[Ed. Note: Ok, so… Just so I have this straight… They need to be isolated to keep them safe from covid-19, but a medically assisted suicide is still on the table, and doesn’t conflict with the goal of keeping them safe? Riiiight… We are a long, looong way down the road to hell.]

An elderly Canadian woman was killed by her doctor because she would rather be dead than go through another COVID lockdown. When it looked like she would have to be confined to her room for two weeks, she asked for — and received — the lethal jab due to declining mental health and vitality. From the CTV story:
Russell, described by her family as exceptionally social and spry, was one such person. Her family says she chose a medically-assisted death (MAID) after she declined so sharply during lockdown that she didn’t want to go through more isolation this winter…
This time, doctors approved her. Russell would not have to go through another lockdown in her care home. “She just truly did not believe that she wanted to try another one of those two-week confinements into her room,” her daughter said.
But note, for her death, she could be surrounded by friends and family!
