NHS death panels confirmed

That stupid blithering idiot Sarah Palin apparently called this one right, and the 61 smartest people in the world (i.e. Obama + the 60 Senate Dems (I’ll include whoever takes Teddy’s place)) were wrong.

Drudge is highlighting this lovely story from across the pond.

Patients with terminal illnesses are being made to die prematurely under an NHS scheme to help end their lives, leading doctors warn today.

In a letter to The Daily Telegraph, a group of experts who care for the terminally ill claim that some patients are being wrongly judged as close to death.

Under NHS guidance introduced across England to help doctors and medical staff deal with dying patients, they can then have fluid and drugs withdrawn and many are put on continuous sedation until they pass away.

But this approach can also mask the signs that their condition is improving, the experts warn.
