Colombia's Constitutional Court Legalizes Assisted Suicide

The Colombian Constitutional Court demonstrates once again that it is the instrument used by Masonic lodges and the leaders of the New World Order to make the country one of the most advanced in the culture of death and all that goes to contrary to natural law.

In Colombia, it is not the politicians elected by the citizens who pass the laws that corrupt moral nature and destroy the common good of society. This role has been assumed, without anyone seeming to do anything to stop it, by the few judges who make up the Constitutional Court.

Recently, last February, it legalized abortion up to 24 weeks of gestation. In August 2021, it declared valid the de facto matrimonial union between adolescents and adults without parental authorization.

Their latest misdeed was to legalize assisted suicide, which will be accessible even to those who suffer from psychological problems.

On May 11, 2022, the high court, by six votes in favor and three against, decided to decriminalize “medically assisted suicide.” In this immoral procedure, contrary to the Hippocratic oath, it is up to the patient to perform the action that puts an end to his life.

This decision follows an appeal by the Laboratorio de Derechos Económicos, Sociales y Culturales (DescLAB). This attacked the “executory nature” of the second paragraph of article 107 of the penal code which establishes sentences of 32 to 108 months in prison for anyone who “actually incites another person to commit suicide, or provides effective assistance for its achievement.”

In addition, the article provides that “when the incitement or assistance is aimed at ending intense suffering resulting from bodily injury or from a serious and incurable disease, a prison sentence of 16 to 36 months shall be incurred.”

In its decision, the Court chose to decriminalize assisted suicide provided that the patient has “expressed a free, informed, and unequivocal consent to this end,” that he suffers “from a bodily injury or serious and incurable illness,” and that he is “subjected to physical or psychological pain incompatible with his sense of dignity.”

Finally, it is specified that “assisted dying” must be provided by “a health professional.”

In July 2021, the Constitutional Court authorized the euthanasia of 60-year-old Victor Escobar. He was the first Colombian patient to be euthanized without being terminally ill. Euthanasia of terminally ill patients has been permitted in the country since 1997.

In 2014, the Court asked Congress to legislate on the subject. According to the Ministry of Health, 178 Colombians were euthanized between April 2015 and October 15, 2021.

Two things should be noted in this decision: firstly, the power that the Constitutional Court assumes to decide on an appeal and establishes a rule without this having been the subject of a contradictory debate, even if that might not have changed anything. It is in any case a very convenient way to avoid any obstacles.

And above all, the doctor finds himself, as in the case of abortion and euthanasia, with the mission of causing death, which is fundamentally contrary to his nature and to the Hippocratic oath – at least in its original version. It must be kept in mind that a practitioner cannot escape such practices unscathed.

A last derisory sign: behind and above the members of the Constitutional Court appears a crucifix, as if to say that the decisions of the Court are taken before the King of Nations. But in fact, this decision was made before the One Supreme Judge, who will not leave this crime unpunished.
