Governor Brown must begin hearing from you beginning September 8th to veto AB15b End-Of-Life Option Act.  916-445-2841 (automated) Or, http://govnews.ca.gov/gov39mail/mail.php

Think about this folks.  Everything about the abortion industry is cloaked in hidden meaning. “Reproductive Rights,” Healthcare for women,”  all these phrases are code words for death for a baby.

Palliative Care for seniors means dehydration and starvation and eventual death for the senior or disabled individual.   Neither of these are health care.

Clarke Forsythe, senior legal counsel for Americans United for Life and author of “The Abuse of Discretion,” was speaking at a recent Federalist Society meeting in San Francisco.  It seems that the papers from some of the retired and deceased members of the Supreme Court involved with the Roe v Wade decision are now open for inspection.  Mr. Forsythe wrote a book called “Abuse of Discretion” reporting on what he learned from these papers.

The book begins by declaring that “Roe and Doe began, in the Supreme Court, as a serious procedural mistake resulting from a case in the California Courts referred to as Younger v Harris that left the Justices without any factual record to consider the complex historical, legal, medical and constitutional issues surrounding abortion.”

The important words here being…”without any factual record.”  That may well have been one of the reasons that people like then pro abortion Dr. Bernard Nathanson always claimed that he and his group just made up some figures about the women who died from back alley abortions. When it was realized that this was an improper follow up to that case certain justices, basically said, oh, well, let’s just go on and make this an abortion decision.

Then 20 years later came Planned Parenthood v Casey (former Governor of Pennsylvania) which said that prohibitions against abortion placed undue burdens on a pregnant woman. Again, with little to no factual data. This was followed by The Carhart Decision which claimed that abortion was safer than childbirth for women. Again, no factual data to back it.  This phrase, according to the research conducted by Mr. Forsythe came from one line in an obscure book written by a pro abortion writer whose name was never brought to light.

There were no facts presented to prove that then. There are no facts present today to declare that palliative care is best for terminally ill, disabled or depressed patients, yet that’s the claim being made.

Abortion was never , nor ever will be better or safer than birth; and starving a patient to death will never be better than some pain and discomfort attached to a terminal illness. Palliative Care is DeathCare.

It’s another department within the health care industry authorized to kill innocent human beings because some carefully contrived slogan said life would be an undue burden.

PRESENT SITUATION:

On September 8, AB15b, End of Life Options (formerly SB128) will receive its last legislative approval and be sent to the Governor.  This is the basic authorizing bill giving members of the medical profession (not just doctors) the right to decide if your life is worth the effort to heal or not.

SB19, Lois Wolk, POLST. This is the piece of paper that these DeathCare industry people seek in order to legitimately take away life from ill people.  It, too, is up for a final floor vote on the Assembly floor in the next few days. Call your Assembly member and urge a NO vote.

Getting patients to the point where they will submit to Palliative care is contingent on obtaining the patient’s approval and a signature on a POLST form.  Contained in this and in federal legislation is a section on mandating consultations and to entice the medical profession to hold these consultations. The US Dept of Health requested that the Center for Medicare and Medicaid develop a proposal to add a new payment  schedule to the rules, for consultation fees to be provided by the doctor or other designated medical personnel. (Read further…)

DO NOT ASSUME THAT EITHER OF THESE BILLS ARE BEING HEAVILY OPPOSED BY RELIGIOUS GROUPS ON YOUR BEHALF.  Call your Assembly member yourself, especially the Democrats and most especially the Catholic Democrats.  These two bills got through both houses of the legislature because all these legislators voted for them without reservation



ON THE FEDERAL LEVEL.
The Revisions to payment policy www.regulations.gov/#1docketDetail;D=CMS-2015=0081
CMS-2015-0081.  Closes its public comment period on September 8th. 

This proposal would authorize Medicare, amending Title XVlll of the Social Security Act to allow the government (we taxpayers) to pay for consultations by government trained consultants and associates to discuss with a patient just how that particular patient (maybe you) would like to end their lives.

Remember: We the taxpayers are paying for killing babies and now the government wants to force us to pay for consultations to convince patients and families to terminate the lives of our senior family members.  But, this is merely a proposal. It needs legislation to appropriate the funding.

S. 1549 by Virginia Senator Mark Warner, (D) MediCare Beneficiaries Illness Care Coordination. Shortened version the Care Planning  Act of 2015. This Act  Appropriates $15M for one year to train, advocate and advertise for the right of a patient with a terminal illness to seek consultation which would be paid for by the taxpayer.

The training of the consultants will be for developing talking points to encourage patients to sign the POLST form. The advocacy and advertising will be to convince people to accept that they have a right to die at an appointed time with the assistance of a medically prescribed drug provided by a pharmacist.

HR 3251 by Iowa Congressman Steve King, (R) Exclude Advance care Planning Under Medicare. Would prohibit amending Title XVlll to include payment for consultations. Cong. King needs your support to fight for a hearing for this bill which is sitting in the House Energy and Commerce Committee. Email to: Richard.Stern@mail.house.gov.

If AB15b passes and the idea of consultations is in the bill, this will become an lobbying tool for Warner to further promote his legislation.

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.
