This can’t be true. How, and I meand HOW! can someone agreeto this? In which way this is less murder than a peaceful euthanasic death?

I live in the Uk and that story isn’t anywhere near as bad as it sounds. Is been seriously hammed up by the global media into something it quite simply isn’t.

It’s fairly atrocious if it’s true, but for US bees who don’t know it well, the Daily Mail is notoriously bad at fair and truthful reporting. It’s barely better than a downmarket tabloid really. I would bet there’s a hell of a lot more to the story than they’ve made out.

@Rouquine:  we are talking about the scenario which unfolds when people are terminally ill and a parent or next of kin says they do not want any medical intervention and for the person to die naturally.  The doctors respect the wishes but obviously sometimes prediction of terminal illness aren’t correct.  My dad had terminal cancer and they were way off in their estimation of how long he had left.  Anyway, when mistakes are made, it is understandably difficult to watch a person you otherwise said to be allowed to die naturally with out resusitation action, go through  hell And undoubtedly, changes need to be made to allow for more movement in this situation when a mistake has been made.  But all of this has come out of some isolated cases which have warranted further investigation.  It’s not like our hospitals are bloody conveyor beds to death.

 

i am not making a statement about the NHS or our health service, I’m just saying this story is massively exaggerated.

Euthanasia isn’t legal here either. Pretty sure it’s as shocking for you guys as it is for us, but then I’m never shocked at anything I read that credits the daily mail as its main souce. I think the US equivalent is the national enquirer?  It’d be a bit like writing a thesis on a historical subject and quoting Wikipedia.

@doorstopper:  thank you. My little toe has more credibility than the daily mail.  Please bees, check the sources on these stories.

@doorstopper:  the shorter version for anyone interested is that this is a bullshit story.
