Patients with terminal illnesses are being made to die prematurely under an NHS scheme to help end their lives, leading doctors warn today.

In a letter to The Daily Telegraph, a group of experts who care for the terminally ill claim that some patients are being wrongly judged as close to death.

Under NHS guidance introduced across England to help doctors and medical staff deal with dying patients, they can then have fluid and drugs withdrawn and many are put on continuous sedation until they pass away.

Looks like Obama might not be able to do this right away..they made a mistake and actually said what they intend to do instead of flat out lying and then just doing it later..

The NHS is in Britain, right?

The US is not joining the NHS, so who cares about this (whether it's true or not).
