Apparently, many in Canada would like to see the classic 1976 sci-fi thriller Logan’s Run, which portrays a “perfect” world where no one lives past 30, become reality. According to a recent study, a morbid majority of Canadians consider their euthanasia program to be moral. Around half wish to extend it to those with mental illness, a disability, or inadequate healthcare. What is perhaps most frightening of all is that these numbers increase dramatically among younger Canadians. Around 40% of 18- to 34-year-olds think “medical aid in dying” should be available to the homeless and the poor.
These horrifying numbers suggest that for an increasing number of the rising generation, those who fail to achieve a comfortable lifestyle would be better off dead. The same argument has been used to justify abortion, where the final solution for abuse, poverty, and illness is to liquidate the sufferers rather than alleviate the suffering. A culture of death corrupts our compassion and our thinking.
