The Earth Shattering Shift in Medical Ethics

The New Bioethics

Profound respect for the sanctity oflife has always been the core ethical principle of medicine, but that is changing. Today, sadly, the truth that every human life has equal worth is rejected by utilitarian-minded bioethicists. The new bioethics divides human beings into two categories: the “wanted” and the “unwanted.” Like their brothers and sisters who are aborted at the beginning of their lives, the chronically or terminally ill, disabled, and elderly are in danger of being killed simply because it is inconvenient and/or costly to care for them.

Palliative medications designed to relieve suffering are being misapplied in the hospice care setting as a tool in this new bioethics to make “unwanted” people die.

When hospice care is provided by healthcare professionals who truly respect life, it is a blessing. However, in practice, hospice is often not as advertised.

Stealth Euthanasia

Hospice care, whether provided in a patient’s home or a facility, is the “ideal” setting for the misuse of palliative medicines to secretly eliminate the “unwanted.”

“Stealth euthanasia” means the intentional hastening of a patient’s death while pretending to provide appropriate treatment. A typical report that we receive from grieving family members is that their loved one, who had been alert and was not complaining of pain, was administered increasingly frequent and larger doses of pain medications and sedatives to the point where they were sleeping all the time and could not eat or drink. Some reported that patients were also denied their usual medications to control blood pressure, diabetes, etc.

In September of 2000, the World Federation of Right to Die Societies (an association of organizations which promote euthanasia) issued an ominous declaration, stating in part:

We wish to draw public attention to the practice of “terminal sedation” or “slow euthanasia” which is performed extensively today… A physician may lawfully administer increasing dosages of regular analgesic and sedating drugs that can hasten someone’s death as long as the declared intention is to ease pain and suffering… Compassionate physicians, without publicly declaring the true intention of their actions, often speed up the dying process in this way.

Stay alert!

Doctors (and nurses) who intentionally kill selected patients represent an earth-shattering shift in medical ethics. Thankfully, there are still many members of the medical profession who embrace the sanctity of life ethic. The difficulty lies in discerning who can be trusted never to kill. When a loved one is referred to hospice or palliative care, be wary and stay alert!

Back Income of each of Planned Parenthood’s 50 Affiliates

As of January 2020, Planned Parenthood has 50 affiliates across the United States. Each affiliate is a separate 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Each affiliate reports its income to the federal government on a Federal Form 990. Listed below is the annual income of each affiliate based on that data. (NOTE: Five affiliates in New York State merged into a single organization in January. The dollar figure given for Planned Parenthood of Greater New York is an estimate based on the separate incomes of the five affiliates).

Affiliate Name Annual income
(millions)
Planned Parenthood Mar Monte $103.9
Planned Parenthood Greater New York $98.0
Planned Parenthood Los Angeles $78.6
Planned Parenthood Pacific South West $73.9
Planned Parenthood Orange and San Bernardino Counties $69.8
Planned Parenthood North Central States (Heartland + MN,ND,SD) $68.0
Planned Parenthood Great Northwest & Hawaiian Islands $62.1
Planned Parenthood Northern California $58.7
Planned Parenthood Illinois $55.4
Planned Parenthood Rocky Mountains $48.6
Planned Parenthood of South, East and North Florida & Treasure    Coast $45.0
Planned Parenthood Southern New England $44.8
Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region and Southwest Missouri $38.2
Planned Parenthood South Atlantic $36.9
Planned Parenthood Columbia Willamette $35.5
Planned Parenthood Greater Texas (including surgical) $35.1
Planned Parenthood Wisconsin $33.4
Planned Parenthood Northern, Central, Southern New Jersey $31.6
Planned Parenthood League Massachusetts $31.6
Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast $28.3
Planned Parenthood Northern New England $25.2

Planned Parenthood Michigan $23.6
Planned Parenthood Southwest Central Florida $23.0
Planned Parenthood Pasadena & San Gabriel Valley $20.9
Planned Parenthood Southeastern Pennsylvania $20.1
Planned Parenthood Maryland $19.5
Planned Parenthood Greater Washington & North Idaho $19.3
Planned Parenthood California Central Coast $19.1
Planned Parenthood Central Western New York $18.9
Planned Parenthood Great Plains $17.5
Planned Parenthood Indiana & Kentucky $17.0
Planned Parenthood Arizona $15.4
Planned Parenthood Metropolitan Washington, DC $15.1
Planned Parenthood Southwestern Oregon $15.1
Planned Parenthood of Tennessee and North Mississippi $13.8
Planned Parenthood Association of Utah $13.6
Planned Parenthood Southwest Ohio Region $10.4
Virginia League Planned Parenthood $10.2
Planned Parenthood Keystone $9.9
Mount Baker Planned Parenthood $9.5
Planned Parenthood Metropolitan New Jersey $9.2
Planned Parenthood Western Pennsylvania $8.5
Upper Hudson Planned Parenthood $8.4
Planned Parenthood Montana $8.3
Planned Parenthood Southeast $8.3
Planned Parenthood South Texas $6.6
Planned Parenthood North Country New York $5.9
Planned Parenthood Delaware $5.1

These 50 affiliates generate a combined income of over $1.5 billion. Planned Parenthood has been aggressively encouraging affiliates to merge for the last several decades. We believe that Planned Parenthood still wants to reduce the number of affiliates down to, at most, 40. As Planned Parenthood closes clinics and combines affiliates, there will be more and more members of Congress who have no Planned Parenthood operations in their district and/or state. As that happens, PP’s loss of Congressional support will help us close down the organization for good.

PUBLIC HEALTH FOR THE PEOPLE

PUBLIC HEALTH FOR THE PEOPLE:
Flattening the Coronavirus Curve

Camille Giglio

March 18, 2020, Walnut Creek, Ca During a recent tv news appearance President Trump, in discussing the statistics of the Coronavirus and medicine’s ability to serve the quickly expanding need for care, made a very brief reference to how they would meet the demand for care and, while doing that also ”flatten the curve.” Since then it would seem that it has become okay for the media to use that phrase also.

This is a phrase familiar to people in the epidemiological field of medicine, i.e. related to epidemics or surges in social unrest.. With all the news continually bombarding us from the media about this virus and its destructive nature, one might say, well, a statistical curve is not at all important.

Wrong.

This Coronavirus statistical curve is very much what this whole new health care field is all about.. The reference in this instance is for medical and statistical events; for politicians, such as Bernie Sanders. And company, it translates into “Health Care for All.” I’ not trying to suggest that this epidemic was planned as an exercise in controlling groups of people, not at all, but it could be an opportunity for certain agendas, such as population control, to be initiated.

I would invite everyone to research this phrase, I have included a small portion of an article here describing it’s meaning, but it is important enough that all should become familiar with this curve and its purpose..

Julie Fischer, professor of global medicine at Georgetown University explained it’s meaning on a recent C-Span program. “It is a way to slow down the new cases of a fast growing contagious illness making it appear (my emphasis) that it can [be] safely and efficiently meet the needs of the community’s residents who contract the illness.

Ms Fischer also said: It does not mean that fewer cases will occur. It just means that those cases will be spread out over a longer period of time allowing hospitals and clinics to meet those needs.

I would add that it makes it diverts blame from bureaucratic entities and gives the appearance of efficiency.

Many media outlets have attempted to critically point fingers at President Trump as though it is all his fault that this illness has caused such a upheaval in our lives. As I recall, in hearing President trump make this reference it was more like: “Ah, yes, flattening the curve.” Quite possibly Trump was attempting to quietly call the citizen’s attention to the fact that some information is being held back from the public.

I first learned about the Curve when I read a small book authored in 2017, by Dr. Michel Accad, a San Francisco Bay Area, UCSF practicing Cardiologist,. (see the About The Author below) His book entitled Moving Mountains: A Socratic Challenge to the Theory and Practice of Population Medicine.

He used the Socratic method of interviewing Geoffrey Rose, the person who is recognized as one of the people highly influential in public health circles, for discovering and or developing the epidemiological curve as a tool to change and rearrange public statistics to fit the desired goal. (That’s my definition.)

The idea is to take data such as one sees in that curve below and change the outcome by the way they change the data gathered or statistics. For instance, in attempting to find all the people to test for Coronavirus they started (so I read), by testing everyone who had a temperature of 98.6 which could include most everyone. They then said, wait, let’s start by testing everyone with a temperature of 101.1. Well, that got rid of a lot of potential virus patients and began to create a slightly flattened curve making it seem like the government or whomever had a handle on what was happening. This is just a example.

The internet is full of info on this subject.

In the book Dr. Accad (Socrates) has a dialogue with Rose about re-arranging the statistics on population to make it appear that the government is well capable of greatly flattening the curve of problems with certain ethnic groups of people.

Basically the curve, or problem is readily solved by preventive medicine. i.e. preventing or reducing births to certain groups, also birth control, education programs, etc. One doesn’t really solve anything, one just reduces the consequences by reducing the population.



Geoffrey Rose’s prevention theory

“Sick individuals and sick populations” is a paper written by Geoffrey Rose in 1985. It was published in the International Journal of Epidemiology and is one of the most influential public health papers ever written.

He describes and compares the ‘high-risk’ and ‘population’ strategies for prevention of disease. I think most readers will be able to access the original paper here, but if you cannot access it, this Wikipedia article gives you the basic idea.

The main idea is that the largest number of cases of ill health happen not in those at high risk, but in those who have just some risk, simply because there are more of them. See below for a more detailed summary.

The distribution of risk in a population often follows a bell curve (see figure), so if you are able to shift the whole curve to the left (lower risk in red), then everybody has a lower risk and you will get a fffewer number of cases.

Diagram of Geoffrey Rose’s theory

The high risk approach

The ‘high-risk’ approach to prevention is where medical professionals identify people with a condition (e.g. high blood pressure) and prescribe medication to prevent it developing into heart disease, or other diseases high blood pressure might be a risk factor for.

The advantages are that people are likely to be motivated to take the medication and the intervention will be tailored to the individual. The disadvantages are that any fixes may be temporary because the cause of high blood pressure is not identified. Also, predicting new cases of disease (known as incidence) is difficult to predict for individual.

Assembly Select Committee On Women’s Reproductive Health

Wednesday, March 11th, 2020

This Select Committee on Women’s Health Issues: How to overcome religious barriers to accessing basic human rights and services. the special interest committee is Chaired by Assembly woman Rebecca Bauer-Kahan, (D-Dist 16-Orinda) and was attended by 4 of the 7 committee members: assembly woman and 2019 Women’s Caucus Chair Monique Limon, (D-37 and Assembly member. Asm David Chiu, (D-17-S.F.)and Asm Sidney Kamlager, (D-Dist 54 .San Diego).

The sole purpose of this meeting was to present findings on the apparently planned manner to embroil the Catholic Church and Catholic hospitals in expensive and prejudicial charges of failure to provide adequate services to patients due to church restrictions on certain procedures now deemed to be right and just. This committee plans to cause serious legal problems and funding losses for, especially Dignity Health, formerly referred to as Catholic Healthcare West.

CBS News promotes Planned Parenthood’s $45 million brazen “We Decide 2020″ election campaign to defeat Trump and Pro-Life!

Dear Friends,

Planned Parenthood and their sycophantic media allies are really casting caution to the winds in their drive to defeat President Trump and win dominance in the U.S. Congress, Senate and House, in state elections, and right down to the local school board, ballot initiatives, etc. — with the appointment and confirmation of pro-abortion, pro-Planned-Parenthood federal judges and especially their "crown jewel" being control of the Supreme Court of the U.S. !!!

Please see the following 5 minute 24 second long "news" clip form CBS on Thursday, January 16, by "Reporter" Kate Smith — who appears to be working directly for Planned Parenthood!!!

There is not the slightest pretense of "balance" in this "news" and the two CBS news "anchors" join enthusiastically with Kate Smith in extolling and praising Planned Parenthood, and at least implicitly condemning anyone who opposes Planned Parenthood and their expansion of abortions !!!

Headline: "Planned Parenthood launches $45 million investment in 2020 elections"

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/planned-parenthood-45-million-we-decide-2020-elections-investment-today/

Planned Parenthood states that they are "investing" $45 million in their 2020 election campaigning and brazenly naming this Planned Parenthood campaign: "We Decide 2020"

This 5 minute, 24 second CBS "news" segment looks exactly like an "informercial" for Planned Parenthood !!!

Please view it carefully!

It gives us an early warning on how far Planned Parenthood and their mainstream media allies like CBS and their Democrat political collaborators like all the Democrat presidential candidates and Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Impeachment Manager Adam Schiff (both of California) are planning to go to defeat President Trump and all pro-life candidates to the U.S. Senate and House and on down to local school boards and ballot initiatives in their brazen "We Decide 2020" campaign !!!

We need to be more committed than PP to winning for a Culture of Life in the crucial 2020 election year or Planned Parenthood will have even more political power and wealth for the destruction of Life, Youth, Marriage, Family, and Faith than ever before !!!

Holy Spirit inspire, guide, and encourage us to defend all God’s children from mass, pre-natal murder by Planned Parenthood, and to defend all God’s young people from moral corruption by Planned Parenthood and their media collaborators and sycophants, and their Democrat political allies, stooges, and toadies!!!

CRLC’s Director, Camille Giglio clarifies a few pieces of data. Searching the number of births recorded in last in 10 years for California female babies vs male babies is now almost impossible to locate. Some parents are refusing to have a gender identity on birth records; but, mostly the birth rate for both male and female babies is now at its lowest in a long time according to Planned Parenthood’s ads and media interviews. Everybody on the left rejoices because it is lowering the population numbers. 2019 is listed as the lowest overall rate of births in a long time. What everyone fails to mention is that is that women are not less fertile now, but that PP is killing off the conceived children.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD USES PROPAGANDA TO SEDUCE OUR CHILDREN DURING SCHOOL TIME

The new legislative year begins January 6th and the carry-over bills from last term (see article below) will probably be dealt with first.

The link below is to an article in the National Catholic Register. The author of the article, Miss Mary Rose Short has been a long time activist in protecting the lives of the preborn and in the protection of the young, high school- College aged women from the seductive influences of Planned Parenthood. The bill being referred to is SB1030 by Asm Ian Calderon. Pro life groups opposed the bill because of the obvious but not publicly stated Planned Parenthood involvement.

Then it was discovered that through carelessness, one would presume, a loophole showed up in the bill that would permit pro life literature to also be distributed through the bill. When the error was discovered Planned Parenthood quickly registered its opposition to the bill as did a number of its supportive community organizations. This fortunate bit of carelessness exposes, once again, PP’s and it’s supporters extreme bias and prejudice against allowing our youth to have any true “Right to Know” privileges.

Now Pro Lifers support the bill and PP opposes it.

Click here to read the very well written report by Ms. Short.

California Right to Life is starting off the new year with a new approach to reporting on legislation and public policy issues. We will continue to report on legislation by sending out weekly notices on bills that also connect one to the bill itself along with pertinent information on how to contact the committee or legislator connected with the bill. Please take a moment and provide us with your name, City and zip code and your email address.

Planned Parenthood Blocks California Bill That Would Help Patients Report Abuse

Assembly Bill 1030, designed to inform female patients about what to expect during pelvic examinations and enable them to identify illegal predatory behavior, has been tabled.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — California’s Assembly Bill 1030, designed to inform female patients about what to expect during pelvic examinations and enable them to identify illegal predatory behavior, sailed through the Assembly committees, the Assembly floor and the Senate committees unanimously — seemingly on its way to becoming law.

Then Planned Parenthood submitted a letter of opposition: The bill, introduced this spring, immediately stalled and, two weeks later, was ordered to the “inactive” file.

Take away God, all respect for civil laws, all regard for even the most necessary institutions disappears; justice is scouted; the very liberty that belongs to the law of nature is trodden underfoot; and men go so far as to destroy the very structure of the family, which is the first and firmest foundation of the social structure.
