Lifetime is now promoting illegal assisted suicide in their new TV show

I saw an ad on TV for “Mary Kills People,” which is promoting a doctor who provides underground “end of life” care. The show originated in Canada and is now being shown here in the US on Lifetime.

Here’s a description of the show and production from Wikipedia:
Mary Kills People is a Canadian black comedy-drama television series, starring Caroline Dhavernas. The series premiered on Global on January 25, 2017.
The series is set around the life of Dr. Mary Harris, an overworked single mother and ER doctor who also moonlights as an underground angel of death – working outside the law assisting patients who want to die on their own terms. So far Mary has managed to stay under the radar but business is booming, and her double life is getting complicated,
The series, which was to comprise six episodes, was commissioned by TV channel Global on January 28, 2016. Production began in summer 2016, and the first episode aired January 25, 2017. For the United States, the series was picked up by Lifetime on October 13, 2016. The channel came on board as a co-producer and was involved in creative aspects of the project, including casting. Mary Kills People premiered in the US on Lifetime on April 23, 2017.
As of January 23, 2017, there are talks to do a second season according to Metro News and Caroline Dhavernas.
According to Wikipedia, some critics just love the show:
John Doyle of the Globe and Mail called the first episode of the show “remarkably assured, droll and adult. It’s very smart and utterly intriguing.” He praises Mary Harris as “one of the most compelling, original female characters in years” and Caroline Dhavernas as “exceptional” in her portrayal: “Perhaps the best thing about it is the crazy sparkle in Mary’s eyes. There is something anarchic bubbling inside her.”
Variety‘s Maureen Ryan was much more positive, saying the show “pulls off a melding of tones — comedic, dramatic, and philosophical — that seems next to impossible,” but criticized the first season’s romance subplots.

Another TV show I won’t be watching.
Let Lifetime know what you think of their new show. Contact them on Facebook or Twitter.

The irony must be lost on Lifetime that a cable TV channel called Lifetime is promoting the culture of death.
Lifetime is a subsidiary of A&E Networks, which is jointly owned by Hearst Corp. and — surprise! (not) — Walt Disney Company.

Of course, progressives want to advocate this as positive and something that should be provided by socialized (state controlled) medicine– you know, you just can’t have folk offing themselves with evil guns, the gov’t has to kill people it deems unfit for the greater good. (Scratch a progressive, find a Nazi.)

They are heavily promoting this new show on a lot of channels! Very, very heavily promoting it. We watch very little TV, here. I am guilty of turning it on at night, setting the timer, and using it as a “sleeping pill.” I’ve seen more advertisements for this show in the last week than for any other singular show or product. It was something I kind of made a mental note of after the first couple nights of less than an hour’s worth of tv… So much so, that I’ve pretty much got the promo memorized: “My name is Mary.… Read more »

Oops! I forgot one part… “I have finally found my one true calling. I kill people for a living.”
Yeah… I need to get a new life. A different one, obviously. Perhaps all that homework after school wasn’t such a bad thing, after all…

I was thinking the other day if only an entrepreneur could start an addiction treatment center for the main stream media’s acute obsession with guns, sex, violence, family dysfunction, indignant clothing, alcohol, drugs, crime and in general trauma and actually get them to submit to the treatment they would surely become rich.

This is fiendish.

It’s going to take all we got to make it through this Culture of Filth, Death & Doom. The battle is so big, so unrelenting, so endless, so savage, so primitive, so—REPTILIAN—we cannot do it on our own. ONLY GOD ALMIGHTY CAN WIN THIS BATTLE, THIS WAR. And Our Lord Has Promised Us that He WILL end it—and the date and time are of His (or the Father’s) choosing. So let us do what we can to fight this Bethamite utilitarian ethic—that has already led to people being turned into SOAP. That has already turned people into LAMPSHADES! That turns… Read more »

A few years ago when this came to light in some European countries, I thought it barbaric and sad that so many people treasured every day of life, no matter what quality, so little, and I haven’t changed my mind since.
Where do they draw the line. Some are letting family members do this for depression issues instead of getting them the proper help. When you are depressed you might know you are depressed and will do nothing.
How soon we knock off mother for small reasons to obtain her money?
We are now walking a thin line here.

female kavorkian…..if he had a daughter, she would be it…
“deathtime” seems to be a more appropriate name for the channel because they are pushing for the demise of traditional values and life.
