‘Post-Christian Social Ethics’: Alarming Number of Young Canadians Think the Poor, Mentally Ill Should be Eligible for Voluntary Extermination

(The Blaze) – Canada is one of several Western nations rushing to loosen the laws around euthanasia.

A new survey from the Vancouver-based market research outfit Research Co. has found that 73% of Canadians support the current euthanasia regime in Canada, whereby adults with an irremediable medical condition can consent to be put down by the state.

However, a significant cohort of younger respondents indicated a keenness to radically expand the option to the poor and the homeless. CONTINUE
