I want to see the original letter. KATU has the story of Barbara Wagner who has cancer and is looking for health care. She requested a chemotherapy treatment the state considered not worthy for her. They suggested she contact a physician-aid-in-dying counselor – assisted suicide.Hat tip to Ed at Hot Air. You’re going to see more stories about what a government run health care system is going to be like during the rest of the summer. Every story is important. We do not want the federal government involved in health care any more than they already are! I’d prefer they get out of it entirely.
We knew it would come to this when Oregon insisted on passing its assisted-suicide laws. It doesn’t take much for assisted suicide to go from a humane option to a cost-saving device, especially when the state pays for the medical care. One patient in Oregon got a letter that made this all too clear, when in the same letter rejecting her request for life-extending chemotherapy, Oregon offered her “physician-aid-in-dying”. In other words, Oregon offered their customer a heapin’ helping of death.
