Stealth Euthanasia and Hospice

DIRECT KILLING or withholding life-sustaining treatment is occurring in America’s hospice programs.  (Hospice settings can be in a private home or a care center.)  Hospice care for Medicare patients over 65 saves millions of dollars for Medicare:  it’s cheaper to put a patient in hospice than in the hospital.  However, hospital treatments could be the best choice.

Dr. Ron Panzer, president of the pro-life Hospice Patients Alliance (HPA), says there’s a hidden threat inside the hospice industry that’s been growing like a cancer for decades—and most people don’t realize it until it’s too late:  Hospice workers all over the country are routinely killing patients.
