I won't live very long according to Rick Santorum

Rick Santorum, Feb. 3: In the Netherlands people wear a different bracelet if you’re elderly and the bracelet is ‘do not euthanize me.’ Because they have voluntary euthanasia in the Netherlands, but half the people who are euthanized every year, and it’s 10 percent of all deaths for the Netherlands, half of those people are euthanized involuntarily at hospitals because they are older and sick. And so elderly people in the Netherlands don’t go to the hospital, they go to another country, because they are afraid, because of budget purposes, that they will not come out of that hospital if they go in with sickness.

-----------
Actually I don't worry about euthanasia. We have very strict rules and regulations and I'm happy that there is a possibility for euthanasia for those who really suffer. What worries me though is that a lunatic like Santorum can be in the race to become president of the USA, a big country with (still) so much power in world politics.

One LIE after another from this sick and disturbed individual. At a "faith conference" no less...

Rick Santorum grossly mischaracterized euthanasia practices in the Netherlands during an appearance at a faith conference. He overstated the rate of euthanasia and falsely claimed that the elderly are being killed against their will and wear “do not euthanize me” bracelets:

  • Santorum claimed legal euthanasia is responsible for “10 percent of all deaths for the Netherlands.” Government statistics show euthanasia is climbing, but represented only 2.3 percent in 2010, according to the most recent data.
  • Santorum added that half of the people euthanized were killed “involuntarily.” A representative of the Royal Dutch Medical Association said “there are no forced cases of euthanasia.” Dutch euthanasia review boards found nine cases in 2010 where doctors “had not acted in accordance with the due care criteria,” mostly for how the procedure was performed — not because it was against anyone’s will.
  • Santorum claimed the Dutch elderly wear bracelets that say “do not euthanize me,” but the Dutch government and medical association say no such bracelets exists. Santorum “might be confused with a ‘do not resuscitate’ bracelet or necklace” worn by some patients, a medical association representative said.

There are a lot of us here in the states that feel the same way. We even made up a nasty new definition of his last name and everything.

The Netherlands, one of the most..if not THE most Liberal Country in the world. I'm surprised they haven't been vocal about Sanitarum's lies.

There is way too much sick, twisted and demented extremism being promoted in the US and it is getting worse. I hope the Netherlands will raise a big stink over this foolishness.

santorum is batshit crazy and has been as long as i have been aware of him. gay folk have been putting up with his absolute horseshit for years. i guess straight america has to now.

but he wont ever win. as large as the batshit right wing voting block is disturbingly large in america, they're nowhere near large enough to vote him into office, and the sensible right wouldnt vote for him either.

If he ever becomes president, then he would be just another lying conservative like Bush.

I think he'd be worse than Bush. He doesn't even believe in separation of church and state: "JFK's 1960 Speech Made M... Throw Up"

blinded? no.

in severe need of glasses because of? yes.

the man tried twice to amend the federal constiution to ban gay marriage because of his religion and archaic beliefs for starters.

he's nowhere near as bad as santorum would be, though... credit where it's due, even if it's by comparison to a crazy extremist nutjob

Kennedy is right on. Church and state should be seperate. It has no role or place in politics, whatsoever.

If this man can lie about healthcare issues in the Netherlands, then he would lie about weapons or mass destruction.
