In light of President Obama’s September 9th speech to Congress where he stressed that he will not tolerate any more delays on health care reform, and that the "time for talk is winding down," it is more important now than ever for pro-lifer to keep up to date with the rationing and euthanasia issues in the health care restructuring!

ENDANGERS AMERICA'S SENIORS
WASHINGTON – The health care bill proposed by Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus on September 16 contains a dangerous provision that creates a financial incentive for Medicare doctors to deny treatments to seniors.
National Right to Life Executive Director, David N. O'Steen, Ph.D, says, "This is the cruelest and most effective way to ensure that doctors are forced to ration care for their senior citizen patients. It takes the telltale fingerprints from the government: instead of bureaucrats directly specifying the treatment denials that will mean death and poorer health for older people, it compels individual doctors to do the dirty work. It is an outrageous way to provide coverage for the uninsured - by taking it away from America's senior citizens." Click here to read more.
