The American Life League (ALL) is reporting on the new drama entitled, Mary Kills People, a Canadian series recently picked up by Lifetime. Starring Caroline Dhavernas as Mary Harris, she plays the role of a single mother and ER doctor who, along with her partner, a former plastic surgeon, secretly help the terminally ill to die.
“Dying is not a crime,” Dhavernas told Inquisitr in January when the series debuted on Global. “Personally, it’s someone’s right. If you have nothing but suffering ahead of you, we make choices for ourselves through our lives, and that’s the final one.”
The story line was created by a student named Tara Armstrong who was working on a writing degree at the University of British Columbia when she developed the idea for a creative writing class.
“I don’t know why exactly, but I was always obsessed with death when I was younger, when I was a kid,” Armstrong said, according to the Toronto Star. “I chose to go into a hospice and interviewed all the people who worked in there; it kind of came from that,” she says.
She deliberately chose the name “Mary” because it was biblical and doesn’t care if it’s a “tad irreverent.”
“I always wanted there to be humor in the show,” she said.
Not everyone is laughing.
“This show is pure propaganda wrapped in television hype with an underlying message that killing others can be defined as an act of mercy,” writes ALL.
“Mary Kills People is a blip on the radar screen of the ongoing propaganda war designed to desensitize human beings and to convince us that individual human beings are not precious, do not have an inalienable right to life, and do not deserve our selfless efforts to love and nurture them at all times from the moment God creates each of them until death.”
And it’s not just grassroots pro-life groups like ALL who don’t believe assisted suicide is the kind of mercy this world needs.
“All human beings are intrinsically valuable and the intentional taking of human life by private persons is always wrong,” writes Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch, in his book, The Future of Assisted Suicide and Euthanasia. “Once we open the door to excusing or justifying the intentional taking of life as ‘necessary,’ we introduce the real possibility that the lives of some persons (very possibly the weakest and most vulnerable among us) may be deemed less ‘valuable,’ and receive less protection from the law, than others.”
For this reason, “We are obliged to fight back because, as is always the case, the truth really will set you free,” ALL concludes. “And it will save lives.”
Mary Kills People will premiere on Lifetime on April 23 at 10pm ET/PT.
