Palliative care is good, but cannot deal with everything. For example no drugs could do a thing for my nausea so bad I had to learn to read while vomiting. It could do absolutely nothing for kidney stones. It could not help my step mom with pancreas cancer. Just because palliative care works for many people, does not mean those for whom it does not work should be forced to rely on it.
Christianity is a sadistic cult. They focus on the suffering of Jesus and the martyrs as profound virtue. Mother Theresa refused pain killers to her charges dying of cancer. This is sick. Christians should not be permitted to force suffering on others just to get their religious jollies.~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:70)
