DISGUSTING: Oregon Senate Committee Passes Bill Allowing Starving Mentally Ill Patients to Death
A bill was passed in Oregon that will now allow for the killing of mentally ill patients or those will dementia to starve to death or dehydrate themselves to death.
The bill was passed by a slim margin split right on the political party line.
I bet you’ll never guess which party is in favor of killing these elderly and mentally ill citizens.
According to Life News,
Senate Bill 494 is little more than the state colluding with the healthcare industry to save money on the backs of mentally ill and dementia patients. This bill would remove current safeguards in Oregon’s advance directive statute that protect conscious patients’ access to ordinary food and water when they no longer have the ability to make decisions about their own care.
“It’s appalling what the Senate Rules Committee just voted to do,” said Gayle Atteberry, Oregon Right to Life executive director. “This bill, written in a deceiving manner, has as its goal to save money at the expense of starving and dehydrating dementia and mentally ill patients to death.”
“Oregon law currently has strong safeguards to protect patients who are no longer able to make decisions for themselves,” said Atteberry. “Nursing homes and other organizations dedicated to protecting vulnerable patients work hard to make sure patients receive the food and water they need. Senate Bill 494, pushed hard by the insurance lobby, would take patient care a step backwards and decimate patient rights.”
“Oregon Right to Life is committed to fighting this terrible legislation every step of the way,” said Atteberry. “We have already seen the outrage of countless Oregonians that the Legislature would consider putting them in danger. We expect the grassroots response to only increase.”
Of course, it’s the Democrats. It’s ALWAYS the Democrats. Anytime you hear of something so horrible as this, you can bet money that there are some “progressives” behind it.
Here’s a question I’d like to pose; how is a party labeled progressive, yet they are trying to literally destroy our society?
They favor killing the elderly, killing the unborn, and promoting homosexual lifestyles (which can’t produce babies). Left up to them, they would literally end the human race.
