No Way Out: Kansas Against Assisted Suicide

Culture war legislation wants to govern every aspect of the life and death of their residents . . . And while this may seem a nice way to defend the sanctity of life it also condemns a great many people to horrific pain, suffering, endless Kansas boredom and the possibility of a Presidential context betwixt Oprah Winfrey and Donald Trump. Take a look: Kansas lawmakers consider resolution condemning assisted suicide

Double talk, the only thing they care about is keeping their cash cow alive. (Being healthcare)

Doctors have been assisting death for quite a few years. They may call it easing the pain and making the patiernt confortable, but the fact is they dope them up, sometimes cut of feeding tubes, and then make sure staff understands to not be at all aggressive when it comes to life saving measures. This is usually based on the existence of a living will and feedback from family members, but lets not be fucking stupid. Helping folks make the big exit has been part of the care program for many years and frankly it should be given the alternatives.

They won't consider it because they know that too many Kansans would want to have their current Mein Gov For Life do it.

You do not understand end of life care at all, and should not talk about it.

Bob Dole came up with the idea of death panels. The Ozarks brought back deliverance.

Worked hospice for about six years, bozo.

Hospice is not mercy killing. Assisted suicide is illegal here. Advance directives are put in place by patients and families to preserve their quality of life.

Patients have the right to elect hospice if they have been diagnosed with a terminal illness. They have the right not to pursue treatment.

All of this is, of course, heavily regulated according to very, very strict rules handed down by CMS. Most families who've been helped by hospice are unbelievably grateful for the grace and compassion of their team.

Stick to what you know, chief. Whatever that is. At least don't venture ignorant opinions about medical issues.

Thanks a bunch!

:) Question all you like, you'll find I'm right. In fact, doing the shallowest research before posting might have served you well.

I don't know of anyone who works for nine bucks an hour in hospice care, or any kind of health care for that matter. You really have no clue what you're yapping about, and it shows.

Well then how much did you make cleaning those bed pans?

:) I had a job a bit higher up the chain than that. But here's yet another thing you don't understand: Even a housekeeper's job in hospice is honorable. Every job from bottom to top helps with the dignity of the dying.

Tell me, how much are you making being a total ass on a local blog? :)

So were you an RN or a Doctor? For someone who is an expert you sure aren't communicating very much.

Hi. Not 1:56, but the earlier commenter. I still work in healthcare so I don't always have time to brutally school dummies on the net. ;)

Look, it's real simple. Spare yourself the discomfort, and in the future talk only about what you know. At least stop spreading really dumb, ignorant stuff about important things.

Simple, eh? Good luck next tine you want to sound like you have a clue.
