What you can look forward to if the Democrats win.

Both Democrat candidates have spoken at length about wanting to implement Socialized medicine. The Democrats love to point to Canada as their model.

In Canada there is a Gentleman by the name of Samuel Golubchuk. He happens to be an Orthodox Jew. One of the tenets of his faith is that Jewish law expressly forbids any action intended to shorten life. Mr. Golubchuk is dying. His family, also Orthodox Jews understand that, but because of their faith, they have told the doctors that they do not wish for his feeding tube or ventilator to be removed. They further state that were their father able to express his desires, he too would not want them withheld for the same reason. Now, mind you, in Canada it is illegal to offend another's religion.

The doctor in charge of the ICU in which Mr. Golubchuk is hospitalized has stated however that the family's desires are irrelevant and that he intends to remove the ventilator and if that is insufficient to kill him, he will remove his feeding tube and starve him to death. If he shows any signs of pain or discomfort he will administer morphine.

With doctors like this, who needs murderers?

Kevorikan would be most welcome there, he'd work himself to death with the demand from the government!

I'm no longer surprised that family has no say, and that their religion would be so disrespected.

That happens here in Texas, too. I recall some hospital here in Houston that demanded one family to remove a woman from their care because she was in a coma and would never recover. The family played hell trying to find another facility that would take her in. I just cannot recall the outcome or which hospital it was.

What happened to the hippocratic oath?
