Is Euthanasia Being Positioned as a Fix for Healthcare Ills?

Canada's healthcare system is on the verge of collapse and the British system is in the red. Wesley Smith had recently reported that healthcare was already being rationed in the UK. In this post from yesterday, he elaborates on his concern that physician-assisted suicide and euthanasia will become the solution to the financial crisis and that if national healthcare is instituted in the US, we could face the same dangers.

The timing is perfect for the recent media push by right-to-die advocates in both countries.

As usual, Wesley is a lone voice crying out in the bioethical wilderness.
