Which Medical Ethics for Granny?

Wesley J. Smith pointed this out, saying: “The obligatory official proclamations didn’t mention that suicide is now promoted widely in the media, popular culture, and by political activists seeking to legalize so-called ‘death with dignity’ or ‘aid in dying.’” Smith’s analysis includes the fact that Biden’s document barely mentions serious illness as a reason for suicide and fails to “mention that laws allowing facilitated suicide impede the effective prevention of those suicides and insidiously send a wider nihilistic message that self-killing [is] an acceptable answer to suffering.”

Earlier this month, President Joe Biden issued a “Proclamation on World Suicide Prevention Day.” But Biden failed to include assisted suicide in the document.

Wesley J. Smith pointed this out,saying: “The obligatory official proclamations didn’t mention that suicide is nowpromoted widelyin the media, popular culture, and by political activists seeking to legalize so-called ‘death with dignity’ or ‘aid in dying.’” Smith’s analysis includes the fact that Biden’s document barely mentions serious illness as a reason for suicide and fails to “mention that laws allowing facilitated suicide impede the effective prevention of those suicides and insidiously send a wider nihilistic message that self-killing [is] an acceptable answer to suffering.”

This should be a concern for every committed pro-life American because the facts indicate that the elderly aremost vulnerableto the drumbeat…

  1. Considering some of the “talk” about “assisted suicide”, I think the pro-assisted suicide folks would “accept” any reason for suicide including depression in the non-elderly.

    Depression is an illness but can be fought.

    Those people likely wouldn’t help anybody fight depression. :mad:

  2. Agree with Paul. Lost a beloved uncle to suicide after his wife died of bone cancer at 55. The idea of “assisting” suicide turns my stomach. It is one of the inevitable cultural results of having abandoned God.

  3. It’s accepted by the guys pushing it because it puts others out of the pusher’s misery. (IE, it’s killing people who annoy them.)

  4. Speaking of saving, not killing (cough. CDC covid protocols. cough) I am sharing this far and wide:

    A nursing care facility in Spain that managed to save all but three of their patients (the ones before they started treatment) of their residents, all of whom caught Covid-19. Average age was 80 with the usual comorbidities. All patients were fully seroconverted!

    Link to the paper to print & share with your doctor Antihistamines and azithromycin as a treatment for COVID-19 on primary health care – A retrospective observational study in elderly patients (nih.gov)

    TL’DR
    All but the azithromycin and Lexofloxacine (antibiotics) are well-tested over-the-counter meds and can be used safely and prophylactically. Remember to check with your pharmacy MD (*not* your doctor) to be sure that any medicine is safe for you personally to use (allergies, drug interactions, etc.).

    1. At the first symptoms, regardless of severity: Every 12h “ceirizine 10mg or loratadine 10mg”

    2. With mild or recent onset symptons: “Azithromycin 500mg orally every 24h for 3 days and for 6 days if the duration of symptoms is prolonged”.
    If pain or fever, acetaminophen 650mg / 6-8h
    Nasal washing & gargling with … half a glass of water with half a tsp. of sodium bicarbonate.”
    3. Severe symptoms: “Antihistamines + Azithromycin (see mild treatment management)
    Levofloxacin 500 mg / 12h up to 14 days of antibiotic treatment from diagnosis
    Mepiflin solution, 50mg / 8h as a bronchodilator until subjective improvement” (COPD patients use usual bronchodilators)”
    For “increased breathing difficulty, prednisone 1 mg / kg [body weight] / day divided into two doses untii clincial improvement … then slowly tapered down”
    4. For all close contacts, “including all asymptomatic residents: Antihistamines at the same dose as symptomatic patients.
    List of medicines:

    Cetrizine = Zyrtec
    Loratadine = Claritin
    Dexchlorpheniramine = used to be common antihistamine in the U.S.; still used in Europe
    Mepiflin = Fluidasa a European bronchodilator like Albuterol. Ask the pharmacist for comparative U.S. brands & dosage.

    At the end of the day it doesn’t matter what one wants to do with the pseudo-vaccine or the various mask options, so long as a body can still catch and transmit the disease for which these tools were designed (Some background on pseudo-vaccines from a non-hot button topic: cows.This writer is a useful one without reading scientific papers directly: Bovine Coronavirus and Us – by eugyppius – eugyppius (substack.com)

    After all our goal is to treat & safeguard our beloved elders!

    1. Went to spam for some reason– did you mention something WWII related?

      (I had TWO comments on Sarah’s go to moderation, one mentioned the leader of the USSR at that time, one was that French general at the time….)
