Socialized Health Care could have a new slogan: “Hurry up and die already!”
Remember when the Left laughed at the idea of the natural end point of Socialized health care resulting in ‘death panels’?
Remeber how the Left tried to say that financials keeping Medicare solvent was ‘throwing grandma off a cliff’, but Socialized Health Care could somehow offer infinite health care to the people and the free money fairy (i.e. Government) will fund it?
The so-called Utopian Canadian system — which the Left praised to the heavens — is in the news because one patient — who had been chronically NEGLECTED by medical staff — appealed for assisted home care so he could leave the system where he had been neglected.
What two ‘caregivers’ said to him in his room is making waves.
One of the promises Trudeau made when running for Prime Minister of Canada, was ‘right to die’ legislation. Only a couple of years later, ‘health care’ providers are pressuring a chronically ill patient to hurry up and die.
That patient is Roger Foley, and he’s only 42 years old.
Roger Foley, 42, who earlier this year launched a landmark lawsuit against a London hospital, several health agencies, the Ontario government and the federal government, alleges that health officials will not provide him with an assisted home care team of his choosing, instead offering, among other things, medically assisted death.
Foley suffers from cerebellar ataxia, a brain disorder that limits his ability to move his arms and legs, and prevents him from independently performing daily tasks.
In his lawsuit, Foley claims that a government-selected home care provider had previously left him in ill health with injuries and food poisoning. He claims that he has been denied the right to self-directed care, which allows certain patients to take a central role in planning and receiving personal and medical services from the comfort of their own homes.
He is now sharing audio recordings of separate conversations he had with two health care workers at London Health Sciences Centre, where he has been stuck in a hospital bed for more than two years.
In one audio recording from September 2017, Foley is heard speaking to a man about what he has described as attempts at a “forced discharge,” with threats of a hefty hospital bill.
When Foley asks the man how much he’d have to pay to remain in hospital, the man replies, “I don’t know what the exact number is, but it is north of $1,500 a day.”
It gets worse.
The man is heard saying that the hospital does not use “this conversation in every situation.”
“It is only in situations where somebody has a plan in the community that is feasible that they’re not going to accept and that’s OK,” the man says.
Foley then says that he hasn’t been informed of a plan for his care and that his rights as a patient are being violated.
“You have already violated my preferences…So what is the plan that you know of?” Foley asks the man.
“Roger, this is not my show,” the man replies. “I told you my piece of this was to talk to you about if you had interest in assisted dying.”
In a separate audio recording from January 2018, another man is heard asking Foley how he’s doing and whether he feels like he wants to harm himself.
Once you’ve become a ‘burden on society’, Socialism’s go-to solution is ending your life.
But the ‘compassionate left’ is pushing a one-payer health care model anyway.
Why would they care? They could never imagine a situation where THEY could be the one who’s an unwanted burden on the system.
Think this is a rare situation? The British system has gone even further when they told parents they CANNOT take their dying infant to a system that offers better prognosis. And the STATE used LAW ENFORCEMENT to prevent parents from seeking help elsewehere.
Get Doug Giles’ new book:
Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
One thing that increasingly unites men and women? We can both agree that Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds. Now there’s a shirt that says just that.
Conveniently available in Both Ladies…
AND Men’s versions.
Either Liberals just don’t get it, or they are sick in the head. Probably both. Think about it: They want to have all of the blessings that come with living in a capitalist society such as modern medicine and technology. But they believe in socialism, which stifles innovation and progress.
They want to be protected by the police and the military, but they attack and criticize the men and women who protect us. They call conservatives “racists,” but it’s their own identity politics that have created race problems in the first place. After all, Democrats were the party of slavery!
They attack hunters, but have no problem wearing leather shoes or owning cars with leather upholstery! And of course, they believe guns kill people. Not the people that pull the trigger.
Well, here’s a shirt that sums it perfectly. Liberalism is a… MENTAL DISORDER.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
