Killing For Profit: The Dark Side of Hospice 
– Originally added November 2020

This book compassionately deals with a difficult subject that most people don’t want to talk about, much less think about. It tells how Hospice, which was started for a laudable purpose, is today beset by greed and leaders who have lost their way.  The author, Michelle Young Doers, doesn’t mince her words and shares real life stories about the dark side of Hospice. This is a must read, whether you are an affected loved one, hospice worker or medical administrator.

The mission of the Healthcare Advocacy and Leadership Organization is to promote, protect, and advocate for the rights of the medically vulnerable through direct patient and family interactions; through community education and awareness programs; and through promotion and development of concrete *"life-affirming healthcare"* alternatives for those facing the grave consequences of healthcare rationing and unethical practices, especially those at risk of euthanasia and assisted suicide.
*"Life-affirming healthcare" is defined as medical care in which the paramount principle is the sanctity of life, which means that the life and safety of each person come first and each person receives medical care across their lifespan based on their need for care and never with an intention to hasten death, regardless of their abilities or perceived "quality of life."
