Sick and Disabled Infants Starved and Dehydrated: Britain’s Modern Baby Doe

By Jacqueline H. Abernathy, Ph.D. A news article entitled “Now sick babies go on death pathway: Doctor's haunting testimony reveals how children are put on end-of-life plan” from the UK’s Daily Mail is commanding considerable attention to end-of-life care in Great Britain. The article cites commentary from the British Medical Journal (BMJ) by an anonymous physician, who admits that he/she oversees the intentional starvation and dehydration of infants with disabilities, a practice previously thought to apply only to the elderly and terminally-ill under the controversial Liverpool Care Pathway (LCP) protocol for palliative care in the U.K.

Massachusetts’ “Death with Dignity” Initiative: Questions Regarding Question 2

By Jacqueline H. Abernathy, Ph.D. The 2012 “Act Relative to Death with Dignity” goes before Massachusetts voters on November 6. Question 2 asks voters directly whether to legalize physician-assisted suicide (PAS) or uphold existing state statutes.  If voters affirm Question 2, Massachusetts would join Oregon, Washington and Montana as the only states in the U.S. to allow this practice. Recent studies on PAS in these states paint a revealing portrait of what would transpire in Massachusetts if voters approve Question 2. However, unlike citizens of Oregon who passed the first “Death with Dignity Act” in 1997, voters in Massachusetts have the benefit of learning the actual outcomes of such legislation in other states.  Voters now have access to numerous studies that both vindicate opponents’ predictions about PAS and present even more concerns.
