Creepy plan to kill Grandma creeping closer and closer

elderly patientDenying medical aid for the elderly could be coming to America if the idea of “overtreatment” finds a receptive audience among lawmakers.

Dutch lawmaker Corinne Ellemeet has introduced legislation that would limit medical care, including surgery, for people beginning at the age of 70.

While it is shocking, it is real: the Green Left party member is defending her idea on the claim that “overtreatment” puts undue strain on the body of an elderly person, LifeNews reported. 

“It’s not about saving money,” Ellemeet claimed, though more than two-thirds of patients being treated in a Dutch hospital bed are over 70 and account for half of health costs in the country.

chemotherapyA little closer to home, says Rita Marker of the Patients Rights Council, Canada legalized doctor-assisted suicide by judicial fiat in 2016, and now there is a push to move euthanasia from a person’s own home to “death homes” away from their family members.

“If they didn't want to be euthanized in the hospital, they could go to one of these places,” she explains. “It would be a comfortable, nice place where their life could be ended.”

Marker acknowledges that people might say, Well, that's Canada but it's not the United States.

But, she responds, there are organizations in the United States that are promoting doctor-prescribed suicide who have been at work a long time.

In fact, pro-suicide group Compassion and Choices has suggested that assisted suicide will not meet its ultimate goal until the issue of old age is resolved --- by allowing the elderly to die without treatment.
