Last October, the Canadian Paediatric Society published “Medical Assistance in Dying: A Paediatric Perspective”, in order to influence the Canadian government to allow euthanasia for children.

This April, Ontario’s government-funded conference on child healthcare will have a session called “Developing a policy on Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD) for Paediatric Patients”.

After the meeting, there will be a Wine and Cheese party.

Medicine is for caring, not killing, and there is a difference. It is terrifying that so many health care leaders can have a perspective about euthanasia that is so distant from the perspective of most parents and children.

And a Wine and Cheese party? This is absurd.

Today’s word is “absurd”. Absurd means wildly illogical or inappropriate.

For example: “It’s absurd to let crazy people play with knives.”

Or, “Discussing how to kill children and then eating wine and cheese is absurd.”

This city has always had an unusual degree of liberty, and has long supported Christian ministries and fundamental human rights initiatives throughout Asia. That's why it's urgent that Hong Kong maintain its freedoms, and hope for the future.
