An elderly Canadian woman named Nancy Russell elected to be euthanized in order to avoid another coronavirus lockdown. Sadly, because she would face two weeks in isolation in her residence, Russell chose death and it was justified by doctors probably citing declining mental health and vivacity. From CTV:
“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 at least Nancy Russell’s family and friends could be with her while a doctor administered the lethal injection. What happened, however, is extremely morbid:
“When 90-year-old Nancy Russell died last month, she was surrounded by friends and family. They clustered around her bed, singing a song she had chosen to send her off, as a doctor helped her through a medically-assisted death.”
Earlier in the article, CTV notes that the effects of lockdowns, especially on the elderly, can have detrimental effects on their medical and even psychological well-being. The report also reveals Canadian nursing homes have even seen a drop in staff resulting from the pandemic and that can even mean elderly patients will lack needed care.
Remember, environmentalists stressed we should look at the bright side of the coronavirus pandemic, and this is one of them. Make it so that conditions are so depressing that people (like your loved ones) finally decide to end it all.
