There's a separate debate about whether euthanasia in Britain should be legal. However our most inhumane form (that of doctors deliberately
dehydrating & then starving their own patients to death) is routine throughout Britain's NHS. This practice isn’t called that (of course!) nor is
this called euthanasia (-as there’s nothing humane about it) instead it’s simply called The "Liverpool Care Pathway".
Thanks to one family recently defying doctor instructions (i.e. by giving their 82 year old Patricia Greenwood water) she is now due to go on a world
Not surprising, given…
I survived the death pathway: Patricia, 82, was given two days to live, but her family defied doctors and gave her water through a
straw - now she's planning a world cruise
Patient death pathway 'based on guesswork’
The controversial “death pathway” has come under renewed attack from doctors, lawyers and campaigners who said staff using it had to guess when
patients were nearing the end of life. www.telegraph.co.uk...
In addition Con-Dem's beloved Big Society –Government, is bribing NHS hospitals to kill their own patients
Hospitals bribed to put patients
on pathway to death: Cash incentive for NHS trusts that meet targets on Liverpool Care Pathway
• Some hospitals set target of two thirds of all deaths should be on LCP
• At least £30m in extra money handed to hospitals to achieve these goals
• Critics warn financial incentives could influence the work of doctors
Hospitals 'paid millions to put patients on death pathway'
Hospitals are being paid millions of pounds to reach targets for the number of patients put on a controversial pathway for the withdrawal of
life-saving treatment, according to data based on Freedom of Information requests.
I wonder if this government allowed evil, will become more widespread as (thanks to the governments NHS Reform Bill) more & more private companies
make a killing out of Britain’s NHS?
There is also plenty of accidental starving to death…
This affects us all?
Some day we will all die, and for 50% it will be in hospital
My Questions Are…
Do you personally mind dying through starvation-dehydration?
Should it be legal for anybody, to ever cause somebody to die this way.
3. Why is the current "Care Pathway" not constitute, under English law "Gross Manslaughter"?
The only people I wish to die starving (preferably with water & hot food, right in front of them!) is our legislators who allow these NHS practices to
take place. Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, Cameron & Clegg could all stop this evil practice if they wanted to.
I support Euthanasia (have done for to pets, so why not ourselves?) however I want this form of euthanasia-manslaughter forever criminalized.
Blame the Catholic Church?
The evil (so called Catholic "Church") favor's something no God ever found time to even put in the Bible. It's called Natural Law. I'm linking to this
Natural Law article about Abortion as the principle concerning euthanasia is exactly the same www.newadvent.org...
i.e. death by
natural causes (like starvation?) = Holy, death by injection = Satan -on bad terms with the pope (which is probably good!)
So could the U.K's weird way of killing sick people (without their consent, which is therefore actually all too like murder) basically be a weird
religious practice, of not upsetting the Church's "holy" men?
