Chemin d'Liverpool

The Brits have their Liverpool Pathway, and we (now) have the ACA Death Panels, and it appears that the French are well on their way, as well:

"Doctors in France will have the right to put terminally-ill patients into a deep sleep until they die, under plans unveiled [recently]that reignited a national debate on euthanasia."

Of course, when the government pays for your healthcare (as they do in France), it gets to call the shots (so to speak). And it also gets to say when said shots stop. Such is the nature of a socialized health care scheme: who pays the piper calls the tune.

Of further course, killing off your patients is a great way to cut costs and, of further course, there's no recidivism. So, win-win. Well, except for the patient.
