The short answer is YES. And so is the long answer from a so-called prolife State Senator:
“The bill, sponsored by Sen. Peggy Lehner, R-Kettering, would create the Medical Order for Life-Sustaining Treatment (MOLST), giving instruction on whether a patient wants to be hospitalized, resuscitated or given comfort care.” ~ Columbus Dispatch
But the real answer is this: “Starting Jan. 1 the federal government will pay doctors who speak with Medicare patients about end-of-life care. The recent announcement by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services impacts about 50 million beneficiaries of the government’s health-care program for the elderly and disabled.” ~ Columbus Dispatch
And, interestingly: “The decision has not had the backlash as a similar proposal included in President Barack Obama’s health-care overhaul several years ago. It was subsequently stripped from the Affordable Care Act after complaints it would create ‘death panels‘.” ~ Columbus Dispatch

State Senator Peggy Lehner has once again shown that she is not prolife and can’t be trusted. She said this bill is not about assisted suicide, much like how medical marijuana doesn’t open the door to recreational weed? This bill swings the door out widely for death panels. Lehner lies. She recently said that ‘Planned Parenthood does some good‘ while calling herself a prolifer, see the video below and go here [at minute 146]. LIES. Over and over again she proves she has an agenda to keep her job rather than doing what she was elected to do: PROTECT ALL LIFE. Lehner made a nice showing at the Martin Haskell hearing last week, I suppose her stern, apathetic look toward a deliberate criminal would look ‘prolife’,? REALLY?
Peggy, we are watching.
