UK NHS Patients Put On Euthanasia Pathway Without Consent

Welcome to your future under Obamacare:

60,000 patients put on death pathway without being told but minister still says controversial end-of-life plan is ‘fantastic’

  • Pathway involves the sick being sedated and usually denied nutrition and fluids
  • Families kept in the dark when doctors withdraw lifesaving treatment
  • Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt said pathway was a ‘fantastic step forward’
  • Anti-euthanasia group said: ‘The Pathway is designed to finish people off double quick

Don’t think it will happen here?

We have already made it ethically and legally acceptable to kill this amalgamation of tissue:

12wks

Fetus at 12 Weeks

Notice what the UK Health Minister says about the “pathway”:

Despite the revelations, Jeremy Hunt last night claimed the pathway was a ‘fantastic step forward’. In comments that appeared to prejudge an official inquiry into the LCP, the Health Secretary said ‘one or two’ mistakes should not be allowed to discredit the entire end-of-life system.

What’s one or two mistakes among old people anyway? They’re just Soylent Green.

  1. Not a Santorum supporter. There is such a thing as prolonging death unnecessarily. My Sister Sunday School Teacher feels the same way. We had to place family members in nursing facilities over the years – wheelchair bound and bedfast. The incarcerees hated the situation, and the family hated it for them. In my opinion, there is a grave difference between allowing a person who has no enjoyable life left – to die – and killing them outright. For instance, my sister and I decided to sign Living Wills to thwart the use of antibiotics if we got pneumonia while bedfast in old age. Nursing facilities keep bedfast patients alive with an endless train of different antibiotics – not my cup of tea. Unnecessary suffering doesn’t make sense. I believe there is an intelligent point at which life extending medical care must stop for those who are suffering. Prolonging death equates to prolonging suffering in many cases. Seems to me there is such a thing as “Natural Death” – a sensible end to life.
