Legalized Assisted Suicide in Canada- is the USA Next?
ProLifeCorner – 11-12-2018 – Frank J. Munda- Our dear friend Mark Pickup of HumanLifeMatters.org has written countless articles and has given addresses across Canada and the United States defending life issues. We are all aware that in 1973 that the murder of babies in the womb was decriminalized in America through an activist Supreme Court system. What many people don’t know is that abortion was first decriminalized in Canada in 1969. As the old saying goes dirt flows downstream. It took only a few short years for abortion to be decriminalized in America after Canada condoned the murder of their future citizens by abortion. Many of you are aware that Mark is a triplegic and has tirelessly fought against the murder of the elderly and infirm through so-called assisted suicide programs. In Canada their assisted suicide program was legalized in 2016- it’s called Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID).
The USA followed Canada with the murder of our pre-born in a short 3 to 4 years. Will history repeat itself?? Are we on the same path as Canada? The enemies of life in Canada are the same enemies that we have here in America. They go by many names but they are leftest/progressives. Here in America they go by different party affiliations but they are all the same left-leaning, anti-God, anti-life, Anti-decent, Anti-free speech, Liberal thought police, and they are a danger to our future generations and our country.
Years ago, here at the ProLifeCorner, our theme for our pro-life booth at the county fair was entitled, ” Who lives, Who dies, Who decides? God, or the government”. In Canada, sadly, the government once again has leaned to the left and is playing God. We know the inroads that the pro-death forces have made in America. The slaughtering of the pre-born, the selling of body parts by Planned Parenthood and now manufacturing pharmaceuticals from cell lines taken from aborted babies. The godlessness is here and now. Pray that the USA will not follow any more examples from our Canadian neighbors.
Mark has just posted an article on his website entitled ‘CATHOLIC SOCIAL SERVICES AND CANADA’S LEGALIZED ASSISTED SUICIDE”.
I would like to reprint a statement that Mark has written regarding the battle for life issues:
“Our once great western Christian civilization is dying. If this matters to followers of Jesus Christ, then we must set aside our denominational differences and work together to strengthen the things that remain and reclaim what has been lost. Evangelicals and Catholics must stand together to re-establish that former Christian culture and moral consensus. We have the numbers and the organization but the question is this: Do we have the will to win this present spiritual battle for Jesus Christ against secularism? Will we prayerfully and cooperatively work toward a new Christian spiritual revival ― or will we choose to hunker down in our churches and denominationalisms and watch everything sink into the spiritual and moral abyss of a New Dark Age?” – Mark Davis Pickup Continue reading
