how children are put on
end-of-life plan

Daily Mail [UK], by Sue Reid and Simon Caldwell

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.

This is called palliative care in the U.S. They do it to hospice patients all the time. It´s horrendous.

It´s posted on the Main page Lobby at the Connection (H/T Bob) , I just finished reading all the comments after the main article. Now that zerocare is the Law of the Land, we can expect this here. Needing a ´camera´ sent down my throat to the stomach, I was denied food and water for 26 hours, a wet wash cloth on my lips was the only thing allowed, I can not describe the pain the lack of hydration was. I can only say, what these panels are doing is torture and these babies can´t speak.

Please excuse second post, #3 posted while I was typing. Hospice tried this on my Mom, my sister and I spoon fed her, gelled milk, to prevent the pain. Their idea of ´comfort care´ was a bed, no nourishment. Comfort was up to the family to ease the pain.

Palliative care is comfort and pain control without futile treatment. Starvation and dehydration do not fall in this category. I fear we are heading in this direction.

I am a physician at a large university hospital and "care pathways" are being written and will be part of every patient´s hospital course. We keep hearing about how adhering to these pathways will ensure payment. We will be going down a checklist based on the individual pathway. End of Life will most certainly be included. It will include everyone who is expected to die. Who will set the parameters and will they expand as funding dictates?

Terry Schivo (RIP). Its already here and has been for some time.

I specifically included in my Health Care Instructions that nutrition and hydration are minimal life needs - not medical intervention. I also quoted the relevent paragraphs from the Catechism of the Catholic Church, with the instruction that if my family and physician are unsure how to apply them they are to consult a Catholic priest. I let every doctor that treats me know that I am a practicing and devout Catholic. Their reation to that news usually decides if I continue under their care.

I fail to see how anyone can call nutrition and hydration "life support" and mean it to be the same as a ventilator.

Withholding both are murder and torture as far as I am concerned.

The Obama administration is dropping some new hints about how it has moved money around to fund Obamacare without Congress — but not nearly enough to put the controversy to rest.Forced to reveal more details under a provision tucked in this year’s bipartisan budget deal, the Department of Health and Human Services declared Friday how it used Secretary Kathleen Sebelius’s authority to move about $1.6 billion in departmental funds around last year — the Cabinet secretary’s version of looking for change under the couch cushions and hitting the jackpot. But HHS didn’t say exactly how it spent the money, and

Bob Costas got his infamous case of Olympic pink eye from botched Botox, a source claims to Page Six.NBC’s prime-time Olympics host, who had to take a six-day absence after coming down with viral conjunctivitis in both eyes, contracted the infection after a Botox procedure to smooth out wrinkles prior to the Olympics. Our source said, “Bob’s eye infection was due to botched Botox. This isn’t the first time he’s had it.” NBC strongly denies that Costas — who arrived to host the games in Sochi with a forehead smoother than the Olympic luge track — developed the infection from

Saturday, the Republican National Committee (RNC) released a statement in honor of Women’s History Month in which they highlighted women trailblazers, mentioning some prominent women in the Republican Party. Conspicuously absent, however, was former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.Republicans “played a leading role in securing women’s right to vote,” Chairman Reince Priebus and Co-Chairman Sharon Day wrote, adding that Susan B. Anthony joined with other suffragists to pass the 19th Amendment, which was finally accomplished in 1919. Boasting a unique role Republican women have played, they stated: Republican women have a history of being trailblazers, breaking ground and glass ceilings--from Margaret Chase Smith,

Microsoft’s new CEO is still formulating his strategy for the software giant, but he’s already endorsing an executive known for bringing hardball D.C. political tactics to the tech world. As part of a series of executive changes Monday, Satya Nadella announced that Mark Penn, the controversial Hillary Clinton pollster who joined the company two years ago, will take the role of chief strategy officer. Penn, known as a champion of negative ads, was a divisive figure during Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign, and, as a Microsoft executive, he was the mastermind behind the company’s “Scroogled” ad campaign against Google.Nadella, who took the

CNN’s Chief International Correspondent, Christiane Amanpour, informed network anchor Wolf Blitzer on Thursday that there was no indication that Russian forces were planning to intervene militarily in Ukraine. Less than 24-hours later, Russian forces militarily intervened in Ukraine. “Some are concerned we might be on the eve of another Cold War,” Blitzer fretted. “What, if anything, would stop Vladimir Putin from getting involved?” “There doesn’t seem to be any notion that he is actually going to do so,” Amanpour insisted.“The U.S. right now says it only sees Russia’s military exercises ‘within the normal range,’” she continued. “It does not see

First lady Michelle Obama will unveil a proposal Tuesday that would ban marketing junk food and sodas in schools — an unusually aggressive position for the administration that could draw the ire of school districts, food companies and conservatives. Schools would no longer be able to house vending machines that sport images of their flagship sodas, have posters promoting unhealthy food and drinks or use cups in cafeterias that market high-calorie beverages, among other forms of promotion, according to administration officials.The proposal — part of an updated school wellness policy crafted by the Department of Agriculture — would require marketing of

St. Petersburg, Florida- In the first major ballot box test of 2014, the GOP won. Republican David Jolly edged out Democrat Alex Sink to win Tuesday´s special election in Florida´s 13th Congressional District. Jolly will fill out the term of his former boss, Republican Rep. Bill Young, who died in October. Young, first elected to Congress in 1970, was the longest-serving Republican in the House. With national Republicans framing the race as a referendum on Obamacare and a massive infusion of outside ad money to try to influence the outcome, pundits have looked to the Florida race as a bellwether

You have probably seen all of the ridiculous speculating about the GOP nomination in 2016. This is still speculating, but my sincere hope is you don’t think it’s ridiculous too. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is laying the foundation for his presidential bid in concrete and steel. First, forget about Jeb Bush unless you want to hand Hillary eight years in the White House. The latest Rasmussen poll shows her leading Jeb in a general election 47 percent to 33. His name is Bush and to the general public the specifics of how smart he is doesn’t matter one iota. Then there’s Ted Cruz,

How would you feel if a police officer you knew for 20 years told you that if an order were issued to confiscate your guns, he wouldn’t hesitate to “kick your door in”? This was the precisely the experience Connecticut resident, Navy veteran and former firefighter John Cinque had after commenting on his state’s 2013 violation of the Second Amendment. The law in question criminalizes the sale of magazines holding more than 10 rounds and also certain semi-automatic rifles, and mandates that all grandfathered weapons and magazines must be registered with the state.

A report released Tuesday by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform asserted that ex-IRS official Lois Lerner waived her Fifth Amendment rights. Lerner continues to stonewall California Rep. Darrell Issa’s committee, pleading the Fifth again in a divisive Oversight hearing last Wednesday convened to get to the bottom of the IRS’ improper targeting of conservative groups between 2010 and 2012. Oversight member Rep. Jim Jordan told The Daily Caller that the committee is “moving” toward holding Lerner in contempt of Congress to compel her to testify. “I think that’s where we’re moving,” Jordan said. “I think that’s where this is headed.”

With nearly all of the votes counted Tuesday night, Jolly had 48.5 percent of the vote to Alex Sink’s 46.7 percent. Libertarian Lucas Overby had 4.8 percent. Sink lost the 2010 governor’s race to Rick Scott.
