You're wrong, and what you said remains offensively stupid. You equivocated palliation and homicide. I think that's the most idiotic effort you've ever put forth and I could not disagree more.
It is clear that in your dishonesty you are pretending I have been convinced by you that palliation is somehow unacceptable... since it apparently needs to be said, despite all reason, I do believe in alleviating uncomfortable symptoms for these folks. That is compassionate. There is a hard line between helping and deliberately harming your patient, however.
So don't tell me about compassion and mercy when your solution is unnecessary killing. That seems to be your solution in general, to promote killing whenever possible and accuse others of moral lapses for not thinking of killing as the best solution for any problem. It's clear that you have no respect whatsoever for primum non noncere, but physicians are supposed to.
By your standard palliative workers who don't take the law into their own hands and smother granny just lack compassion and mercy. I'm sure if any of them were here they'd have some nice words for you.
