Liverpool care Pathway – A Moral Dilemna

These are frightening times.

Did they really mean to say that...?

Lady Warnock

Baroness Warnock has said that elderly people suffering from 
dementia are “wasting people’s lives” and “wasting the resources of the National Health Service” and should be allowed to die. These are the words of a well-respected commentator on medical ethics.

Lady Warnock’s comments were published in an interview with the magazine of the Church of Scotland, Life and Work, and have been condemned by dementia charities.

Jacques Attali
Did they really mean to say that...?

Jacques Attali, is a leading French intellectual and former President of the European Bank for reconstruction and development.

He has said, "As soon as he goes beyond 60-65 years of age man lives beyond his capacity to produce, and he costs society a lot of money...euthanasia will be one of the essential instruments of our future societies."

Surely, these are lines from the screenplays of Soylent Green and Logan's Run? Again, do we tread this path, take these careless steps and stumble blindly into the abyss?

And with the introduction of LCP, killing has become a ‘legal’ therapy!

These are dangerous and frightening times.
