UK NHS Hospitals Put Sick Babies On ‘Death Pathways’ – Think Obamacare Will Be Any Different?

What do you think happens in a government run healthcare program when the bottom line is really all about money? While we hear the talk in our dependent-on-government society, which has taken a huge leap forward  since Barack Obama became President, about the evil for profit insurance companies and medical businesses, the fact is government will be even more concerned about the bottom line.

Do you really think a government paper pusher will even remotely care about your case or your loved ones when they are stationed in Washington and you are nothing more than a statistic to them?


This is oh so evident in an article at the UK Daily Mail where one doctor admits to starving at least 10 babies to death on a "death pathway" (Isn't that an innocuous name for euthanasia) in just a single National Health Services (NHS) hospital in the UK. Sick babies with congenital defects are left to die by the withdrawing of food and water in a process that takes up to 10 days where the baby becomes "smaller and shrunken."

While this practice is almost routine in the UK, it is now being implemented on younger patients and babies. This is what you get when you have government control of an industry. If you think insurance companies make decisions removed from the reality of dealing with an actual human being, just wait till Obamacare government bureaucrats doling out the funds for government hospitals get stacks and stacks of paperwork every day and have to make quick decisions on who lives and dies or what programs needs to be cut. You are kidding yourself if you don't think this is coming to the United States thanks to Obamacare. It is inevitable.

Read more on this terrible practice below and at the UK Daily Mail:

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.
