Death Panels?

sarah_palinI’m sure you’ve been listening to the debate about “Death Panels.” Our President has called them a Myth.

I believe Sarah Palin coined the phrase here:

When Barack Obama tries to stop this “deception” he does so by saying it is an outright lie, there is no “death panel” in any current legislation.

I think he is missing the point. Palin is addressing the mentality behind the bills and the implications of the bills as well. She clearly shows this in a subsequent note here:

Here is a quote from that article:

“Of course, it’s not just this one provision that presents a problem. My original comments concerned statements made by Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, a health policy advisor to President Obama and the brother of the President’s chief of staff. Dr. Emanuel has written that some medical services should not be guaranteed to those ‘who are irreversibly prevented from being or becoming participating citizens….An obvious example is not guaranteeing health services to patients with dementia.’ Dr. Emanuel has also advocated basing medical decisions on a system which ‘produces a priority curve on which individuals aged between roughly 15 and 40 years get the most chance, whereas the youngest and oldest people get chances that are attenuated.'” [Read More]

I just read an article that seems to show these implications coming true in the U.K. I don’t mean to attack the U.K. health system. I have never lived there. Perhaps some of my friends in the U.K. can explain. The point is not to attack a nation, but to try and really see if we can observe the “death panel” type consequences really coming true in a state health care system, whether or not that is the intent of such a system.

tracinski_new“Remember the whole controversy over ‘death panels’—the idea, as President Obama dismissively put it, that greater government control over medicine would cause bureaucrats to ‘pull the plug on grandma’?

Well, for weeks now Britain’s newspapers have been filled with articles about the National Health Service pulling the plug on grandma.” [Read More]

The story has a number of links to articles from U.K. sources about various stories where the “death panel” kind of thing is allegedly taking place.

tankThe United States is in a Worldview War primarily between the ideas of Secular Humanism and the ideas of Christianity. (Sometimes the “Christian” ideas are even pushed by people who are not necessarily “Christian.” They just embrace some of the values.) The rest of the world is in this war as well.

I don’t think we’re at a place where a law could openly say “let those who aren’t productive die;” but it is a clear implication of contemporary worldview to let this happen. Our culture actually considers it a legitimate debate whether or not the wholesale slaughter of the unborn going on through abortion should be illegal. This is not a culture that can be trusted to force a health care plan upon us. If our culture tolerates the murder of innocent unborn children, what will end up being tolerated in the name of saving health care costs? I would suggest we avoid any expansion of government, especially in the current climate.

Just some thoughts.

The Young Speak Life

Here is the video that everyone is talking about. A young girl from Canada speaks out on Life, even when her teachers asked her not to. She is only 12 in the video!

There is always hope!

You can also watch it here. wrote an article about her and the video:

Kimberly, Lia’s mother, says Lia was told by school officials that if she chose the topic of abortion, she would not be allowed to participate in the speech contest. But both were surprised when Lia’s pro-choice teacher had a change of heart.

“Her teacher was really impressed by this speech and perhaps moved by it, and therefore her teacher kind of was a real supporter of [Lia] winning for the class,” Kimberly notes. “And she had to go through a couple of hoops and get clearance from a couple of other teachers before she could be declared winner of the class.” [Read More]
