Remember when all the Liberals apologized to Sarah Palin for mocking her use of the term “death panels” when it came to ObamaCare?
Yeah, neither do I.
But I’ll tell you what I do remember:
Two years ago, I heard Paul Krugman, economist, NYT writer and Uber-Liberal, on a Sunday talk-show, explaining that the U.S. will get its debt crisis under control by the use of “debt panels.”
“What’s a ‘debt panel?’” I wondered. And didn’t it sound like “death panel?”
I began to worry about my hearing. Maybe I needed to see a good ENT person.
I was thinking about this as I read this UK Daily Mail article.
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’.
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.
And I had an epiphany: You know how Liberals love to call the Tea Party “Nazis” ?
It’s all a projection.
Prematurely ending the lives of disabled babies? It’s enough to make Dr. Josef Mengele (the “Angel Of Death of Auschwitz”) smile.
