Ontario Death Panels: Where Bureaucrats Decide A Young Mother's Life Is Not Worth Saving

So, if socialized medicine is so great, why does this woman have to plead for medicine that will give her more time with her two young children? 

Video here. 

"Health Canada has approved Avastin for the treatment of glioblastoma multiforme. However, Ontario only covers the cost of the drug for colorectal cancera funding decision made by the province’s drug evaluation committee."

This mother was told: no dice.

No life-prolonging drugs for you-we will not pay for a few more days for you with your children.

We are your betters, we know best.

We OWN your body.

"The health minister also said she has confidence in Ontario’s evidence-based system of drug review and approval."


Where is the evidence that this mother should not have a few more days or months with her family?

Where is the evidence? 
I think that these decisions should be made by experts. I do not think these decisions should be made by politicians.”


I think they should be made by individuals.

This is the natural result of a socialized system, the natural result of the state owning your body and those of your children and loved ones.

This is one of the creepiest, most disgusting stories from Ontario's socialized medical system that I have seen in a while.

What is the difference between being sentenced to death by a punitive bureaucracy and murder?
