Palliative Care Bullies

Palliative care staff are bullying patients at death’s door who have no energy to resist.

Even trying to talk people out of dying in unwarranted interference. At best staff should explain the options, but not try to push one option down the patient’s throat.

Medical staff are motivated by ancient religious beliefs. They think they are doing the right thing, but in actuality they are violating the patient’s freedom of religion by trying to talk them out of the euthanasia option.

Staff think that they have succeeded if they bully a patient into accepting another couple of months of low-quality life. They don’t care about the patient’s welfare, only obtaining religious brownie points.
