Leftists who support nationalizing ALL of our health care into one, government-run operation claim this is the only “compassionate” choice. Click “continue reading” to hear how that’s working out for the Brits, who opted for this kind of system many years ago.

Five minutes after a state legalizes our “right to die”, those of us who need help to live are burdened with the DUTY to die by those who would rather be shut of our needs than pull up their socks and help.
The most devastating thing in this video is the real life consequence we’re seeing in Oregon, where euthanasia is legal. Insurance companies are sending patients letters saying, “We’ll pay for you to die, but not for you to live.”
Local churches, groups and individuals have joined disabled rights organizations, faith-based groups and advocates for the terminally ill in opposing California’s End of Life Option Act, SB 128, which is based on Oregon’s successfully enforced assisted-suicide law.
2012 Party Platforms on Abortion:
The Republican Party adheres to a “faithful to the ‘self-evident’ truths enshrined in the Declaration of Independence, we assert the sanctity of human life and affirm that the unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed. We support a human life amendment to the Constitution and endorse legislation to make clear that the Fourteenth Amendment’s protections apply to unborn children.”
The Democratic Party “strongly and unequivocally supports Roe v. Wade and a woman’s right to make decisions regarding her pregnancy, including a safe and legal abortion, regardless of ability to pay. We oppose any and all efforts to weaken or undermine that right.”
2012 Party Platforms on Euthanasia:
The Republican Party “opposes the non-consensual withholding or withdrawal of care or treatment, including food and water, from people with disabilities, including newborns, as well as the elderly and infirm, just as we oppose active and passive euthanasia and assisted suicide.”
The 2012 Democratic Party had nothing to say on the matter. However, given their support for killing unborn Americans and the results of the poll below, it’s not hard to figure what they’d say if they decided to make it a hot button issue.
The awesomest “pro-choice” defense of Planned Parenthood…ever
When Dr. Hallervorden learned that Nazis were euthanizing psychiatric patients en masse via carbon dioxide in “killing centers”, he says, “I went up to them and told them ‘Look here now boys, if you’re going to kill all these people, at least take the brains out so that the material could be utilized.’”
“There was wonderful material among those brains, beautiful defectives, malformations and early infantile diseases,” he said. “I accepted those brains, of course. Where they came from and how they came to me were really none of my business.”
Recent history is rife with examples of Christians being vilified as “slippery slope” straw man haters.
But each time, we have been proved right.
When “The Pill” was made available to the public in 1964, Christians warned it could lead to promiscuity and a rise in children living in broken and single parent homes.
When abortion was made legal throughout all nine months of pregnancy in 1973, Christians warned that it would not save women’s lives, but would instead lead to devaluing all human life, especially children’s lives.
When euthanasia was legalized in Oregon and other states, Christians warned that the non-terminally ill and eventually the mentally handicapped, or simply the unwanted, would be killed in the name of mercy.
This is happening.
When gay marriage was legalized in all 50 states, Christians warned it would lead to demands for legalizing polygamy.
I think we need to stop talking about how Obamacare is not working and look at how it is working. Obamacrats pushed it through; Obamcrats keep defending it. Clearly, as far as THEY are concerned, it is doing exactly what it was intended to do.
So what is that exactly?
- Government money grab.
- Government power grab.
- Loss of individual privacy.
- Loss of religious freedom.
- Obama is planning to stop providing the elderly with antidepressants, antipsychotics and the immunosuppressant drugs required by transplant patients.
- Obama has already mandated via regulation the end-of-life counseling that was pointedly removed from the ACA law itself.
In other words, “Sorry but no, you can’t have the pills that helped you function any more. But hey, if you’re real depressed about that, here’s a pamphlet about our free euthanasia program.”
The video linked below is an excerpt from the documentary “Architecture of Doom.”
It shows how the Nazis used nationalized health care (Hitlercare) to carry out an aggressive eugenics program of sterilization and euthanasia. Jews, Poles, Gypsies, the disabled, the retarded and the mentally ill were all defined as “infections” that had to be eradicated in order to bring about Utopia.
Eugenics was spawned by Darwin’s “Origin of Species.” Progressives (like Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood) were major promoters of human perfection via eugenics in the 1930’s. About 60,000 “defective” Americans were sterilized by eugenics programs in the United States alone.
One of Sanger’s dearest wishes was to use birth control and abortion to completely eliminate the Negro population from America. Her legacy, Planned Parenthood, is largely responsible for the below-replacement birth rate of American Blacks.
A top priority for ObamaCare has been free birth control, sterilization and abortion on demand. ObamaCare was 100% the product of far Left Democrats. These are the same people who booed God at the Democrat National Convention.
Are we seeing the pattern of atheism, nationalized healthcare and legalized murder here?

December 12, 2013: The Belgian Senate voted 50-17 today IN FAVOR of a bill that would allow EUTHANASIA FOR CHILDREN. The bill now goes to the House of Representatives for final approval before being sent to the King to be signed into law.
Most political observers are predicting the passage of the bill.
In 2002, Belgium legalized euthanasia on request for those 18 and over. Since then, the number of deaths by euthanasia has sky-rocketed and people in hospitals are increasingly being killed without their consent or the consent of their families.
Studies have demonstrated that:
- 32% of euthanasia deaths in the Flemish region of Belgium had been done without an explicit request;
- 45% of euthanasia deaths involving nurses in Belgium were without a specific request;
- 47.2% of euthanasia deaths in Belgium were not officially reported (which is required by the law);
- and elderly Belgians are becoming increasingly afraid of being hospitalized.
After six months in the papacy, Pope Francis gave his first extensive interview. Liberals are wetting themselves over how he supposedly gave the GOP “what for” and the Democrat Party “two thumbs up.”
Sheesh. Only in Liberal Bubble World would the leader of a GLOBAL CHURCH take sides in the partisan politics of a single nation.
Leftists know so little about Christianity in general or about the Catholic Church in particular. For example, they’re crowing about how the Pope is supposedly backing off on abortion, gay marriage and birth control.
What he said was, “We cannot insist only on issues related to abortion, gay marriage and the use of contraceptive methods.”
There’s no change in doctrine here.
What he said was that these issues don’t need to be discussed to the exclusion of all others. He was talking about the church not being too turned in on itself, too obsessed with rules. He said the church needs to be more of a field hospital, where people can feel cared for.
He also said, “I have never been a right-winger.”
I don’t know what “right-wing” means to an Argentinian, but I would hazard a guess it cannot be translated into American partisan politics to mean, “Jesus was a Democrat.”
Pope Francis has affirmed church teaching on abortion and euthanasia.
“We should commit ourselves to ‘eucharistic coherence’, that is, we should be conscious that people cannot receive holy communion and at the same time act or speak against the commandments, in particular when abortion, euthanasia, and other serious crimes against life and family are facilitated. This responsibility applies particularly to legislators, governors, and health professionals.”
“In Argentina, a child conceived by the rape of a mentally ill or retarded woman can be condemned to death.”
“In Argentina there is clandestine euthanasia. Social services pay up to a certain point; if you pass it, ‘die, you are very old’. Today, elderly people are discarded when, in reality, they are the seat of wisdom of the society. The right to life means allowing people to live and not killing, allowing them to grow, to eat, to be educated, to be healed, and to be permitted to die with dignity.”
Pope Francis has affirmed church teaching on homosexuality.
He has said that men and women who have deep-seated homosexual tendencies must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity and that every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided.
But he said their pursuit of equal rights is the devil’s work. He strongly opposed legislation introduced in 2010 by the Argentine Government to allow same-sex marriage, calling it a “real and dire anthropological throwback.” In a letter to the monasteries of Buenos Aires, he wrote:
“Let’s not be naïve, we’re not talking about a simple political battle; it is a destructive pretension against the plan of God. We are not talking about a mere bill, but rather a machination of the Father of Lies that seeks to confuse and deceive the children of God.”
Pope Francis has rejected Socialism:
Pope Francis spent a good deal of time in Argentina fighting against the modernist reforms of the government. Moreover, within the Church the spectre of liberation theologies that conflate Christ’s justice with Marxist principles was (and still is) a constant presence in Latin America.
“To those who are now promising to fix all your problems, I say, ‘Go and fix yourself.’ . . . Have a change of heart. Get to confession, before you need it even more! The current crisis will not be improved by magicians from outside the country and nor will [improvement] come from the golden mouth of our politicians, so accustomed to making incredible promises.”
Good comments from Twitchy:
- Liberal rodents love to show off how little they know about religion and how bad they are at self-awareness.
- The Holy Father is not an ally of the slime that ridiculed God.
- God a Democrat? Lay off the opium, pal.
- People have wondered how Latin American social democratic philosophies would play in the Vatican. It seems its more Libertarian than anything. De-emphasize rules. Emphasize core values. Jesus is our savior. The Church is here to help us know, love and serve God so we can be happy with Him forever.
- Only self-obsessed libs think everything is about them.
