    Human life suddenly became less valuable when a "constitutional right" to abortion was created by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1973. Part of the worry from critics was that that very standard would be applied to seniors, too. In Colorado. which was a leader in the race to turn abortion into a national industry, the move to get rid of seniors also surged at that time. In fact, it was Colorado's governor, Dick Lamm, who shortly later proclaimed to senior citizens, "We've got a duty to die and get out of the way…" Now a report from The DCPatriot is...
  • Are Canadians being driven to assisted suicide by poverty or healthcare crisis? Critics argue laws are being misused to punish the poor but experts say cases represent country’s failure to care for its most vulnerable citizens

    After pleading unsuccessfully for affordable housing to help ease her chronic health condition, a Canadian woman ended her life in February under the country’s assisted-suicide laws. Another woman, suffering from the same condition and also living on disability payments, has nearly reached final approval to end her life. The two high-profile cases have prompted disbelief and outrage, and shone a light on Canada’s right-to-die laws, which critics argue are being misused to punish the poor and infirm. In late April, the Spectator ran a story with the provocative headline: Why is Canada euthanising the poor? But medical and legal experts...
  • Biden’s Ambassador to the Vatican Voted for Planned Parenthood and Gay Marriage as a Senator

    President Biden’s new ambassador to the Holy See voted in favor of former President Obama’s legislative agenda supporting Planned Parenthood and gay marriage when he was a senator, despite previously speaking out against such measures. Joe Donnelly, who served as a Democratic senator from Indiana from 2013 to 2019, presented his credentials to Pope Francis at the apostolic palace in Vatican City on April 11. “I look forward to deepening our ties with the Holy See. My family and I are proud to be members of the Catholic faith,” Donnelly said in a video. “From my childhood, through my college...

    America had a hearty laugh mixed with mild horror this week when it learned that the Biden Administration is planning to distribute free crack pipes to drug addicts for the sake of “racial equity.” The $30 million grant program, which closed applications Monday and will begin in May, will provide funds to nonprofits and local governments to help make drug use safer for addicts. Included in the grant … are funds for “smoking kits/supplies.” A spokesman for the agency told the Washington Free Beacon that these kits will provide pipes for users to smoke crack cocaine, crystal methamphetamine, and “any...
  • This Explains a Lot: Creepy Dr. Zeke Emanuel, the God-Father of Death Panels, Was Dr. Fauci’s Director of Dept. of Bioethics, the “Ethical” Oversight Board at NIH

    Now it makes sense.Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel is the brother of Rahm Emanuel and is credited with being the brain behind medical death panels.The New York Post in 2009 reported on Dr. Emanuel’s health care priorities.Emanuel believes that “communitarianism” should guide decisions on who gets care. He says medical care should be reserved for the non-disabled, not given to those “who are irreversibly prevented from being or becoming participating citizens . . . An obvious example is not guaranteeing health services to patients with dementia.” (Hastings Center Report, Nov.-Dec. ’96).This weekend a Gateway Pundit reader sent us this interesting tidbit from...

    Dr. Ron Elfenbein called the pause in some antibody treatments the 'height of bureaucratic arrogance'.. A doctor in Maryland said he had to cancel potentially life-saving monoclonal antibody infusions for about 250 people over the last week after the federal government stopped distributing treatments made by Regeneron and Eli Lilly because they aren't effective against omicron, even though the delta variant, which the drugs are effective at treating, was still dominant at the time. The Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response halted the allocation of those two antibody treatments last Thursday amid the rise of omicron, which...

Writing in the Journal of Paediatrics and Child Health, they said medics should wield their 'trusted' positions in society to get people to take care of the planet. Academics wrote that health professionals could be 'effective messengers' and help encourage more people to fight climate change.

    The employment landscape is constantly shifting. While agricultural jobs played a big role in the 19th century, Visual Capitalist's Jenna Ross points out that a large portion of U.S. jobs today are in administration, sales, or transportation. So how can job seekers identify the fastest growing jobs of the future?The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) projects there will be 11.9 million new jobs created from 2020 to 2030, an overall growth rate of 7.7%. However, some jobs have a growth rate that far exceeds this level. In this graphic, we use BLS data to show the fastest growing jobs—and...

    PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The City Council in Portland, Oregon, has scrapped a plan to boycott Texas businesses because of a new law that prohibits most abortions there, deciding Wednesday to instead set aside $200,000 to fund reproductive care.... The new plan to fund reproductive services passed 4-1 on Wednesday. Commissioner Mingus Mapps cast the only ‘no’ vote, saying he was “genuinely mystified” by what the City Council was trying to accomplish by allocating the $200,000 to fund reproductive care....

    A team from the University of Ottawa, in Ontario, Canada, says its Risk Evaluation for Support: Predictions for Elder-Life in the Community Tool (RESPECT) can accurately project death within six months. Researchers based the tool on data from more than 491,000 elderly people who received home care between 2007 and 2013. The team says its tool is undergoing a pilot study in community settings in Ontario and hopes that physicians and home care staff use the calculator to help them understand the care their patients may need. Researchers say the tool focuses on older adults who use or need home...

    The physicians' plan would single out Black and 'Latinx' patients in 'fight for racial justice in medicine.'Critical Race Theory influenced the physicians' support for 'medical restitution' and 'federal reparations.'Harvard Medical School instructors Bram Wispelwey and Michelle Morse argue in a Boston Review article that race should be used as a determining factor in how heart failure patients are treated. They write that the necessary "proactively antiracist agenda for medicine" should be direct, and the solution they propose could reach patients exactly at the point of care: "a preferential admission option for Black and Latinx heart failure patients to our specialty...

    ALBANY, NY—Governor Andrew Cuomo is disappointed after census data revealed his state had lost thousands of citizens, causing New York to lose a seat in the House of Representatives. "Yeah, I guess I shouldn't have murdered 15,000 elderly residents in nursing homes by forcing them to admit COVID patients," said the governor in between bites of his spicy meatball sub. "Maybe, in hindsight, I could have done better." "Or at least, maybe if I could have gotten 89 more of those old people to fill out a census form before dying I could have prevented this." Cuomo then finished his...

    President Joe Biden’s proposed infrastructure legislation has the political class seemingly locked in a debate about what “infrastructure” means. Biden and Democratic leaders—backed by a majority of the U.S. population—believe that “infrastructure” is more than just roads and bridges and encompasses all the structures that help modern society function. Their new bill reflects that understanding, including improvements to water pipes and the electrical grid, universal broadband access, charging stations for electric vehicles, physical upgrades to schools and universities, and—perhaps most innovatively—home care for the elderly and disabled, support for families with children, and expanded access to health care. Republican elected...

    Progressives are becoming more enthusiastic about using race to allocate medical resources. Two years ago, we learned the story of Dr. Lara Kollab. During 2011–2013, while an undergraduate at John Carroll University, she tweeted many antisemitic comments, including: “I'll purposely give all the yahood [Jews] the wrong meds,” and “People who support Israel should have their immune cells killed so they can see how it feels to not be able to defend yourself from foreign invaders.” SNIP Recently, ten years after Dr. Kollab's undergraduate antisemitic tweets, Drs.

    A woman in her early 30s, who gave birth to a son a month ago and has Covid-19, should be allowed to die against her family's wishes, a judge has decided. Mr Justice Hayden ruled that doctors can lawfully stop providing life-support treatment to the woman, who has an underlying health condition and is in an induced coma. A specialist told him that everything had been tried and the woman's chances of recovery were 'zero'. The judge considered the case at an urgent virtual hearing in the Court of Protection, where issues relating to people who lack the mental capacity...
