Let's stop global warming by cutting down on the number of old people
Michael Cook | Feb 8 2017 | comment 30 

Is this a great documentary? No. Is it an amazing feat by a high school student? Yes. This is a terrific warning from New Zealand about the possibility of legalised euthanasia. Will it happen in a Western democracy? Probably not. But why not in impoverished regions of China where elderly people have no one to care for them?

The French, with their talent for tact, dampen controversy over abortion by disguising it with an acronym, IVG, Interruption Volontaire de Grossesse, voluntary interruption of pregnancy. It takes the sting out of the raw reality.
The government has taken this eye-averting circumlocution a step, or many steps, further by banning pro-life websites. It is now a crime punishable by two years in the slammer “to spread misleading information about abortion”. Translated, this means offering a different point of view on the internet.
In 1789, Article 11 of France’s famous Declaration of the Rights of Man, a foundational document of human rights, declared boldly: “The free communication of thoughts and of opinions is one of the most precious rights of man”. But no longer, it seems. Speech is free so long as it agrees with government policy.
