UK: Death Panels for Babies - Doctor's haunting testimony reveals how children are put on end-of-life plan

From the Daily Mail:

  • Practice of withdrawing food and fluid by tube being used on young patients

  • Doctor admits starving and dehydrating ten babies to death in neonatal unit

  • Liverpool Care Pathway subject of independent inquiry ordered by ministers

  • Investigation, including child patients, will look at whether cash payments to hospitals to hit death pathway targets have influenced doctors' decisions


Until now, end of life regime the Liverpool Care Pathway was thought to have involved only elderly and terminally-ill adults.

But the Mail can reveal the practice of withdrawing food and fluid by tube is being used on young patients as well as severely disabled newborn babies.

One doctor has admitted starving and dehydrating ten babies to death in the neonatal unit of one hospital alone. 

Writing in a leading medical journal, the physician revealed the process can take an average of ten days during which a  baby becomes ‘smaller and shrunken’. 

The LCP – on which 130,000 elderly and terminally-ill adult patients die each year – is now the subject of an independent inquiry ordered by ministers.

The investigation, which will include child patients, will look at whether cash payments to hospitals to hit death pathway targets have influenced doctors’ decisions.

Medical critics of the LCP insist it is impossible to say when a patient will die and as a result the LCP death becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. They say it is a form of euthanasia, used to clear hospital beds and save the NHS money.


AH, HERE'S ANOTHER GREAT IDEA FROM OUR SECULAR HUMANIST FRIENDS:



The Disabled to Be Used for Slave Labor: UK Government Plan


As part of the current UK government’s overhaul of the health and welfare systems, people with disabilities—including those diagnosed with terminal cancer, stroke victims, accident victims, those pressed into taking antipsychotics, and any others deemed needy of “work experience”—will be forced to labor for free, with no end in sight, or face losing their already meagre benefits.

How could they have ever been the masters of the world, with an empire where the sun would never set ... or was that the Charles I Spanish one? Anyway, it was a big one. How did they manage? They may have lost something on the way, other than dignity. The roaring British lion became a purring kitten kicked around by their previous subjects! What a shame.
