It is about to get A LOT worse.
But then Greer, Felos, and HINO may get what they deserve a lot sooner than expected.
No, they will be exempted (kind of like how nobody seemed to care that Hitler, Goebbels, Mengele, Eichmann, Himmler and Goering weren’t 6 foot, blond, blue eyed “Aryans”).
In 2000, 11.0% of the severely cognitively impaired residents of the United States were starved and dehydrated to death.
In 2001, 11.4% of the severely cognitively impaired residents of the United States were starved and dehydrated to death.
I haven't found data yet for other years, but I think it's a fair guess that the killings continue to climb.
This doesn't represent a percentage of patients who died (which would be bad enough). It doesn't mean that 11.4% of the patients who died were starved and dehydrated. It means 11.4% of all the people living in the U.S.A. with severe cognitive impairments were killed this way. And it doesn't include the ones who were killed using other methods, such as denial of antibiotics for simple infections, removal of breathing assistance, etc.
The standard used for determining severe cognitive impairment for the purpose of this study is a score of 5 or less on the Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE). Patients in a coma or PVS cannot possibly score 1, much less 5. You've probably seen people in the grocery store with a score of 5 or less. So these killings include a wide range of brain damaged people. I wonder how many thousands of people are living with a score of 5 or less. And for every 1,000 people living with a score of 5 or less in the year 2001, 114 of them were starved and dehydrated to death that year.
All I have before me are the percentages. I'd like to see the corresponding numbers. Or would I?
Following is the breakdown by state for 2001. Notice that Rhode Island tops the list, with just over a third of that population exterminated this way. That might have something to do with the fact that RI has appointed the pro-euthanasia group Choice in Dying the official State agency in charge of informing the public about end-of-life choices. They supply forms for living wills and assist the public in filling out those forms. This is what happens when you put the fox in charge of the henhouse.
Believe it or not, Florida and Texas are both below the national average. Every state is on the list. Georgia is at the bottom of the list, exterminating only 1.30% this way.

Facts On Dying ~ This study was funded by The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, who adamantly opposes the rights of vulnerable people to continue living. So if any trolls show up, complaining that the data is skewed in favor of life, check the facts and get back to me.
Rhode Island is also the only state in America with an outright Roman Catholic majority, btw.
Jim King, who considered his proudest moment to be when he got legislation enacted which contributed to the torture and murder of Terri Schiavo, died just a few days ago. I sincerely doubt that he chose to be tortured to death like Terri.
Rhode Island is also the most liberal state in the country and absolute PROOF of the damage that Vatican II and CINO bishops have done.

President Obamas top science adviser said in a book he co-authored in 1973 that a newborn child will ultimately develop into a human being if he or she is properly fed and socialized.
The fetus, given the opportunity to develop properly before birth, and given the essential early socializing experiences and sufficient nourishing food during the crucial early years after birth, will ultimately develop into a human being, John P. Holdren, director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, wrote in Human Ecology: Problems and Solutions.
Holdren co-authored the book with Stanford professors Paul R. Ehrlich and Anne H. Ehrlich. The book was published by W.H. Freeman and Company.
At the time Human Ecology was published, Holdren was a senior research fellow at the California Institute of Technology. Paul Ehrlich, currently president of The Center for Conservation Biology at Stanford, is also author of the 1968 bestseller, The Population Bomb, a book the Washington Post said launched the popular movement for zero population growth.
Human Ecology: Problems and Solutions argued that the human race faced dire consequences unless human population growth was stopped.
Human values and institutions have set mankind on a collision course with the laws of nature, wrote the Ehrlichs and Holdren. Human beings cling jealously to their prerogative to reproduce as they pleaseand they please to make each new generation larger than the lastyet endless multiplication on a finite planet is impossible. Most humans aspire to greater material prosperity, but the number of people that can be supported on Earth if everyone is rich is even smaller than if everyone is poor.
The specific passage expressing the authors view that a baby will ultimately develop into a human being is on page 235 in chapter 8 of the book, which is titled Population Limitation. . . .
