Politician Calls for Euthanasia Boost: ‘Considerable Savings Could Be Realized’

A British politician is calling on the government to legalize euthanasia by touting the “benefits” of “assisted suicide.”

Lester Queripel, from the British Channel Island of Guernsey, argues that introducing radical euthanasia laws would save the government money.

As Slay News has been reporting, several Western nations have relaxed their laws regarding euthanasia.

Initially, countries such as Canada, Belgium, the Netherlands, and Switzerland changed their laws to allow people with terminal illnesses to choose “assisted suicide” to avoid dying in pain.

However, many nations have been increasingly relaxing these laws.

Since Belgium introduced “assisted suicide” laws in 2002, the nation has euthanized a staggering 27,000 people.

The country now even allows convicted criminals to choose euthanasia over going to prison.

In Canada, doctors are now euthanizing people with depression, hearing problems, and even those suffering from poverty or homelessness.

The nation is also expanding these laws to include children.

In the UK, Queripel appears to be inspired by these nations advancing their euthanasia laws.

Queripel told the Health & Social Care Committee that Guernsey is suffering from financial problems.

According to the politician, “assisted suicide” could help them save money.

Claiming they need to save £1 million ($1.22M) per year
