Canadian Gov to Doctors: You WILL Assist Suicide

No conscientious objection to suicide is permitted; all medical institutions MUST participate. If a position doesn’t open up here soon enough, perhaps the psycho girlfriend who convinced her boy toy to kill himself can find employment up north. CTV News reports, “Quebec health minister insists dying patients must get help to ease suffering.” That is regime-speak for saying that each and every hospital and institution is required to assist in suicide. Terminally ill patients in Quebec who Read more […]

Psychopath Girlfriend Should be Recruited for Obamacare

A psychopath girlfriend seems to have convinced a boy to go ahead and kill himself—a valuable skill in the future. Conrad Roy III was a depressed eighteen-year-old who contemplated suicide. He also had a girlfriend who was around a year younger. Michelle Carter knew of Roy’s morbid thoughts of death. And she did all she could to get him to take action. From the Washington Post story: Roy had a history of depression and had attempted suicide in the past, but his family was hopeful Read more […]

Healthy 75-Year-Old Woman Chooses Suicide over Aging

A woman chooses suicide in a way that will play into the hands of those who plan to impose involuntary euthanasia (i.e. murder). Extreme aging is the final trial that some of us will face in this life, if we are blessed in that way. Because medical care is so complicated now and two-income families rely on institutions to outsource much of what used to be normal family life, old age can be a very difficult time. It isn’t that way for everyone, but it can be. Naturally, a palliative care Read more […]

Mysterious Banker Deaths Have Not Stopped

While we worry about climate change, and Jenner’s first name, the mysterious banker deaths continue and are not investigated. Here is an addendum to what I wrote about Senator Whitehouse and his smoke-and-fire cliché: If you think there’s a lot of “smoke” indicating fire when it comes to climate change… here’s a subject on which a full ten-alarm blaze is underway. Consider this report from Wall Street on Parade: “Wall Street Banker Deaths Continue; Where Are the Serious Investigations?” Last Read more […]

Police Called for Suicidal Male So They Kill Him

The suicidal male had a knife that he was threatening to use on himself so the deputies executed him in his room with AK-47s. Why does this keep happening? Before reading the story below you might go watch a video of an officer telling people to call the professionals to deal with the suicidal… after the professionals had just killed the suicidal man! (I would embed the video here but it is self-starting and, when I remember, it is now my policy not to embed videos that start automatically. Read more […]

Men Kill Themselves because They Care about Families

Men kill themselves far more often than women do everywhere on the planet. So who is being oppressed? published a stunning graphic along with an astounding story about male suicide. Men kill themselves in far greater numbers than women do virtually everywhere in the world. In fact, briefly looking at the data, Japan and South Korea stand out as anomalies where the male suicide rate does not more than triple the woman’s rate. So why do men kill themselves? The Quartz story Read more […]

Choosing to Die Will Become Required to Die

People who are pursuing a dignified death now are paving the way for a time when the inconvenient are required to die. Once you make the decision that suffering has no purpose, and life is only valuable because of what it can produce… you are but a breath away from mandatory death. Via “How ‘Dying with Dignity’ Becomes the Duty to Die.” Now many people ask, as a young person I know did, “Why should we Christians, who oppose assisted suicide, impose our beliefs Read more […]

Brittany Maynard Delays Date with Death

Though she declared her plan to kill herself on November 1, now Brittany Maynard delays her suicide. I’m very sorry that Maynard has a terminal disease that means she will die young. I’m glad she wants to go on living for the moment. But her willingness to both advocate legalized suicide and to recommend taking advantage of the law was foolish and wrong. How would Maynard feel if the groups that were supporting her “right to die” told her that her mixed signals were hurting the Read more […]

Feeling Suicidal? Please Call Us to Come Kill You.

Man called suicide prevention hotline because he was feeling suicidal. They sent a SWAT team who shot and killed the man seven hours later. This is the creepiest, most Orwellian video monologue I have ever seen. It is like a combination of Monte Python’s “The Meaning of Life, and Terry Gilliam’s “Brazil.” Except it is all too real! Wow. The Detective actually exhorts people to use the suicide hotline even while acknowledging that it, uh, backfired for this man. “We encourage those having Read more […]

The Robin Williams Suicide: Do We Really Want to Avoid All Moral Questions?

This post is not so much about the Robin Williams suicide as it is about how we are posting about it online. I wouldn’t say I was a fan of Robin Williams, but rather that he was an institution for me growing up—starting with my viewing Mork and Mindy as a child. Since this is a conservative blog I will mention that I vaguely knew that Robin Williams was a Leftist, but had never thought about how much. I guess that is just as well. It is a lot easier to be entertained by someone when you don’t Read more […]

Suicidal Veterans: The Ongoing Legacy of the American Wars

If Veteran Affairs can’t help people with physical visible diseases, then I don’t know what help can be expected by suicidal veterans. But the number of those who have contemplated suicide is alarming. They need help. According to the Christian Science Monitor: Nearly half of all veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan know at least one fellow US troop who has attempted suicide, and 40 percent know someone who has died by suicide, warns a survey released Thursday by the Iraq Read more […]

Aussie Lectures Us Yanks About How Gun Prohibition is So Good

Australia now has much stricter gun laws because of a mass shooting, so Andrew Leigh, a member of the Australian House of Representatives, wrote in the Huffington Post about how this prohibition and gun buyback “reduced deaths.” Yeah, this is a real convincing piece. Overall, the firearms homicide and firearms suicide rates had been trending steadily downwards through the 1980s and early 1990s, but the fall accelerated after the buyback. Analyzing variations in the amount of guns turned in for Read more […]
