Skip to comments.Dr. Mark Mostert: Euthanizing Children in the US – Yes, it’s Here
Posted on 04/20/2010 4:45:34 PM PDT by wagglebee
The latest edition of a prestigious medical journal, The Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, has published a very disturbing piece of research. While the study is very small, the fact that it was done at all suggests that there might be a larger problem across the country: Euthanizing children right here in the US.
The study, of course, doesnt talk about euthanasia. Heres the title: Considerations About Hastening Death Among Parents of Children Who Die of Cancer.
I see. Its not euthanasia, its hastening death. Sounds so much more, well, clinical, dont you think?
Essentially, the researchers wanted to know, in terms of actual cases and presented possible scenarios, what parents attitudes were toward euthanasia when a child was terminally ill with cancer. No surprise, the more the actual case or scenario involved high levels of pain and suffering, the more likely parents were to consider euthanasia
Sorry, I meant hastening death.
Now, if the study only used contrived scenarios, the findings would be important, because they show, among other things, that parents are ignorant of palliative measures that can make terminally ill children comfortable in their final days.
However, among parents interviewed who literally had terminally ill children with cancer, there were several who actually discussed euthanasia for their child with their doctor, and, in three instances, where parents reported that the euthanasia was carried out.
Frightening, and even more so when you consider how small the study was.
And, its absolutely probable that if its happening in the two hospitals covered by the study, its going on all over the country behind closed doors after whispered conversations.
Killing children because they are sick.
Here in these United States.
This is how things started in the Netherlands.
Lets so all we can to make sure it doesnt happen here.
I wonder how long it will be before Zero and his czars start denouncing the "worthless eaters".
I give up. The world is doomed.

I think either Zero or one of the famous czars (sorry, I don’t remember who, but it caught my attention) has already mentioned something about “nonproductive” people.
John Holdren is the czar.
>> I give up. The world is doomed.
The World is doomed if we give up.
Yep,I agree.We must be getting close to the end.
Yes, John Holdren probably was the one who said this.
We can’t give up, but I think one of the reasons for the attacks on the Catholic Church now is that the Church has held fast on this.
HOWEVER, there are a bunch of nuns who seem to be in charge of the Catholic hospital association who are out there licking Obama’s toes on this and every other issue. The Vatican has to be told that the Pope must get these ladies out of there and make the Catholic stance clear and unequivocal.
The Nazis used to refer to “useless eaters”.The current regime in this country is not all that different.
I’m about to reach the age to go before the death panel once Bambi’s plan is implemented. I’m going to refuse to go.
What can they do to me? Kill me? They were going to do that anyway.
For an historical perspective.
this is how it starts.

This article, Useless Eaters by Dr. Mark Mostert is the best that I have ever read on the subject:
The lefties still have to come up wiht a better more simpler word for it. Simplify the language, cut out all the non-essential words.
>> The Vatican has to be told that the Pope must get these ladies out of there and make the Catholic stance clear and unequivocal.
The line of when to start the “hastening” creeps and creeps and creeps.
There is often no discernable difference between palliative measures and euthanasia. The intent is different, but the end result is the same.
Death is therefore inevitable and can only be hastened for anyone, not just the immediately threatened.
Even if you are perfectly healthy and I kill you now, I have only hastened your death,
not brought about something that would never have happened eventually.
“Hastening” death by even a second is the definition of murder.
Most people are so easily fooled or their guilt lessened by the right euphemism.
