When conservatives and those of faith opposed abortion on demand, they argued that the acceptance of this type of procedure would eventually lead to infanticide and pressured euthanasia. Liberals responded with “Oh that would never happen.” Well once again liberals are wrong. It is coming to pass in Great Britain.
Sick children and babies are being having food and hydration withheld because their cases are “futile”. My experience is that any baby will die after not having food or water for a period of time.
Conservatives have also argued that the supposed cost savings for Obamacare would eventually lead to Death Panels. This would be in an effort “save” the government money.
Actually, In socialized medicine Great Britain, it is not called Death panels, it is called the Pathways to Death. Gosh, that sounds so much nicer.
Here are some more sub headlines from the UK Dail Mail:
Practice of withdrawing food and fluid by tube being used on young patients
Doctor admits starving and dehydrating ten babies to death in neonatal unit
Investigation, including child patients, will look at whether cash payments to hospitals to hit death pathway targets have influenced doctors’ decisions
According to the British Journal of Medicine a doctor reports her personal experience.
One doctor, acting as a whistle blower, admitted to starving and dehydrating ten babies to death in the neonatal unit of one hospital in a leading medical journal. The doctor describes it as a 10-day process, during which the baby becomes “smaller and shrunken.”
But , the Government is saving money and they do have Universal Health Insurance.
The outfit being charged with these horrific practices is the Liverpool Care Pathway. Hey, that name
sounds nice. They don’t even call themselves the Liverpool Death Panels.
More from the British Medical Journal:
The investigation, which will include child patients, will look at whether cash payments to hospitals to hit death pathway targets have influenced doctors’ decisions.
Medical critics of the LCP insist it is impossible to say when a patient will die and as a result the LCP death becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. They say it is a form of euthanasia, used to clear hospital beds and save the NHS Government Agency) money.
But it is not as if the NHS and the LCP only want to kill babies. One 14 year old cancer patient was witheld water. His tongue had dried out until it stuck to the roof of his mouth.
But liberals everywhere have been calling for a single payer system and death of babies will be what you get. It is already happenning.
Obamacare will fail and at that time the Liberals will call for a single payer system. When that occurs, a liberal can wait until after the baby has passed thru the birth canal to get rid of it.
