Obama Health Care Reform or Elderly Genocide

Spanning all media outlets, President Obama's health care reform plan, H.R. 3200, is being dissected left and right. One person, Betsy McCaughey raises a largely controversial topic not being talked about by many.

Betsy claims to have read the entire 1000+ pages, not once but twice. A claim that most, if not all in Congress or the Senate can say they have read it once.

McCaughey raises the notion that in the highly debated reform, the elderly are silently attacked. On pages 425 through 430, a strategic mission to clear elderly comes in a simple idea of government aided death. A term that could be called Elderly Genocide.

In the bill it is read another way, "Advance Care Planning Consultation." The term basically means that when you are classed as elderly, you will be required to consult with a/your practitioner. Within the consultation, the practitioner must explain "key questions and considerations, important steps, and suggested people to talk to." Also, "an explanation by the practitioner of advance directives, including living wills and durable powers of attorney, and their uses."

All of that is great when it comes to knowing and understanding important issues. However, when you do become classed as elderly, it is very important to know and understand that your care will be VERY limited and controlled by the State. The question of whether you live or die then becomes debated by a group of practitioners appointed by the State. You no longer have the choice to fight for your life or not, thus we have Elderly Genocide.

Even if you are allowed to fight, if deemed so by the practitioners, everything is run through a review by other health professionals who will then sign off, along with a FULL explanation of their decision. It isn't until then that the level of treatment comes into play, which is also highly rationed. "The use of antibiotics, and the use of artificially administered nutrition and hydration," is just a taste as to what you could or couldn't expect. After all, with this Elderly Genocide you don't have the choice of life.

Even if you are expected to die by a terminal illness, YOU don't get the choice. YOU don't even get the choice to die without pain.

I have talked about this but only once before, but five years ago my mother passed away of breast cancer that migrated into her bones. Her struggle went on for a total of nine years. Doctors were permitted to perform many, many tests and actions to either help aid in the removal of the cancers or the removal of her pain. It is my personal fear that under the health care reform plan President Obama is attempting to rush through, would not allow these freedoms for anyone given a difficult test to life.
