EUGENICS: Record Number of Organs Harvested From Euthanasia Victims Used in Transplants
Euthanasia, or medically assisted deaths (MAiD) as they are called throughout Canada, is booming since the legalization of the controversial practice, and organs from these victims are regularly being used in the bustling transplant industry.
In the province of Ontario, MAiD patients accounted for 18 organ and 95 tissue donors for the first 11 months of 2019 (Data from December is still unavailable). This constituted a 14 percent increase from 2018, and an astronomical 109 percent increase from 2017.
“The decision to pursue MAiD is totally separate from the decision to donate organs,” said Ronnie Gavsie, the chief executive officer for the Trillium Gift of Life Network, “but we do want patients to have their last will carried out.”
Trillium reports that the 113 MAiD-related donations in 2019 make up five percent of all organ donations made in Ontario, a figure that has been steadily rising.
Canada essentially legalized euthanasia in 2016, and the result is more organs being donated from euthanasia victims to those in need. As the market grows for these organs, there are real concerns developing that this could rapidly turn into a modern-day eugenics program.
Trillium has helped to blur the lines in Ontario, and they have been reaching out to convince individuals seeking euthanasia about participating in the organ donation program.
“And, as part of high-quality end-of life care, we make sure that all patients and families are provided with the information they need and the opportunity to make a decision on whether they wish to make a donation,” Gavsie said.
“That just follows the logical protocol under the law and the humane approach for those who are undergoing medical assistance in dying. And it’s the right thing to do for those on the wait list,” she added.
Trillium notes that their state-funded propaganda campaign to convince euthanasia victims to surrender their organs to the government bureaucracy is succeeding.
“The striking thing about patients who have medical assistance in dying is that they have a very clear vision about what they want, and they have the capacity to make their own decisions,” said Dr. Andrew Healey, Trillium’s chief medical officer of donations.
“We want people to hear about the opportunities they have and then make the right choice for them. There are several patients we’ve spoken to who had initially planned to die at home, but that wasn’t as important to them as helping other people,” he added.
The Trillium Gift of Life Network is a government agency founded in 2002 to facilitate organ donations in the province of Ontario. However, because of the prevalence of euthanasia in liberal-dominated Canada, they may be opening the door for eugenics as organs are harvested at an alarming rate from those killed by the state.
