Rather than later. From Bunkerville comes an interesting post about how to save money.
This is how the Progressives find value in human lives. Euthanasia. In a special session to determine methods for cost savings for their State Health care which is running a deficit this swell idea blossomed forth. Someone should ask Marxist Sanders his opinion. Throw in Hillary Clinton.
So, by NOT allowing people on Medi-Cal cancer doctors, you assure their death—and by using the $5400 lethal dose, taxpayers save money. Is this unethical, immoral or just good business by government? This is the same government that spends tens of millions of dollars to keep murderers alive on death row. Confused?
From the California Catholic Conference story:
Without fanfare or announcement, Governor Brown’s proposed 2016 Budget recommends $2.3 million dollars to allow California to purchase lethal drugs for Medi-Cal patients who want their physician to help them commit suicide. California would pay an estimated $5,400 per patient just for the drugs yet Medi-Cal patients still have no access to palliative care (designed to improve the quality of life for patients and their family facing serious illnesses.) Even more incredibly, a recent study has shown that Medi-Cal recipients have only a one in three chance of even getting cancer treatments under the system and often cannot obtain second opinions.
Anyone else grossed out? I understand euthanasia because I just put down my beloved 19 year old cat that was a very special part of my life. What I don’t understand is the race to get people who might actually want to live, to die. Choice? I suppose that choice is only for those who have means. I highly doubt that Governor Jerry Brown or Nancy Pelosi will ever lose any choice in their care.
