UK doctor testifies that under socialized medicine, sick babies are sent home to die
The Daily Caller ^ | 11/30/2012 | Jessica Stanton

A British physician’s disturbing testimony is shedding light on the increasingly common practice of National Health Service (NHS) hospitals sending sick or severely disabled newborn babies home or to hospices to die of starvation or dehydration.

Newborn babies are being being placed on the Liverpool Care Pathway for end-of-life care, a system originally allotted and designed for elderly or terminally ill adults. That end-of-life care involves the removal of food and fluid tubes, a method which can take an average of ten days to result in death.

The Daily Mail reports an investigation is being launched to determine “whether cash payments to hospitals to hit death pathway targets have influenced  doctors’ decisions.”

How much is life worth? And who makes that decision? I think it is a family’s decision. And that the family should bear the cost of that decision and the cost of insuring against catastrophic expenses. But if a people put it in the hands of the government, then they deserve what they get. I only hope that catastrophic insurance will continue to be available.

I have adopted a new policy...

For each baby that dies unnecessarily I will put the blame on everyone that voted for Obama.

For each senior citizen that is denied medical care I will blame everyone who voted for Obama.

When taxes are raised I will put the blame on everyone that voted for Obama.

Whenever a reporter lies I will put the blame on everyone that voted for Obama.

For each soldier that is murdered I will put the blame on everyone that voted for Obama.

For each child that is molested by a TSA Agent I will put the blame on everyone that voted for Obama.

For every criminal act committed I will put the blame on everyone that voted for Obama.

For each person who is unemployed I will put the blame on everyone that voted for Obama.

Liberals made this mess and it about time they accept responsibility for it. The blood is on their hands and I will never ever let them forget it.

Obama, Pelosi, and Reid were right. ObamaCare will save money. All it will cost is our children’s lives, and our parents’ lives.
