Sign the petition to stop ‘do not revive’ orders on people with learning disabilities who catch Covid-19

No ventilator for you: even after the NHS announced that ‘do not revive’ notices should not be forced on people with any disabilities at all, let alone learning disabilities, it is still happening. Is this a quiet cull?

Personally, This Writer wants to know who is still signing these orders after the NHS announced that they were forbidden and everybody should be involved in deciding the level of their own care.

It is clear that this is still not happening, and it is still people with disabilities who are being targeted for death by abandonment.

This petition is an attempt to raise the public profile of an issue that the media seem determined to ignore – so let’s do what we can to get as many people to notice it and sign it as possible.

It states:

People with learning disabilities have been given do not resuscitate orders during the second wave of the pandemic, in spite of widespread condemnation of the practice last year and an urgent investigation by the care watchdog.

Mencap said it had received reports in January from people with learning disabilities that they had been told they would not be resuscitated if they were taken ill with Covid-19.

The Care Quality Commission said in December that inappropriate Do Not Attempt Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (DNACPR) notices had caused potentially avoidable deaths last year.

DNACPRs are usually made for people who are too frail to benefit from CPR, but Mencap said some seem to have been issued for people simply because they had a learning disability. The CQC is due to publish a report on the practice within weeks.

This is absolutely disgusting and cannot be allowed to continue. We must stand against this and not allow the UK to become a fascist state

We are all one and everybody has value. This is a serious human rights issue and cannot be allowed to continue in this day and age. We must join together and show we will not stand by and allow this horrific practice to continue. We must stand firm and resist this and insist this practice ends now!

Once again, the petition is here. Please sign it and pass it on to your friends and social media contacts.

This may not affect you – now. But who knows who will be targeted next?

    Disabled people are forgotten ignored or treated like were 2nd class people at best and like Tory scum like to do waste of space because we don’t contribute. So we don’t look after kids and grandkids, work and so much other things nope yes most can’t work but contribute with community or family even not every dam life has value or were all slaves it’s that simple.

    If we start playing these people are worthy and these not games then how soon will the line be drawn with you on the wrong side? Too old, disabled, in low paid employment see it’s easy for scumbags to take your rights away!

    Now despite being told to stop this BS just like with the EVIL Liverpool care pathway murder with kindness yeah right! We have disabled people tagged with DNR’s just because there disabled FFS whatever happened to first do no harm? You know the first line in the Hippocratic oath?

    Sometimes I am beyond incensed and how little the sheep of this county care, until it effects them then it’s too damn late to care…

    Is it disabilities or difficulties? There is a difference. With difficulties the IQ is affected,typically 70 and below. Whereas, with a disability, IQ is normal, e.g. 70 and above. I assume the DNR is for adults with 70 and below, those that need help with everything.
