If we thought legally killing a baby up to an including birth wasn’t bad enough try this one on for size…”wrongful birth.” You see, we must desensitize ourselves that life has meaning. Anyone who doesn’t get it, needs to pay a price. In this case a law suit. This level of madness goes along with euthanasia. Assisted suicide. How soon before it is mandatory lights out for those who are no longer productive?
…. An Australian couple’s daughter – now a little girl of four years old – has Down syndrome. The couple had not been expecting this, as both a doctor and a sonographer had told them during an appointment in August of 2014 that the risk of a chromosomal abnormality was in the “low range” and that further testing was unnecessary. They turned out to have been mistaken, and the child had to spend several weeks in intensive care with a feeding tube following her birth.
While most parents would simply have felt overwhelming relief that their daughter turned out to be okay, one suspects that these particular parents did not: They are now suing both the clinic and the attending doctor for “wrongful birth,” claiming that the failure of the medical staff to alert them to their daughter’s condition was a mistake that allowed her to be born. If they had known she had Down syndrome, they would have ensured that she did not make it out of the womb alive by procuring an abortion. The “damages” that the couple are seeking include the cost of raising their unwanted little girl.
They are also suing for “maintenance costs” and the loss of future earnings that they anticipate as a result of being the parents of a child with a disability. In short: Their daughter is an inconvenience, and they would like the medical professionals who failed to let them know she had Down syndrome so that they could have her killed to pay for their daughter’s upbringing. After all, if they’d had their way, she would be dead, and they would be free. But because she ended up in their arms rather than in a dumpster, they are suing a clinic.
How about a bit of a refresher? This has been the plan lest we forget:
George Bernard Shaw: Justify Your Existence
Closer we get to what Obama’s Obamacare was/is all about:
Jane asks the President if her 100 year old mother (now 105) would have gotten a pacemaker under his plan. Well now that’s a tough one … that costs a lot and maybe we will have to say, just take a pill. Priceless.
We will change the way we pay for health care – not by procedure or the number of days spent in a hospital, but with new incentives for doctors and hospitals to prevent injuries and improve results. . . . If we’re wrong, and Medicare costs rise faster than we expect, this approach will give the independent commission (Death Panels) the authority to make additional savings by further improving Medicare.”
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.
Other than that, all is well in the swamp.
