Involuntary euthanasia of the elderly

Briefing. Concerned relatives should contact the Patients First Network.

From the Pro-Life Times (SPUC), in part: [According to Government figures] In 2006 a total of 240 people over the age of 65 died of malnutrition.
... 'No-one is using the word 'euthanasia' in these situations. However, persistent low-level neglect, in hospitals and nursing homes, has opened the door wide for the process of legalised euthanasia by omission. We fear this will be rapidly accelerated by the enactment of the Mental Capacity Act.'

Becaus I have looked at the Pro-Life Times (SPUC) and cannot find it.


Thankyou

The Pro-Life Times is published in hard copy only, and sent to supporters. SPUC used to put in on their website but stopped doing this in 2005. You need to contact SPUC.

Pope Leo XIII's Prayer to St Michael

Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust down to Hell Satan, and all wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
