The British Health Secretary calls it "a fantastic step forward":
Up to 60,000 patients die on the Liverpool Care Pathway each year without giving their consent, shocking figures revealed yesterday.
A third of families are also kept in the dark when doctors withdraw lifesaving treatment from loved ones.
Despite the revelations, Jeremy Hunt last night claimed the pathway was a ‘fantastic step forward’.
As might be expected, a fair number of folks disagree. The LCP, as it's referred to, amounts to nothing less than protracted euthansia, in which the target selected for death is sedated as food and hydration are withdrawn. Expect this - or a similar protocol - to be implemented in America as Obamacare is fully deployed; the old farts and the disabled children, after all, make no contribution to the economy.
