Words simply fail me when I read the whole article, (Hat Tip Gateway Pundit). If anyone doesn’t think this will happen here with the full implementation of Obamacare you are at best delusional. We now already know that bureaucratic care panels are in fact part of the package. So you can count on stories like this coming to a hospital near you.
It too bad that this is happening in a so called advanced western society, who is to know what the outcome of any child born with defect will be. Just last year a friend of mine had a little girl who was born with a tumor on her heart. The child just celebrated her 1st birthday after a successful heart transplant carried out earlier this year at Duke medical. If this had been in England there probably would not be this same happy outcome.
Here are some quotes from the article and a link to the Daily Mail for the whole thing.
Sick children are being discharged from NHS hospitals to die at home or in hospices on controversial ‘death pathways’.Until now, end of life regime the Liverpool Care Pathway was thought to have involved only elderly and terminally-ill adults.
But the Mail can reveal the practice of withdrawing food and fluid by tube is being used on young patients as well as severely disabled newborn babies.One doctor has admitted starving and dehydrating ten babies to death in the neonatal unit of one hospital alone.Writing in a leading medical journal, the physician revealed the process can take an average of ten days during which a baby becomes ‘smaller and shrunken’.The LCP – on which 130,000 elderly and terminally-ill adult patients die each year – is now the subject of an independent inquiry ordered by ministers.
The use of end of life care methods on disabled newborn babies was revealed in the doctors’ bible, the British Medical Journal.
