July 16, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The courts should not interfere with doctors who want to dehydrate to death incapacitated patients who are a drain on scarce financial resources, according to an editorial in this week’s edition of the prestigious British Medical Journal.
Raanan Gillon, emeritus professor of medical ethics and former chairman of the Institute of Medical Ethics governing body, wrote that a ruling last year by the High Court against dehydrating an incapacitated patient to death was “profoundly disturbing” because it took the life and death decision-making power out of the hands of doctors and required that the principle of the “sanctity of life” take precedence over other considerations.

Imagine that, actually having to respect the principle of sanctity of life. What a revolutionary concept! These doctors seem to think they’re gods, with the right of life or death over their patients. They should be put on a forced famine for a week, with no food or water, so they can experience the horrific pain they’re advocating for their patients. Once they’ve recovered, they should be fired.
I think normal people, if they turn off the TV for 30 seconds and take the time to think about what’s being advocated, would realize that dehydrating and starving people to death is not civilized. Unfortunately, most people don’t want to think. We need to force them to think by raising this issue at every turn.
As for the gods that refuse to see the light, a clash of the titans is on the way. They’ll all be gone in a few decades and Britain will be barely recognizable from its former self. Contraception sealed their extinction.
