The Liverpool Pathway to death: how the NHS is dressing up palpable evil as kindness
The Rev Dr Peter Mullen is a priest of the Church of England and former Rector of St Michael, Cornhill and St Sepulchre-without-Newgate in the City of London. He has written for many publications including the Wall Street Journal reports in the Daily Telegraph:
We ought to ask Jenny Agutter and Michael York to come back and give us a reissue of Logan’s Run, the futuristic film in which people are put to death upon reaching the grand old age of thirty. I have news for you, folks: that future is with us now in the form of the so called “Liverpool Pathway” to death. They have a song about it in Liverpool, don’t they? And all the doctors, nurses and euthanasia fans gather round the bed of sick patients and croon nasally, “You’ll never walk again…”
I would advise the victims of this malevolent practice to protest, to Twist and Shout. Or, if they haven’t the energy for that, then sing:
Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away;Now it looks as if they’re here to stay;Oh I believe in yesterday.
When you’re running out of tomorrows, yesterday is all you’ve got left.
85 per cent of NHS Trusts have taken advantage of this scheme to rid the country of people judged to be past their sell-by date. This “treatment” – really ill-treatment – can involve depriving the patient of water. Don’t think for a minute that hospitals do this out of the kindness of their corporate heart. No, they have received grants up to £12 million to pay for this mercy killing. Except that it’s not really mercy killing. “Euthanasia” is a Greek word meaning “easy death.” But, I’m informed, death by dehydration is not usually a particularly enjoyable way to shuffle off this mortal coil.
