Deadly Big Brother, MVNHS©-style

Young and old, government-run health "care" schemes are getting pretty good at reining in the cost of care. Last month, for example, we learned how the Dutch manage such a feat:

"A Dutch woman doctor who asked an elderly patient’s family to hold her down while she administered a fatal drug dose has been cleared under Holland’s euthanasia laws"

But hey, that's just a sick old woman. No way this would happen to a youngling.



"Doctors can withdraw life support from a sick baby with a rare genetic condition against his parents' wishes"

Apparently, It takes a village to kill a child.

But wait, it gets even better (for certain values of "better"):

"His parents ... had wanted to take him to the US for a treatment trial."

Of course, this is far from the first time we've blogged on the Much Vaunted National Health System©'s war on children:

"A mother has described how her baby was left to die 'like an abandoned animal' after hospital doctors repeatedly ignored her desperate pleas for help."

Which begs the question: how, exactly, are our Cousins Across the Pond going to pay for care, since they keep killing off their young 'uns?
