A British physicians 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.
Coming soon to a country you once thought you knew.
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.

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