For some unknown reason, this story popped back up on the wires yesterday. Either way, old or new, it is a window into the future under Obamacare.
For those that missed it last June, the State of Oregon refused a woman enrolled in their state health care program her chemotherapy treatment because she wasn’t a viable candidate for recovery. They instead offered to pay for her to die via the assisted suicide program legalized in that state.
Now, I’m all for assisted suicide (and I don’t only mean what needs to be done to repeat child molesters). However, using that program as a replacement for cancer treatment just to save the government run health care program a few bucks is disgusting, to say the least.
