Recommended Posts

I just stumbled across this today, but the article is dated 19th Feb 2021



UK Government Orders 'Do Not Resuscitate' Notice for People With Learning Disabilites.


"The Guardian recently put to light a disparaging act by England’s healthcare authorities. People with learning disabilities have been given ‘Do Not Resuscitate’ or DNR orders without their or their family’s consent.

The issue came to light when Mencap, a charity, told the press about healthcare providers acting on DNR and telling people with learning disabilities (like Down’s Syndrome, Dyslexia, etc.) that they won’t be resuscitated if they got infected with COVID19......"


This has to more than slightly remind us of Nazi Germany ....?
