Now sick babies go on death pathway: Doctor’s haunting testimony reveals how children are put on end-of-life plan

“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….
“…‘I have also seen children die in terrible thirst because fluids are withdrawn from them until they die.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.’
“‘…Survival is often much longer than most physicians think; reflecting on my previous patients, the median time from withdrawal of hydration to death was ten days…'”
One of the points with the Terri Schiavo case that was obscured by propaganda was that they dehydrated her to death.
Society is being led down this road of devaluing human life via propaganda.
It seems likely that the government will consider “solving” this problem they created by offering the “solution” of lethal injection.
Aren’t doctors and hospitals supposed to treat illness and sustain human life? Those ideals have been abandoned by most people, so we’re at the mercy of those who control governments and run the economic system.
