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

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.

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.
- St. Pius X, Jucunda Sane, March 12, 1904
