In America, the pro-euthanasia groups now say (publicly) they favor the legalization of euthanizing the terminally ill who are willing and want to commit suicide (also called “Physician Assisted Suicide”). But in private, in their own seminars and organizational meetings, they advocate legalizing the euthanasia of the elderly, Alzheimer’s patients, disabled and others who may find life difficult or have lost the sense of the meaning of their life. Many euthanasia advocates favor the legalization of euthanasia for the chronically ill and weak.

Euthanasia advocates also favor legalizing the euthanasia of the congenitally “defective” newborn who may have deformation of the body or mental retardation, even children with Downs syndrome, some of which have enough intelligence to go through high school and college with passing grades. Many families who have children with disabilities from birth know all too well how hospital staff (doctors, nurses and others) often advise them to let their babies die by withholding needed care.

Withholding needed care is a form of euthanasia. Those families with disabled children love their children and do not find their children’s lives to be “meaningless.” Who should get to decide who lives or who dies? Should the nurse or doctor at the bedside be allowed to become “judge, jury and executioner” all in one?

HMOs and health care corporations (in general) who provide care to patients have a financial incentive to favor the legalization of euthanasia for those patients who are not terminal, not elderly, but simply have the misfortune of having an expensive illness to treat. If euthanasia is legalized for patients in many categories, HMOs and health care corporations will be able to more easily euthanize anyone who is judged to be unworthy of life, defective in their judgment, or expensive to treat. Medical records are routinely falsified to cover up what is already going on. Think it’s not possible? Families report that it has happened to their loved ones, against their wishes, right here in the USA.

If euthanasia advocates have their way with the laws of our nation, and people can be euthanized for so many reasons, our nation will no longer be the land of the free, but a land of people in fear of entering a hospice, hospital or nursing home. Illegal euthanasias of such patients are already being performed in our nation, quietly, behind the scenes, in the isolation of the nursing home, hospice and oncology wards in the hospitals.

The real news is not that one “angel of death” is prosecuted; the real news is that there are hundreds and thousands of angels of death in our nation, working quietly “underground,” so to speak, and physicians and nurses know this is going on. The news is that many patients who are not actively dying are being killed, not cared for, in hospice agencies.

If you or your loved ones enter a hospice, hospital or nursing home, how will you be able to know that you or your loved one will not be euthanized? How can we trust the health care professionals … nurses, doctors and aides, if some of them are quietly euthanizing patients against their will? When this practice is condoned (privately of course) by health care corporations and agencies, entering the health care system becomes a risk when it should be a place of compassion and caring.

Just as the press in Germany did not announce what the Nazis were doing at Auschwitz and other concentration camps, those who do euthanasias without the permission of the patient do not announce what they are doing; they cover it up and falsify medical records.

Involuntary euthanasias are similar to the deaths caused by the Nazis, except that they are done one by one and not all in one location. They are done where the public has no way of knowing that a patient was murdered, and families who cry out for help are mainly being ignored by the local District Attorneys and federal government. If all these patients were transferred to one location and exterminated against their will in one location, it would be called a massacre, and rightly so. Not only is killing patients against their will reprehensible, when patients are hastened to an untimely death in a hospice, it makes all hospices and their staff look bad. These untimely deaths must be stopped!

Something to think about: When commenting on proposition 161 which was a failed attempt at legalizing euthanasia in California in 1992, California’s then Attorney General Daniel E. Lungren stated,

“This measure would result in some unknown savings due to decreased utilization of the state Medi-Cal program and other public programs, including county programs.”

Yes, killing the patient does save money for the HMO, the hospice, and the government. Hospice care is less expensive than acute care services in a hospital. Real hospice care is humane. Killing the patient involuntarily is monstrous, but any form of euthanasia saves money as then Attorney General Lungren noted. Does this have any significance regarding widely reported inaction on the part of governments in prosecuting many medical killings which occur in hospices?
