FULL TITLE: Terminally sick children have been secretly given deadly overdoses by British doctors in illegal mercy killings, claims retired GP

British doctors have secretly killed terminally sick children by giving them 'huge' overdoses of painkillers, it was claimed yesterday.

Hours after Belgium became the first country in the world to allow the euthanasia of children, a retired GP suggested it was already happening, informally, in Britain.

Dr Michael Irwin told an LBC Radio debate: 'It has happened in this country, very quietly. I know of one or two children over the last few years.'

They are taking Obama’s advice to heart. Sometimes you just gotta take the pill, Obama fought for the right to allow living babies to die, and children are mere punishments.

Just another form of abortion! Giving a sick kid all the pain medication he/she could possibly need is great...it's absolutely the right thing to do.But killing them? How do you sleep at night after having killed a kid?

“How do you sleep at night after having killed a kid? “

The Nazis who ran the death camps used a lot, and I mean a lot of Vodka.

And they are planning to do it in Canada also:

Unable to guarantee medical care, the Quebec government turns to euthanasia

Just so. Euthanasia is much cheaper. And much less trouble.

The socialist dream is of an enormous, public-union medical force, all working for the government, with little or nothing to do but sit around and talk, occasionally getting up to euthanize their patients—and vote for their bosses.

Rather well developed for “Youth”.

That quite depends on the definition — in the biblical stories when you see "youth" ["young men"/"little children" in the KJV] it is often referring to those of military-serving age (about 18-45). Which is nicely illustrated in the story of Elisha cursing the "little children" whereby they were mauled by bears. (Link to analysis of the phrase used.)

Euthanasia = Good
Abortion = Good
Putting to death a cop killer = Bad

There is no hope for society.

Yes, and soon to follow in short order: eugenics, and relocations to specialized facilities for certain "undesirables."
I do hope our Brit cousins get nice window seats on the transports...

There is a regular death cult out there in the real world of 2014 A.D. Its followers are “chomping at the bit” to be able to kill at will. The day is not far off when one will go for a routine doctor visit and simply not come back. It will be explained to the grieving relatives that the deceased suddenly requested the doctor to kill him and of course the doctor had to comply due to the ‘obvious suffering’ exhibited by the deceased.

The Nazis who ran the death camps used a lot, and I mean a lot of Vodka.

SS troops who functioned as death squads often struggled for years, with the guilt of what they had done. I expect many of them committed suicide because of it.

The T4 program in Nazi Germany killed the feeble and “breadeaters” who don’t contribute.
Sounds like the Brits learned from the enemy

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I think it’s time we end our special relationship with Britain before this cultural influence starts leaking over into the US, infecting the US mainstream. Britain did after invent the “pregnancy pact” and it leaked over here into Massachusetts and quite a few other places. I think it’s time we set Britain aside as a ‘special’ ally and find better friends.

“I expect many of them committed suicide because of it.”

Thus ensuring them a place in Hell twice over. Lucifer must have been tickled pink that he could not just convince them to do evil, but also do the final act of ultimate self destruction to themselves.

Tim for us to change things, remove ourselves from a ‘special friendship’ with Britain before this does leak over.

Oh the irony; so many dead so Brits would be spared this, but go figure, all for nothing as now proven.

I would expect that what the Dr is talking about is giving enough medication to keep the child comfortable which is often a small degree of tolerance with the amount that is lethal.

Parents will often want their dying child kept comfortable and pain free, at a risk that the child might die a day or two early.

Personally I do not want my children to suffer from the effects of a terminal dying. I would rather they be kept pain free, even if it compromises their respirations in the long run.

Yes, and US hospitals have been doing the exact same thing since the day morphine was invented.

absolutely. This is a family and provider decision. Certainly would not want to see the kind of legislation that happened in Brussels.

I shudder to think where we with our superior methods of implementation would take this method of post birth abortion!

I shudder to think of it at all.

Exactly; we need to get out of this delusion that WASP culture is somehow superior.

Another nothing news story. This kind of thing has been going on for decades, and everyone in the medical profession knows it.

Last year it was reported that hundreds or maybe more babies were purposely blinded by the US for medical experiments. It was a one day article and got little attention.
