Unwanted, unappreciated Poor Medical Care

Doctor-assisted suicide could save Canada, the Provinces, Hospitals  tens of millions of dollars annually by avoiding costly “end-of-life” care, or continually medical services apparently. It’s wrong to suggest an assisted death to someone just because they supposedly are close to a natural death.

An Ontario study found the average person generates $14,000 in health-care costs during the last 30 days of his or her life, often receiving intensive treatment is more costly than the Doctor-assisted suicide.

Canada’s new Doctor-assisted suicide laws  are unconstitutional and should be struck down because they do not require doctors “to even try to help relieve intolerable suffering” before offering to kill a terminally ill patient.  Canada’s medically assisted dying policies are “dangerous as they can be used to facilitate the humiliation and abuse of persons with disabilities in times of desperation without any steps being taken by medical staff or the defendants to help these vulnerable disabled patients relieve their suffering or assist such patients with life” Offering death without first trying to provide full adequate medical care is immoral. To suggest death is “ethically questionable,” and it should only come up on patient request. Many persons, physicians with moral and religious objections to assisted dying have already told the provincial governments they don’t want it, because they see it as someone falsely helping the  patients  to end their live.  End to the practice  of doctors referring  patients to seek  assisted death from a physician who will help to do so.

Critics have long feared that, once assisted dying was legalized, its legal borders would creep ever wider to include children and the mentally ill, and that hastening death would become the knee-jerk solution to the many intractable problems of end of life care. The federal government has no jurisdiction over health care, as it is a provincial matter solely.   Neither patients nor physicians should consider costs when making the very personal decision to a patients, well being, health care, emergency department visits, dialysis, medical tests, and hospital admissions.

THE IRONY IS MANY PATIENTS MAKE RELATED VISITS, TO THE DOCTORS, HOSPITALS, BECAUSE MANY CLEARLY CHARGE CARD HAPPY INCOMPETENT DOCTORS FAILED TO SEE AND DEAL WITH THE NEEDED MEDICAL TREATMENT. OR HAD MISDIAGNOSED THE SICKNESS ORIGINALLY.

After months, repeated visits  to the  hospitals  3  Doctors, One from McGill and two from Chum offered me  assisted death. A simple choice between medical help or medically assisted suicide, rather than simply working with me  to deal with my sicknesses  in a respectful patient-centred manner . I refused the death sentences and  I am well and healthy these days. And rather demanded they do the Job they were paid for Fully.  Ironically many other doctors and neighbours say that I look well and healthy.
