|Adolf Eichmann: he'd love the Texas Advance Directives Act!|
Chris Dunn is every Texan.
As long as the Advanced Directive Act is on the books, not a single vulnerable patient in Texas is safe. Here's how Texas Right to Life puts it:
Not one Texan is immune to provision of the Texas Advance Directives Act (TADA-Chapter 166.046 of the Health & Safety Code) which allows nameless, faceless hospital committees to withdraw life-sustaining care despite objection from the patient and his family, and regardless of any written legal document outlining the patient’s wishes. They can do this based on a discriminatory “quality-of-life” judgment that a patient’s life and continued care are “futile.”Do you want faceless strangers making decisions on the treatment of your loved ones -- bureaucrats like the little Nazi clerk, Adolf Eichmann, deciding that your family member is a useless eater better off dead? That's where were moving, folks. Texas is just the tip of the iceberg.
