Skip to comments.Patients receive lethal injections without giving their consent (involuntary euthanasia)
Posted on 02/21/2010 11:04:43 AM PST by JimWayne
The details are alarming. At least a third of the 5000 or so Dutch patients who each year receive lethal doses of drugs from their doctors do not give their unequivocal consent. About 400 of these patients never even raise the issue of euthanasia with their doctors...But the most flagrant abuse of euthanasia was the killing of a two-day-old child with Down's syndrome - a child who would probably have lived for 40 to 50 years.

Imagine the doctor ending the life of your loved one because the bureaucratic system is short of money.
This is what “free” healthcare gets ya! Comin’ soon to this country.
When Bill Mahr makes the hospital deicisions.
Hang ‘em all at sunup.
The Zero, Pelosi, Reid eta l. “Liberal’s final solution.”
Yup! The government is going to decide who gets to stay and who has to go.
Why ruin a perfectly good sunup. Do it now and get a good nights sleep.
That is exactly what is coming with rationcare.
Once they figure out how much these lethal injections are costing the government, they are going to look for a more efficient method - like gas chambers.
Liberals just do not understand the concept of slippery slope.
And the Dutch thought Hitler was a monster.
Premiums go up..
Grand Ma goes down!
Right to Die = Duty to Die
“But the most flagrant abuse of euthanasia was the killing of a two-day-old child with Down’s syndrome”
This isn’t “killing”; it is murder in the first degree. Evidently the Dutch have become Nazi’s.
Yes they do, however their arrogance just assumes it will never happen to them.
Are they grinding people up into little green wafers yet?
Reid will show those special needs kids who is boss! /sar
“Liberals just do not understand the concept of slippery slope.”
They do understand it. They just want us to be at the bottom of the slope.
How many of these killed people were muslims? Do the Dutch have the balls to

It appears to me that involuntary euthanasia would be a “cruel and unusual” way to cut spending.
Last week my 13 yr old son asked me why euthanasia was not legal in the USA, and I did my best to explain. Thanks for posting this - it’s always good to follow up a family discussion with real-world examples.
Tennessee has joined several other states in trying to pass a Health Care Freedom Act. NO COLAs for granny, retired Military or retired fed employees. BIG NEW fees for Tricare for Life retired over 65 Military's secondary health ins. (DOD bill already passed, delayed but goes into effect 2011)
New Dem mantra: Woof, woof eat dog food granny....ala let them eat cake.

Obama says slight fix will extend Social Security
TRI CARE FOR LIFE This from a google search:
This option would help reduce the costs of TFL, as well as costs for Medicare, by introducing minimum out-of pocket requirements for beneficiaries. Under this option, TFL would not cover any of the first $525 of an enrollees cost-sharing liabilities for calendar year 2011 and would limit coverage to 50 percent of the next $4,725 in Medicare cost sharing that the beneficiary incurred. (Because all further cost sharing would be covered by TFL, enrollees could not pay more than $2,888 in cost sharing in that year.)

Congress plans to block Tricare fee increases
By Rick Maze - Staff writer, Oct 7, 2009
Tricare fee increases imposed last week by the Defense Department will be repealed by a provision of the compromise 2010 defense authorization bill unveiled Wednesday by House and Senate negotiators.
The fee increases were announced on Sept. 30 and took effect on Oct. 1, but the defense bill, HR 2647, includes a provision barring any fee increases until the start of fiscal 2011.
Retired Army Maj. Gen. Bill Matz, president of the National Association for Uniformed Services, said the announcement of fee increases was shocking considering that the Obama administration promised earlier this year to hold off on any new fee Tricare fee increases until fiscal 2011.
President Obama and DoD assured NAUS and the entire military family earlier this year that there would rightly be no increases in any Tricare fees in fiscal 2010, Matz said. We took them at their word, and I cant believe that a co-pay increase like this was allowed to go forward, he added.
Bambi doesn't keep his promises...so buyer beware
And the Dutch dare bitch about the brutality of Sharia Law...!!
Comin’ soon? It’s here.
After Hurricane Katrina a Doctor Anna Pau intentionally had patients injected because they were ‘suffering’. Patients who had checked into the facility to be cared for- not killed.
She was hailed for her compassion, because of ‘extreme circumstances’, for the elderly and ( in some cases) terminal. Some had a DNR order, but NONE had signed a euthanasia consent. No prosecution. In fact the general consensus was if we didn’t give medical personnel free reign to decide who is suffering too much they would not stay for future hurricanes. So its carte-blanche, no questions asked about anything doctors do after disasters?
If they can decide you’re suffering too much from the heat, and can therefore speed up your dying, what stops them from deciding that cancer patients suffer too much during prolonged treatments, or newborns who are underdeveloped, or burn victims in agony during treatment?
If doctors are free to decide how much pain is too much, there will be no prolonged treatment and recovery for anyone. Murder is murder- a pillow over the face till breath stops, or an injection that will kill you in the name of compassion.
Whatever happened to ‘Do no harm’?
involuntary euthanasia = murder
| > And the Dutch thought Hitler was a monster.
He was. They're on their way to repeating history, on the slippery slope of "compassion".
For that matter ... in about 15 years when the sizable bell curve of Baby Boomer are in retirement homes, it'll be condoned here in the United States unless we get a handle on Progressivism and ObamaCare.

Say hello to Husseincare. At least for republicans.
It’s ok because Doctors do it.
A young girl of 14 has a baby in secret, she smothers it and tosses the child in a dumpster or buries it-—Murder.
A Doctor sucks the brains from a baby’s head, That’s ok.
I dont make a distiction here, one is the same murder as the other,just because a Doctor does it, doesnt make it any less a murder.
That Doctor is a murderer and a disgrace to his profession.
Those two concepts are morally incompatible. You can't be a committed Christian and a veteran of nine cases of euthanasia.
For an American family, euthanasia for grandad may mean the difference between whether or not a younger member of the family can go to college, or whether the old station wagon can be traded in for a new one.
Why not trade up?! < /sarc>
Yeah, WTF kind of a disturbed individual came up with that?

Why call it "involuntary euthanasia"? Just to befool people who do not think. It's murder. How people have forgtotten the Holocaust. How people have forgotten Hitler's plan to rid the world of Jews. And the comment about "slippery slope" - yes indeed; it's not that leftists don't see the slippery slope, they're earger to pull the entire world off into the chasm.
“When Bill Mahr makes the hospital deicisions.”
Perhaps some “kind” Dutch Dr could find a way to make decisions for Bill.
thanks for the ping
Thanks for the alert. Disposal daddies. But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death. - Pro 8:36
