Oregon passes bill allowing mentally ill patients to be starved to death

The first U.S. state that legalized doctors killing sick patients has now passed a bill that critics say will allow healthcare givers to starve to death mentally ill patients.

Oregon’s Senate passed House Bill 4135 on Tuesday (17-12) and in the House two weeks ago (35-25). Touted as an update to Oregon’s Advance Directive Form, critics say the bill paves the way for healthcare givers to remove access to food and water for vulnerable Oregonians with illnesses such as dementia and Alzheimer’s.

Oregon Right to Life (ORTL) Executive Director Lois Anderson says the effect of the bill is that “vulnerable Oregonians are left without protections and their right to basic care like food and water.”

“The advance directive was put into Oregon statute back in 1993,” State Rep. Bill Kennemer (R) explained, adding that it was “very well vetted” and “thoroughly discussed.”

“If it were to be removed from statute, I fear the legal protections we carefully placed there could be jeopardized, potentially harming end of life decisions for vulnerable patients,” he added.

Under the old advanced directive, caretakers may not decide to starve a mentally impaired patient to death unless that caretaker has been given decision-making authority by the patient before becoming mentally impaired (with four rare exceptions).

HB-4135 reverses that provision, allowing a mentally impaired patient to be starved to death — even against his or her will — unless the patient has made a contrary advanced directive.

“If signed into law, HB-4135 would endanger Oregonians with dementia and Alzheimer’s, allowing their healthcare representatives to remove their access to food and water,” the ORTL website explains.

  1. This is inhumane to the max. It’s murder. It’s just so family members can get rid of their “useless baggage.”

    1. Oh this “law” is also useful to the State of Oregon when it comes to paying Pensions or Retirement and Disability Payments. With just a few adjustments VERY useful. In fact if this “law” catches on many states who are looking at insolvency due to being unable to pay Pensions may have a way to solvency. Of course their populations will drop; nah just bring one illegal for each pensioner disappeared..

    1. Well you are half correct. It is illegal under NATURAL Law BUT it is legal under STATUTE law. Problem is the people who will indirectly KILL you will probably follow STATUTE Law; they almost always do.

  2. america you have lost it…wow…just like the nazis in ww2…they did that and gas them to boot….fu*king retards……

  3. “HB-4135 reverses that provision, allowing a mentally impaired patient to be starved to death — even against his or her will — unless the patient has made a contrary advanced directive.”

    Yep this sounds like the Peoples Republic of Oregon. Next up a law making firearms illegal. What else? Yeah bullets too.

  4. even against his or her will — unless the patient has made a contrary advanced directive. He or She who signs this bill should be automatically BANNED from Any Advanced Directive, You passed it You live with what You signed

  5. The United States of America is, and has been for most of its existence, a corrupt, enslaving, tyrannical country. We have been lied to in the government indoctrination camps (known as public schools) for generations, and brainwashed into being willing accomplices.
