Britain’s Socialized Medicine Introduces Death Pathways for Children

Unless we find a way to stop them, progressives will never stop progressing. Now that abortion is taxpayer subsidized and even widely regarded as morally acceptable, the envelope must be pushed further — toward straightforward murder. In Britain, government control of the healthcare industry makes it a cinch:

Sick children are being discharged from NHS hospitals to die at home or in hospices on controversial ‘death pathways’.

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’.

Work in government-run hospitals is not for the squeamish.

Dr Laura de Rooy, a consultant neonatologist at St George’s Hospital NHS Trust in London writing on the [British Medical Journal] website, said: ‘It is a huge supposition to think they do not feel hunger or thirst.’

But what are the babies going to do about it, vote Tory?

The horrors aren’t only for infants. Reports pediatric nurse Bernadette Lloyd,

‘The parents feel coerced, at a very traumatic time, into agreeing that this is correct for their child whom they are told by doctors has only has a few days to live. It is very difficult to predict death. I have seen a “reasonable” number of children recover after being taken off the pathway.

‘I have also seen children die in terrible thirst because fluids are withdrawn from them until they die.

‘I witnessed a 14 year-old boy with cancer die with his tongue stuck to the roof of his mouth when doctors refused to give him liquids by tube. His death was agonising for him, and for us nurses to watch. This is euthanasia by the backdoor.’

Hitler would have put them out of their misery quickly with Zyklon B. But today’s progressives are more civilized.

Coming soon: death pathways for the ideologically defective. Once we’ve rid the world of racists, homophobes, and Islamophobes, our mastermind rulers will achieve utopia at last.

    Perhaps the only redeeming quality shared by most collectivists is that they tend to kill their own young .

  • StanInTexas

    Katya, many times the children of Liberal grow up to the the staunchest Conservatives. In any case, the child has a right to a chance to live.

    mind numbing hypocrisy:

    let the children starve, but go all out for a dog. yup. bizarro world.

  • StanInTexas

    fubar, Canada has the same type of thing. The average wait-time for an MRI for a cat is measured in days, while the average wait time for an MRI for a human is measured in MONTHS!

    This is the socialized medical care the Liberal want to push on all of us, while they exclude themselves.

    If socialized medicine is going to allow for infants to be killed out of convenience for the benefit of the state, then I expect the “compassionate” left to at least discuss any and all potential uthanization methods .
    What say you ?

    Electricity ?
    Lethal injection ?
    Wait, you oppose this for serial killers.

    Rat poison ?
    Nerve gas ?
    A hammer blow to the head ?
    C’mon trolls.
    Speak up.
    Show us how much you care.

    For Canadians, if they slip the vet a few bucks can they do the MRIs? Or is that illegal?

    Hayek, no todays liberals at the EPA (Exterminating People ASAP ) are experimenting with Diesel fumes/carbon monoxide…

  • DMIS

    Oh, The Daily Mail – now there’s a source we can fully trust. It’s not as if the ever before made up a story or knowingly lied.

    Next time do a Google search and check if there are any other sources, because there aren’t any. Neither liberal, socialist nor conservative.

  • Winston Smith

    If the Daily Mail is making it all up, the British government would certainly take legal action against them for libel. If that doesnt happen, there must be truth to it.

  • Sinister66

    DMIS says:

    Have to agree. if this was true there would be more then one source. Now a bunch of blogs have started threads about it but all from the same site as the source.

  • Momster

    I used to smile, chuckle or laugh when reading Moonbattery. More and more now I find myself with tears in my eyes–tears of sadness, not mirth.

    Obama would love the “pathway” for children–or all of us, really. After all, in Illinois wasn’t he FOR allowing the live children of f-ed up abortions to die, cold and alone, in a closet or something. Or to call in another doctor, more skilled, evil, and heartless to administer the coup do gras and kill the little one off?

    Exactly how fricking evil does one have to be in order to be a liberal (commie/prog)?

    “Sick children are being discharged from NHS hospitals to die at home or in hospices on controversial ‘death pathways’.”

    I had a little cousin born with an inoperable brain tumor. The doctor gave my uncle the option to take him home or leave him in the hospital to die. They decided to have him come home to be with his parents until he passed. this was 20 years ago. not really anything new.

    Just wondering, Sinister66, did you uncle take him home and starve him to death or refuse to make sure he didn’t die of thirst while he waited for nature to take its course.

    Someday maybe you will be the one lying in a bed, helpless, in pain, suffering from hunger and thirst.

    Its bad enough to die of an incurable illness–its another thing to be outright killed. One is unavoidable the other MURDER.

    Terry Schiavo was the canary in the coal mine.

    DMIS and Sinister, perhaps you could look to the British Medical Journal for the article that started all of this…

    Better to let that tarded baby die right lefties? To much of a burden on the state and it’s really better that way donchyaknow.

    Liberals are already working overtime to dehumanize children in the womb and allow them to be killed right up until the moment of birth. Our own President feels that a child that survives an abortion should be left to die. Why would killing a child after they are born be any sort of moral quandary for them. Professor Pete Singer has openly advocated killing children after they are born.

    In Canada there is an incentive for doctors to label a patient as “terminal.” Once labeled as “terminal” the patient’s outcome is deemed irrelevant (thus if hospitalized, and the terminal patient’s condition worsens, it’s a big “so what?” It doesn’t matter if a terminal patient gets worse, since the hospital administrators expect the patient to die. And it keeps their stats looking good.)

    It’s almost like they’re saying “We love death more than you love life!” Almost…

  • J.S.

    Hmmm, almost? In the city in Canada where I live there is a shortage of g.p’s. So the socialized medicine czars decided to create a “registry” of doctors willing to take on new patients. Being without a g.p. I consulted the registry — in the area where I live, 90 percent of the doctors listed, as their “second language”, Arabic. There were no doctors with a non-Muslim name — not, of course, that I’m wary of Muslim doctors… But that is the reality here.
