Patient autonomy is fast becoming a one-way street. Choose to die by refusing life-sustaining treatmentsacrosanct! Want to live with life-sustaining treatment? Not your call.
I recently helped successfully fight an attempt in Texas (SB 303) to legalize no consent DNRs. But they have been passed in VT and MD.

What death panels?
We’re going to need a new Underground Railroad for our sick and elderly to escape this regime’s plans for them.
“We simply have to get rid of all these old people who are eating, breathing and consuming money that needs to go to the Gibbsmedats.”
Believe it or not, this has actually caused a big uproar down here in Southern Vermont. Not for the reason you think, however. Hospitals want the ability to opt out of this because they don’t want the liability. The hospital I’m most likely to use all but told the governor to take a hike.
My parents live in VT. smh
My dad had a DNR. A huge chunk of his heart was dead and he was in tremendous pain. He had made his peace and wanted to go. The hospital staff made a full-court press with each new family member to get the DNR overridden. This, despite the fact dad had given my sister a lawyer written power of attorney and she had informed the staff that nobody else had one. Fortunately, every family member was on board with Dad’s wishes. Dad had been abundantly clear. The doctor decided to punish/pressure us by saying that the DNR meant he could withhold fluids. We had pour water down Dad’s throat.
That doctor was one of the worst pieces of work I have ever come across. Imperious and condescending, to say the least. The patient’s wishes meant nothing. I still can’t figure out what his motivation was. Dad was 95 and had been in declining health for 10 years. It’s not like any procedure could have done anything but brought him more pain.
Why allow life-sustaining treatment when there’s money to be made in N organ industry? People are willing to pay big bucks for hearts, livers, spleens, etc./s
I’m surprised they’re not harvesting parts while these people are still alive...
..... Death panels?
What death panels?” ******
I think Sara Palin is due an Apology from those folks
What ever haehned to that “Do no harm thingee?”
Duty to die.
Democrat friend unionista needs your heart? liver? kidneys?
then the conclusion is you must die.
Can they recall governors and legislators in those states?
Monty Python - graphic
LOL! Death panels come to life!
Hopefully any DNR order against me without consent would result in armed family members at the hospital.
Americans are now to be USED for their organs for
criminal illegals and families of the US Congress.
Thank you, Mitt Romney and Baraq Obama.
But of course. It IS Maryland . . .
Maryland “Freak State” PING!
Oh, I thought we were discussing Dept of Natural Resources. It certainly would fit.
yeah, we couldn’t have a real American businessman with a lovely wife and nice kids being president....we much rather have a probably bisexual muslim communist instead......
Even before this change family members were allowed to with hold food and water from patients. You have to be a true SOB to watch a sick person die of thirst.
