I understand that there are times when people want to refuse medical care, and "extraordinary means". There are times people may have to make hard choices for relatives on life support, or where further medical interventions would bring far more unnecessary pain and suffering where people decide not to go that route. For instance, I had a relative who refused chemo at an advanced age. There are medical things I have refused--once praying and basically being told by God, not to get or pursue a certain serious medical procedure. Since I am still kicking 9 years later that was a blessing from God. These things however are people's personal choices. They were not made by bean counters and those wanting to "save money".
One danger I see coming is "passive euthanasia", where to qualify for certain treatments, they will look at someone's age and other health problems and tell them they don't meet the standards to have it done. That is what all the warnings about Obama's would be "death panels" was all about.
My trust of the medical world is LOW, even if I have had good doctors and been saved by modern medicine before, I had an in-law die of being given a drug they were allergic to, and an in law who basically died of dehydration in the hospital, his daughter checked on him daily-they both lived out of state, but could only do so much. I have seen people put away into the nursing home, one denied rehab that could have given her a chance at a better life--they gave her a week or two and then cut it off and left her in her bed almost night and day. There are things going on out there that are scary. When people have feeding tubes, water, etc, removed there is horrible suffering no matter the excuses they put on top of it. I have seen people denied physical therapy, rehab, and more that would have helped them due to 'cost-cutting" measures. Many of these places are run "for-profit" which tells you how decisions are made. What is worse, is the clinical coldness that has come to dominate the medical world in general.
Matt 6: 24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
Think about with these euthanasia lovers, how their solution is to end everyone's lives as quickly as possible when we actually have the medical technology to alleviate pain. There is a problem here. This is all about MONEY. If you read these magazine articles, it's all about the money. No one has the opportunity to die at home anymore with loved ones, they are shipped off to scary, unfamiliar surroundings and there are plenty of new world order owned "writers" like this telling people to SPEED up the DYING process, or even in the extreme cases BEGIN it, supposedly to save MONEY.
Even that is based on lies. Where is all the CASH going? Why does it cost hundreds of bucks for a bandage? Why does a week in the hospital cost upwards of a $12,000 bucks? Ever think about the CUT all the mega-insurance companies are getting or how the system is set up for corruption. So while they tell you that your 80 something year old grandfather is the "burden" and the "problem", the wicked behind the scenes fill their money bags. The greed is astounding out there. One unknown fact very few doctors take Medicare, they refuse it because they aren't paid enough. Anyone with a disabled or elderly relative, figures out some of the facts out there fast. Ever wonder why we have so many foreign doctors now? Most Americans can't afford medical school anymore. Why is that? It is a closed system.
Trillions for wars overseas, and bank bail-outs but look how they go to the medical world FIRST here, and talk about not extending people's lives because of the "costs". Yes medicine can be messy, yes people may die despite the efforts, but there are those who live too. Would you rather error is made on the life side or the death side? I would go with the FORMER!
Who wants other people deciding if a life is "worthwhile" besides God? It is sick. I know someone who has severe health problems who was told by others, they would have chosen to die instead if they were in her shoes and this is not a person who is bedridden, they can walk, and see. Scary stuff, but people have been indoctrinated to the max. We are living in a world where only the healthy, wealthy and young, are being told that they "matter".
Even the people who fear being vegetables or stashed away into the nursing home and being helpless, this comes out of the wickedness of a system where the old and ill are stashed away, "out of sight and out of mind" and forgotten and ignored. People are told once they take ill, become disabled and non-"productive" that they are worthless. Unlike years ago where families were together and took care of their old and sick, with multiple members helping out, people know what happens today. Their fears are real but sadly now being used to advance the death agenda, so old people tell their children, "Let me die, I do not want to become a burden!". What is scarier is what will happen to those without children, who will be left at the whim of clinical social workers and so called "professionals" making those decisions. Anyone who has faced serious illness or helplessness, understands the fear that can loom simply from the thoughts of ending up in a nursing home and the horribleness and even abuse that could await. Remember my warnings about how fear is used to take people into wicked things?
2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
With modern medical science I think one needs to keep a clear mind and analyze many things, especially what is being done to the food, and all the toxins they are bombarding us with, but there is another agenda out there. The evil elite do want to reduce the population. Many people even in their middle age with serious health problems are asked to sign "do not resuscitate orders". This is what happens. They are indoctrinating people now to accept these things and have for many years. Life is not valued. They promote death at every turn.
You know things are scary when MONEY is always put above LIFE, the message is to DIE instead of cost people or your family money. Hey that is what has fueled the MILLIONS of abortions in this country. Young women being told not to "ruin their lives" and being told to have their babies done away with to save their "future careers" and "socio-economic" lives. CASH is held above LIFE in this country and has been for decades. Now that the Baby Boom population is aging, the drumbeats to SAVE MONEY have already started. It is the same thing but this time instead of just killing unborn babies and rejecting their right to life, they are trying to change the attitudes towards the sick, the old and elderly. Many warned this would happen, in a culture where they do not care about killing unborn life, why wouldn't they step it up a few notches?
This world, does disvalue life. Lest you think morality and common sense is going to prevail, don't be naive'. I am going to tell you about a personal experience here. I went to a local library book club where they had assigned this book for the monthly discussion, to tell the folks, I believed the book above was total evil. I almost quit reading it, but decided to proceed and go and tell them what I thought. Soon I may be doing an article on FICTION books and how so many program for anti-Christian thought. I am at the point where I am reading 90% nonfiction, tired of being bombarded with everything from subtle New Age theology to worldviews that make me want to puke.
Here is the book, it was called "The Unit". This book was translated from Swedish, and was about a society, where everyone over 50 and childless or older with grown children out of the house, were considered "dispensable" and used for medical experiments and organ donations. With some of the organ donations, they had corneas, ear bones, kidneys taken, but they also had ones that ended their lives--livers and hearts. In other words they were used as living organ banks for the rest of the "indispensable" population. The people in the book accepted this system, and their deaths. They were treated "well" on a surface level, given nice apartments, food and leisure, while the death clock wound itself down. In the book, two of them fall in love, and one lady gets pregnant, but they do away with her male lover, taking his liver, and she has the baby transplanted to another womb--remember this is an imagined future, and while one kind worker, gives her the means to escape, she refuses and stays to meet her deadly end. I didn't want to read this book, it was nauseating, but felt impelled to challenge folks on it and told them bluntly, this book is evil and why. I said it to them straight. There was another elderly Christian in the audience, who shared my sentiments, but what was scary, was the people kept talking about how medical care was growing more expensive, and what was going to be done with all the old and disabled people out there? "We do not want to be burdens ourselves", they said. It was one of those moments of feeling aggrieved around the unbelieving world.
They accepted that the book was dystopian and protrayed a horrible future, but I kept thinking don't they realize how close things are getting now? Many said, "The book made us think" when I thought to myself the book taught passive acceptance of pure unadulterated evil. The heroine after all accepted her fate. Life has become cheap in this world, even for a book of no hope like this to be written. Where it's all about cost measures, and who gets what. This book was just more Logan's Run nonsense! Remember that movie where they sent everyone off to die by age 30 and go to Carousel, another satanic brainwashing film as early as the 1970s? I saw this movie several times when young, it is interesting to see the implicit NWO influences and symbols right in it. The "culling the population" stuff has existed for decades.
The Nazi's had their "life unworthy of life" program, many forget about this when they did away with sick infants, the developmentally disabled, the sick and old. There were protests that ended this but sadly did not end the Holocaust of later. There the luciferian beancounters decided who lived or died too.
"The Nazi euthanasia program quickly expanded to include older disabled children and adults. Hitler's decree of October, 1939, typed on his personal stationery and back dated to Sept. 1, enlarged "the authority of certain physicians to be designated by name in such manner that persons who, according to human judgment, are incurable can, upon a most careful diagnosis of their condition of sickness, be accorded a mercy death."Are we headed to those times now? Except they won't be so direct about it. They will use "lack of availability" and more back door cost cutting measures. Actually some of this stuff has already started. What will happen with the drug shortages that have started now?
Don't forget Jack Kevorkian, that man's satanic darkened heart showed up in his art and the fact that TODAY in places like Oregon and the Netherlands, one can call for medicine to kill one's self with if they are "ill" enough. The so called "assisted suicide" evil. There on the surface, they claim to this is the person's "personal choice". But you wonder when the "choice" to die becomes the "duty to die", especially among those who fear the burdgeoning medical costs to their families. In the Netherlands they have made things "convienient" for their mostly godless duped masses, with their mobile euthanasia units where they will send a van right to your house to kill you.
This is serious business, everyone reading this article one day will be facing death and old age. Many will be facing incapcitation and needing the care of others. It is scary what is happening in this society and the coldness that abounds.
Matt 24: 12And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
Here is more information on how they are bombarding people with their euthnasia and death messages in the media.
I do not agree with everything here, this is NOT a Christian video--[some mild language warning], but he deals with many of basics. I do agree with some of his criticisms of the medial world. The corruptions are deep and not all the treatments are the best. There are things going in the medical world that replicate things exposed on this blog regarding the religious world. Think the same degree of corruption, lies and more. He is right about the EVIL implicit in this. He is right about how other cultures treat their elderly better. America should be ashamed of itself.
Here is the cover of the recent Time magazine:
This one is from 2009, they didn't hold back from a direct sick title.
When I saw this one, I almost couldn't believe it, but it is real:
The Case for Killing Granny
TIME Magazine pushes death agenda: Remove feeding tubes from the dying elderly (and get a cash bonus!)
The Elite Are Attempting To Convince Us That Killing Off Our Sick Grandparents Is Cool And Trendy
What should be done with elderly Americans when they become very seriously ill? Should we try to save their lives or should we just let them die? Unfortunately, there is a growing consensus among the "intellectual elite" that most elderly people are not going to have a high enough "quality of life" to justify the expense of costly life saving procedures. This philosophy is now being promoted very heavily through mainstream news outlets, in our television shows and in big Hollywood movies. The elite are attempting to convince us that killing off our sick grandparents is cool and trendy. We are being told that "pulling the plug" on grandma and grandpa is compassionate (because it will end their suffering), that it is good for the environment and that it is even good for the economy. We are being told that denying life saving treatments to old people will dramatically reduce health care costs and make the system better for all of us. We are being told that it is not "efficient" for health insurance companies to shell out $100,000 for an operation that may extend the life of an elderly person by 6 months. But the truth is that all of this is part of a larger agenda that the elite are attempting to advance. As I have written about previously, the elite love death, and they truly believe that reducing the population is good for society and good for the planet. Sadly, population control propaganda has reached a fever pitch in recent months.
Time Magazine has just come out with a very shocking cover story entitled "How To Die". The article goes on and on about how wonderful and compassionate it is to remove life saving treatment from sick relatives.
This is all the outcome of a world going further into evil, WAXING cold.
Matt 25:40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
