Canada @ - Same day service for assisted suicide.

1/14/2023 "Since 2016, Canada's medical assistance in dying programme, known by its acronym 'Maid', has been available for adults with terminal illness. In 2021, the law was changed to include those with serious & chronic physical conditions, even if that condition was NON-life threatening.

This (March) year (2023), it is expected to change again to include some (vulnerable) Canadians with mental illness... Canada (is) in the company of just a handful of countries, including Belgium & the Netherlands,
that allow (legally advocate for) medically assisted dying for those without a terminal illness (to die prematurely, some like executed prisoners in great physical torment, with insufficient freedom of consent)... 3 United Nations human rights expertswrote to the federal government in 2021 warning that the expanded law could devalue the lives of disabled people by implying that a serious disability was worse than death... Much of the controversy is focused on the 'irremediability' of a mental illness, meaning if it's incurable & how that could be assessed. For a person to be eligible for Maid in Canada, their condition must be considered irremediable."

Shakarian, Demos - Come Let Us Exalt Him @
Demos is the founder of Full Gospel Business Men's Fellowship International.  Chapter 8 The Victory of Worship shares that God empowers those who worship Him.  In fact, praise is the key that defeats the enemy Satan.  Demos shares that Rick Haggins and his students in 1987 stopped the outbreak of teen suicides in southeast Alabama, NOT by praying warfare prayers, NOT by breaking curses, NOR by binding strongholds, but rather by praise and worship.
