Euthanasia in New Orleans
“NEW ORLEANS, Louisiana (CNN) — Three days after Hurricane Katrina flooded New Orleans, staff members at the city’s Memorial Medical Center had repeated discussions about euthanizing patients they thought might not survive the ordeal, according to a
doctor and nurse manager who were in the hospital at the time.”
I find this to be very troubling. There were so very many problems and so many challenges that needed to be overcome. However the reality is that this discussion started very early in the game and I am concerned that people would be willing to throw in the towel so quickly.
I think that I need to sleep on this and think about it some more.
