Liver transplant lists and a study that was never published - a whistle-blower about insurance company policy. No names though, history to reflect on current events.
Also a link to Yakk Stack, info about the assisted suicide MAiD policy in Canada, and a list of overpopulation non-profits.
Dr. Melinek is sharing history of a study performed that showed one insurance company in particular were referring patients at more critical stages of liver damage for a liver transplant. Patients with stage 3 or 4 liver disease were more likely to die anyway, even if a transplant was found. The study confirmed suspicions by the team and the information was taken to the insurance company to suggest that a change in referral criteria could save more lives.
The study was squelched, never published, and Dr. Melinek realized that the death of a stage 3 or 4 patient in surgery or shortly after would be cheaper for the insurance company than having a stage 1 or 2 patient survive the transplant and continue to need years of specialized care. She got more suspicious after that experience as the issue was no longer discussed by the superiors on her team. “I was told to forget about it.” - Judy Melinek, MD
She goes on to question CoV policies. Her conclusions are not pleasant, but realistic in my opinion.
“Perverse Economies: Who Is Worth Saving? — It's often cheaper to let people die”, by Judy Melinek, MD January 5, 2023, “Judy Melinek, MD, is an American forensic pathologist and the CEO of PathologyExpert Inc. She is currently working as a contract pathologist in Wellington, New Zealand.” (https://www.medpagetoday.com/opinion/second-opinions/102515) * You may need to register to view the article, I am not sure.
A related topic is discussed in a Canadian based Substack - “Decarbonizing” - what? humans? It seems like it. Medically Assisted in Dying (MAiD) is now a Canadian policy. People with disabilities or chronic health issues can ask to be suicided - especially useful for them if they are having trouble paying their bills...as if they are being MADE to do it. (MAiD - End-of-Life Law and Policy in Canada, eol.law.da.ca)
There are A LOT of non-profit organizations focused on overpopulation. Humans are hard on the planet, but modern lifestyle is harder on the planet than the humans themselves.
This site has a neatly compiled list of more than I realized exist: overpopulation-project.com / Organizations dealing with overpopulation.
