Typically, societies don’t commit suicide, at least not intentionally. Europe has tired of genocide (two world wars, Nazism, Stalinism, centuries of nationalist and ethnic strife, millennia of persecution of Jews), moved past suicide (plunging birth rates, creeping Eurabianism), and gone straight to kindercide:
A Judiciary Committee has rejected calls for extra hearings before sending Belgium’s Child Euthanasia Bill for a final parliamentary vote. The decision clears the way for it to be passed to the lower house for consideration and a vote sometime before May…
Unlike the Netherlands which allows euthanasia for children over 12, Belgium is set to become the first nation in the world to lift all age restrictions.
Hey kids, wait your turn (to die):
Thousands of patients are being denied potentially life-saving drugs even after they have been approved for NHS use, according to a study.
It reveals huge disparities in the numbers of patients given access to new drugs, with some areas prescribing them up to 29 times as much as others.
The figures come from a report looking at the use of drugs approved by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (Nice), the NHS rationing body.
Nice has been strongly criticised for unfairly blocking drugs it deems poor value for money, even when it is the last hope for cancer sufferers.
But latest figures for 2012 show that even when it approves drugs as cost-effective, and issues positive guidance to the NHS, patients are often failing to get them.
Stephen Whitehead, chief executive of the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry, said: ‘The report is a stark reminder that where you live in England still has an impact on your access to new NICE-approved medicines, which clearly needs to be addressed urgently by the NHS.’
Don’t feel so superior, America. The only difference between Britain’s death panels and yours is their user-friendly name (NICE). All the rest is coming soon enough. The Left will see to that (and to you too).
PS: Aggie and I live in the protective liberal shadow of Massachusetts. We’ll get all the drugs we ever need, thank you very much. As long as we keep our noses clean, that is. The rest of youse can curl up in the fetal position and die.
