The Hippocratic Oath is an oath historically taken by physicians

It is one of the most widely known of Greek medical texts

No, many of the hospices today model themselves after Florence Wald, RN, MN's vision where assisted suicide would be available for economic reasons or just about any other reason! The euthanasia proponents, knowing Americans' traditional opposition to medical killing, have pretended to be powerless to do anything. Yes, they have pretended to be far away, as if they weren't even acting here in America, except for the "overt" euthanasia proponents run by what some people would think were "loonies" like Derek Humphry of the Hemlock Society.

Robert Woods Johnson Foundation is still making grants and supporting the work to change how Americans think about dying and how they die. They are funding the National Hospice & Palliative Care Organization's "Caring Connections" program. This is the successor to the Euthanasia Society as we've seen.

The federal government saves billions when many patients go into hospice all across the country and die sooner rather than later (had they gone into the acute care hospital and been treated). And it is appropriate at a certain point to let go and allow a natural death, but the point where staff give up is arriving earlier and earlier, to the dismay of many patients and families. Sometimes, it can be as simple as intentionally not providing rehabilitation after a minor stroke or not prescribing the appropriate common medication or dosage to effectively control high blood pressure or manage a heart condition. When proper treatment is not provided, the patient ends up in the hospital, in hospice, or dies outright much sooner than they would have.

Doctors Aren't Bound by the Hippocratic Oath

During the widely publicized battle to save Terri Schiavo's life, thousands of people protested, wrote letters, emails, went to Washington and the state capitol in Florida, protested outside the Woodside hospice facility of the Hospice of the Florida Suncoast. After all the legal wrangling and court decisions were done, Terri was killed. Many thought that was the end of it, but as we've seen, her execution was the public "show" execution put on for the "benefit" of the world, to demonstrate that the disabled be killed and be killed. That image, deliberately imprinted onto our minds, was the desired result of the "show" execution. The major media writers did not give voice to those disability rights activists who protested for years. They parroted the words of the euthanasia advocates in the hospice industry.

RESEARCH LITERATURE: DEATH & DYING - EUTHANASIA

The contrast between those pushing the culture of death and those who affirm the sanctity of life is like night and day. To fix the problem, we've got to simply turn around, get off this road, a path designed by the utilitarian, socialist, anti-life culture of death. Many of them control what is happening at the government level, both state and federal. They know about the medical killings. They want them to happen. But we must remember that they are not wiser, smarter, better qualified in any sense to decide that America must resemble Nazi Germany in how it treats the most vulnerable of us all. You are wiser and together the people can be more powerful than any elite group. Whatever they set out to destroy: religion, family, traditional values and morality .... these are the things that we need to strengthen.

Yes, the same Callahan who was a member of the American Eugenics Society, founder of the Hastings Center that worked with Last Acts to change how Americans think about dying and how they die, and, most famous for his quote, ". This is the guy that advises the United States Department of Health and Human Services "Office of Scientific Responsibility." How does that strike you? Is he the person you would want to decide whether you live or die, or whether your loved one lives or dies?

Remember Willard Gaylin, MD? The co-founder of the Hastings Center that had a pivotal role in shaping how Last Acts worked to change America's view of death and dying and changing how Americans die? Right. a "clinical professor of psychiatry at Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons, specializing in the private practice of psychiatry and psychoanalysis. He is presently serving on the board of directors of several organizations including: Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Inc., ... and The Hastings Center." So, one of the leaders who has shaped how America dies and thinks about dying (and helped twist Dame Cicely Saunders' vision of hospice into the culture of death) sits on the board of the largest killer of babies in the world, Planned Parenthood.
