The Liverpool Care Pathway was designed as a protocol to help terminally ill patients die with the least amount of suffering. But Alex Schadenberg of the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition tells OneNewsNow.
“So what's happened is that people who are not dying have been put on the Liverpool Pathway,” he explains. “And of course with the Liverpool Pathway, it is going to be said, Well, this person is dying. So we will deny them any further medical treatment and even withdraw food and fluids. So people who were not dying were being dehydrated to death under the Liverpool Pathway.”
“The fact is they're going to get rid of that, and I don't know what they're going to come up with,” Schadenberg says. “What I can say though is that this euthanasia mentality has certainly polluted the water, and it's made it very difficult to have good ethical care.”He suggests that the policy that needs to be abandoned is euthanasia and doctor-assisted suicide.
