149: First Euphemize, Then Euthanize—Wesley J. Smith
When people in an otherwise civilized society want to die or want to kill other people, they must first come up with legit sounding euphemisms. “Death with dignity.” “Medical aid in dying.” “Clump of cells.” “Products of conception.” Same with racial hatred. First dehumanize, then act.
Or, first euphemize, then euthanize.
There has been one euthanasia or trans surgery story after another in the last few weeks. I found the right man in Wesley J. Smith to talk about them. He is a lawyer and award winning author of 13 books (see some gems below), and a senior fellow at the Discovery Institute’s Center on Human Exceptionalism. Smith is also a consultant to the Patients Rights Council.
In this episode you will learn
- What is next in logical line after the demand for “transgender” surgical mutilation (this will have you thinking)
- How legislators hide real intentions and aims behind legalese language designed to obfuscate the truth
- Why the pro-death protocols of The Netherlands, Belgium, and Canada, and also advancing toward America
- The irony of the pagan Hippocrates being the superior medico-moral teacher to a post-Christian medical profession
- Proof that the killing imperative of the euthanasia movement is eclipsing the duty of care
