....Canada has "death panels" and it's a "goot thing."
Last week Canada’s Supreme Court ruled that doctors could not unilaterally ignore a Toronto family’s decision to keep their near-dead husband and father on life support. In the same breath, however, the court also confirmed that, under the laws of Ontario, Canada’s most populous province, a group of government-appointed adjudicators could yet overrule the family’s choice. That tribunal, not the family or the doctors, has the ultimate power to pull the plug.
In other words: Canada has death panels.
So, let's score this:
1. Patient consent is no matter the controlling issue, and
2. In Canada, you doctor will kill you under the right circumstances, and
3. Screw that Hippocratic Oath!
Welcome to Civilization 3.0.
