When I heard what speakers at the November conference on bioethics were saying about crimes being committed against Hospice patients and people in hospitals, all in the name of bioethics and business efficiency, I knew we had to invite some of the key speakers and their associates in that conference to be on the show. The information coming out of that conference was so important, critical to anyone going into the hospital themselves or wanting to help a patient that is in the hospital or hospice, I felt that all of us including myself needed an update on how decisions are made in these institutions, especially about end of life issues, abortion, and euthanasia. We all need to understand more about what medical terms and policies actually mean, before we sign an agreement that does not really say what we thought it did.
I consider myself pretty well-informed on many aspects of healthcare policy, but what I learned from conference speakers about euthanasia being practiced in hospitals and Hospice, on both old and young patients in critical health situations, was new to me. I wanted to find out more, and I needed a whistleblower from inside the medical industry, with direct experience in Hospice, to be a guest on our show. Ron Panzer, consultant on Hospice, founder and President of Hospice Patients Alliance (www.hospicepatients.org), co-founder of Pro-Life Healthcare Alliance, was the perfect choice, and we are fortunate he agreed to be on the Sunday show. This discussion is important for you to hear so that you understand what Hospice policies and practices are, and you will be able to make more informed choices of what happens to those you love when decisions have to be made about their care in some of the hardest of situations many of us will have to face.
