t the only one pushing a lethal jab as the answer to Foley’s dilemma:

In a separate audio recording from January 2018, another man is heard asking Foley how he’s doing and whether he feels like he wants to harm himself. CONTINUE
