Is a Path to Euthanasia For the Elderly Provided in New Healthcare Bill?

Posted in Uncategorized on July 21, 2009 by blog648

According to RedState blog, seniors will be required to consult with a medical professional every few years in order to discuss options for “death with dignity.” In other words, euthanizing our elderly citizens will become routine.

“…we should be very troubled by Section 1233 of H.R. 3200. The section, titled “Advanced Care Planning Consultation” requires senior citizens to meet at least every 5 years with a doctor or nurse practitioner to discuss dying with dignity.

Legally forcing senior citizens to have “death with dignity schedules every few yearsis just another way to say the government wants to make sure seniors know it is time to commit suicide to save the system money. 

The section requires that they talk to their doctor, not a lawyer, about living wills, durable healthcare powers of attorney, hospice, etc. Given the progressive intelligentsia already being on the record in favor of euthanizing the elderly, it is no small leap to see where the Democrats are headed with this.”
