Skip to comments.UK Targets Disabled for Euthanasia as a Cost-Saving Measure

In a chilling story by Rebekah Maxwell, people with disabilities in the UK are being targeted to be euthanized based on what she claims is the almighty dollar.
From Do No Harm: Doctors Killing Disabled People?:
But a much more practical motivation also exists, and it goes ka-ching. In a land of nationalized health care, every worker pays into the system, so everybody can access the system. But some people are too weak, too old, too disabled to work. Yet they still need medical treatment, draining the system of resources without contributing to the pot.
No longer does the UK have to be concerned with passing laws to allow physicians to kill those who want to die. Things have now deteriorated to the point that physicians in the their health care system are deciding on their own to kill the medically vulnerable.
According to a government-commissioned study, hospitals in the UK are quite literally killing off disabled citizensbecause the healthcare workers believe those patients arent worth treating.
Perhaps even more disturbing is the clandestine method with how some patients are being killed. One mother was a witness to her daughter, Tina, who was purposely delayed treatment and allowed to intake fluids that eventually led to her death.
This might come as a surprise to many people here in the US, but euthanasia is nothing new to our friends in Europe. In fact, Ms. Maxell references an alarming admission based on a government study revealing that the health care system in the UK is killing 24 patients weekly!
Well, that cant happen in the US! We are all being very naive if we think this isnt already occurring in the US. We just arent to the point where we openly admit that this type of treatment occurs in our health care facilities. But then again, how many of us realize that those receiving only basic care; food and water (via feeding tubes), are being starved and dehydrated to death every day in our country by having their feeding tubes removed?
Sadly, there is a very dangerous and growing bias towards the disabled in the US. From this bias, many think that being disabled is worse than life itself. And when our culture is being indoctrinated by an aggressive death mentality, believing that killing our weakest human beings is an act of compassion, you can see the grave concern. Ms. Maxwell sarcastically concludes:
And just because eugenics have inspired horrific genocides of millions at the hands of Adolf Hitler and Margaret Sanger, doesnt mean the idea is bad. They just got carried away. We should give it another chance; after all, were enlightened now. And maybe practice makes perfect.
Since the Muzzie Bro push to worldwide Jihad I'd say I'm against the Yutes in Asia.
As one who’s far,far closer to the grave than to the cradle I know that under OsamaObamaCare the moment I’m diagnosed with anything resembling a life threatening illness one of the 16,000 newly hired IRS agents will declare “pain pills for him,nothing more”.
comming via obamacare to a hospital near you.
Shouldn't she say it's to be based on the almighty Pound Sterling? We don't have an NHS or enforced euthanasia here yet, but not for lack of trying by the Democrats.
I knew when Abortion was ruled legal by the
Supreme Court that Euthanizing the old would follow as sure as night follows day. Took them a lot longer than I expected but we have arrived.
I am well beyond my expiration date but I will fight the scum as long as I can.
In Nazi Germany the term was "lebensunwertes leben" - a life unworthy of life.
I hope this policy does not apply for politicians over there. They are SO vital to a stable government!
Look up Liverpool Care Pathway
If this refers to mentally disabled "Asians" of the muslim persuasion, by George, that might just work!
It’s called rationing health care and it is in the Obamacare plan.
That’s right the Death panels Sarah Palin was accused of making up.
Go ahead folks ignore this at your grandmothers peril.
Collectivist deathcare knows only death.
“This will cost them dearly in the long run.”
It happens in the US every day - it’s happening right this minute across this nation - it’s happening in my town right now. I refused to let them kill my husband in a hospice death house. The hospice house has a room set aside for the funeral home to plan the funeral for your loved one. When your loved one goes there, that is the end. It is a death house.
The current socialist governments of the world: UK, France, Germany, USA, etc. are Nazis in every sense except name and fashion sense. We should expect this sort of behavior from them.
Meanwhile the UK govt can not prostrate themselves before Islam quickly enough.
Every society rations health care. Using different methods such as whatever you can afford, rationing by waiting time, decisions by insurers as to what they will cover, etc. It seems perfectly obvious that no society can possibly provide to every member the level of care that its President or PM would receive, for example.
Unless you have a LOT of money or possibly one of the Cadillac insurance programs, there are a lot of constraints on what medical services are available to you.
Which is not to say that putting the government in direct charge of the rationing is a good idea.
I think Ms. Maxwell and those of her ilk, should step up to the plate and be the first to show the rest of us how it’s done since they think its such a wonderful thing! Since life isn’t precious, they shouldn’t mind forfeiting their own first.
Thousands of hospital-caused deaths are happening in this country every year. No one is saying how many are intentional.

See? They can't even work, they're Useless Eaters! We need an Underground Medical Railroad.
Anyone wanting on/off any of my ping lists, freepmail me.
LIEbertarians, chime in with your superior “logic”! Okay to knock off the handicapped and elderly to save money in a socialist heath care system? Ofcourse it is! Why should you have to pay for a stranger’s mandated socialist health care?! Kill ‘em all!
