[LifeSiteNews.com] OTTAWA, June 21, 2019 ― Organs are being harvested from some people who have been euthanized in Canada, creating an ethical situation that some critics say amounts to a conflict of interest.

On June 18, The Wall Street Journal published an article by law professor Frank Buckley revealing that “about 30 euthanasia patients in Canada have donated their organs after death since 2016.”

Buckley noted that the Canadian Medical Association (CMA) has issued guidelines for how the harvesting of organs from people who elect to be killed by medical practitioners should work. Despite some hand-wringing about ethics, the June 3 document allows doctors to canvas their vulnerable, suicidal patients for their organs.

“The grim document describes how the organ donation and euthanasia decisions might be disentangled, but allows doctors to raise the possibility of organ donation with their vulnerable, suicidal patients,” he wrote.

“It also clarifies that organ removal should not begin until the patient is medically deceased (sic) and the heart has stopped beating.”
