Death panels are alive and well in America’s hospitals. The one at Massachusetts General is called a Bioethics Committee. But it has the power to impose unilateral Do-Not-Resuscitate orders on patients without their permission or even if the patient or their families are opposed. Bioethicist, Wesley Smith, reported that according to hospital records, thirty-eight percent of them were not at the end stage of a terminal disease but had a “potentially reversible” condition. We used to call this euthanasia. Wesley also uncovered another staggering fact. Patients of color were more likely to have the involuntary DNR forced upon them. This alarming evidence shows we’re quickly moving down the slippery slope of widespread euthanasia.
