CanuckCare� Takes a Shot

So it seems that Britain's Much Vaunted National Health Service� has some competition in the race to the bottom. From our friend The Political Hat:

"Canadian Hospital Pushes Euthanasia on Disabled Patient"

As we've oft-noted, killing off pesky, expensive patients is a sure-fire way to rein in out-of-control health care costs.

(And by the way: have we noticed yet that even nationalized schemes have been unable to keep health care costs in line? Just wondering)

And it seems to be becoming a pretty routine, if final, "solution:"

"Foley tells the man that he�s �always thinking I want to end my life� because of the way he�s being treated at the hospital and because his requests for self-directed care have been denied."

This is far form Dr K's assisted suicide apparatus: no matter what one thinks of that process, at least it was (ostensibly) voluntary. This is full-blown actively pushing for the patient to pull his own plug not for his own betterment, but for the savings to the health "care" system.

Which begs the question: what, they ran out of ice floes?
