Skip to comments.Terminally ill patients who fear being placed on 'routine' death pathway issued with opt-out cards

Terminally ill patients have been issued with special cards telling doctors not to place them on a 'care pathway' that would hasten the end of their lives. It comes after doctors warned that hospitals may be routinely withholding food and drink from very ill patients so they die quicker to cut costs and save on bed spaces. In response the anti-euthanasia charity Alert is distributing cards to patients to prevent this happening. The cards simply read: 'Please do not give me the Liverpool Care Pathway treatment without my informed consent or that of a relative.'

And the Brit doctors will accept these cards and not kill the patient. I don't think so. If these people had any ethics they would not be accepting this policy and refusing to go along with killing patients to free up beds. But, they are going along with it, so, I don't think a "card" given to a patient by a "charity" is going to make any difference at all.
What we are seeing in Britain is the natural end-point of Obamacare, and it will happen to us very quickly. The monstrosity will cost a fortune and fewer patients will lower the costs.
How did this become acceptable?
I hope Obmanationcare will have “get out of death” cards.
What is amazing is the comments. The vast majority support the euthanasia policy and at the same time deny it is a euthanasia policy.
Does this policy apply to Queen Elizabeth? Prince Phillip? The Queen mother (not sure if she is still alive)?
Or is this just another case of some animals being more equal than others?
“I hope Obmanationcare will have get out of death cards.”
We do,... it is called the 2nd amendment
Maybe more like locust?
