Parents suing for “Wrongful birth” – Child has Down Syndrome


 

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.

 

 

Obama said

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.”

From: Belgium Eyes Child Euthanasia – How far behind are we?

 

Bonus: California solves Medi-Cal deficit by using $5400 Euthanasia drug

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.

    You are right, this is all about trivializing life and desensitizing the people and some of it does go back to Obamacare as you pointed out. It is all about getting rid of the useless eaters and the people they think are a net drain on society.

      One only needs to look at CA…. there is no interest in caring for the100k homeless drug addicted souls. They are unwilling to even spend money on porti potties… says it cost too much… yet they will give healthcare to illegals.. Wait until the plague starts… and it will, or how about Ebola from the Congo illegals?

    I can’t see how single payer and denial of healthcare for seniors is unavoidable. It is their plan for underfunded social security and medicare. Just kill off the seniors by delaying care until after death occurs. Working on the death panels will be a snap. Will they try to analyze the medical situation? Nope, Step 1 will be to look at your voting record, if you vote republican they will stop here and declare your potential condition non-serious and delay your appointment with the medical staff until you die, and on to the next poor soul. Then if you start voting democrat thinking that might save you, you’re screwed anyway because dems in charge will cause the entire HC system to come apart like AOC trying to do Chinese Algebra much quicker than the useless republicans.

    I’m not that smart, of course, so I’m still trying to figure out what the Department of Health and Human Services is supposed to do for us. On the one hand, we want to extend life for as long as possible, and on the other, we want to reduce the costs of people living longer. Failing that, we’ll just euthanize those who no longer contribute to society, which at least appears to be at cross-purposes. Then, we want to increase the quality of life among seniors while reducing their social security benefits and increasing their Medicare costs. Maybe we need a smaller federal government footprint; maybe the states could do a better job in matters of health and human services. I’m confident, however, that as soon as we’ve solved the problem with the old coots, we can then begin to focus on what a crappy education system we have, which remarkably falls under the same federal department/agency. Oh, I know … maybe we need more illegal aliens. We can hire them to take care of the oldsters.

    As to the downs-syndrome child, it breaks my heart that parents can be so cruel. It isn’t the child’s fault, but she still needs love and inclusion. Horrible people, IMO.

    I wish WP had a dislike or sad button. You asked how long “How soon before it is mandatory lights out for those who are no longer productive?” It is already here…point in case-the insurance company won’t allow me to have the name brand drug Crestor and instead want to give me the generic which causes severe allergic reactions (not that I want to take the poison anyway–but I’m just saying). I also read in my insurance paperwork that they can and will refuse end of life and preventive measures. That is NY state for you. The cholesterol med is for preventive–I don’t have either or (high or low)-but its in the mid range where it MIGHT Lead to an issue. ANYWAYS–I think part of the problem is the desensitive nature and or the “just stick our heads in the sand and do what they want.”

      Most of our drugs now come from China… the one medicine I was on turns out the manufacturer included poison in it….. Almost all of our generics come from there.

      Linda, too long to give my 20 year history on statins after a TIA , Zocor, Lipitor, and Crestor. Over that time on original stuff and generic too. To make it short, short. Wasn’t allergic, but severe muscle loss and weakness…and falling, once in grocery store parking lot causing a scene.
      Went off and on, and on and off again several times. It was the high dose causing my problems.
      Now just taking generic Crestor, 20mg, about 2x a week and keep me at least in high normal range for total cholesterol.
      Side note…now the internet health websites are saying don’t give statins or baby aspiring to the elderly. Since Ezekiel Emanuel, Rahm’s bro, a Obamacare planner, has said 75 is old enough to live…I don’t trust…so still using. 🙂

      Yeah, good luck Linda.
      I read articles and comments where doctor’s refuse to keep seeing a patient who won’t exactly follow directions.
      The cholesterol problem is really about when a piece of plaque breaks off and causes blockage in heart or brain. Back when I started to quit meds I’d had carotid and abdominal untrasounds that consultant doctor said showed only 1-2 % plaque buildup, so I figured then I could play with it awhile. Kidney doc was amazed, said at my age should be 30%. And they don’t do root-rooter until 70%. No ultrasound of late, so don’t know where I stand there now.
      But, as I said taking generic Crestor again now (20 mg) every other day, then every two days…for about twice a week. And in high desirable range, and primary doctor thinks that’s good in relation to the problems I’ve had taking it and being able not to fall down in a parking lot due to muscle loss. 🙂
      My experience anecdotal and paid my nickel and taking my ride @ 77. 🙂

        you know…been going around and around with her and the insurance for awhile now. She don’t like questions being asked –too bad. I also do my homework. It wouldn’t surprise me if she told me to take a hike–shrugging–it ain’t like she is listening to anything I have to say.

      And Linda, that prevention idea is a good one.
      My doc, who is 11 years older than me, old but sharp and went to fine medical school and has half a century of practice, told me that whenever you start statins, it’ll take 10 years of medication to reduce the build up of plaque by 10%.
      I think that’s why they say now don’t bother starting in the elderly. You not there yet, so consider. 🙂

        well…now, thats true…I spoke to the pharmacist today and she said not to take 80 mg and she questioned the dr. office about that–and in her opinion, not to take a statin and keep monitoring it.

        the 80 was mandated by the insurance and drug co. The pharmacist said she sees it all the time, and I read that as well. Plus, I was told that by the insurance company, its how Lipitor sells their product. IF I were to take it/the 80-it would clear everything out to fast and cause a heartattack or a stroke, no thanks. The side effects out weighed that decision. Besides, my husband said Hell no on the 80 as he read the side effects as well. Its a nasty thing / way the insurance and drug co. are pushing. I didn’t need the 80-their just pushing it.

      Oh, I see now how one of my Rx’s got changed about a year ago. Dosage increased without my doc or I being involved. Pharmacy calls office for refill and busy office says ok. Different strength went unnoticed, except by drug company. And probably CVS did a bit of “aid and abet”. 🙂

        well….interestingly enough, I received a letter from the insurance company this morning; stating /questioning why a statin was needed as it was not medically needed as my levels were fine (which I knew)…so, you tell me who is calling the shots? Ticked me off. I just called the dr. office and told them this and I got one heck of a attitude. Sorry, I couldn’t tolerate the 20mg and you want 80? Doesn’t make sense.

      I know “you tell me” wasn’t directed to me, but perhaps maybe because too many 80’s left on shelf or able to discount to insurance better or charge you more?
      My doc knew nothing about the dosage increase, and staff, whoever it was, didn’t check or care. Just sent CVS an ok.
      Sounds like you’re on top of it
      And I meant your husband is beating the odds at 14 years, ’cause my doc said statistically I’d have another TIA or worse within 2 years. Keep it up. 🙂

      Lastly, few years ago doc ordered some tests. Lab was to call me for appointment. When did, said my usual lab couldn’t do all. I had to go to main hospital. So I did.
      Then when I went to doctor, he asked me “who ordered the echocardiogram” (valve test)?
      I said…Duh who? Your order. He smiled. I guess some aid checked the wrong box that went to lab.
      Back at the test date the tech had asked who was my cardiologist. I said didn’t have one, whatever test was ordered was by primary doctor. ‘Nother smile then.
      I say lastly, but one day I’ll tell you about my wife’s hip replacement. No 🙂 there.

        I’m starting to wonder if its a scam–between the insurance, drug co and doctors. We live in such a small town and have to go to Rochester or Buffalo (both an hour to two hours away) to get tests or visit the hospital. Talk away Uncle Unit–I’m listening, smiles. I can tell you more horror stories the sad shape our health care is in.
