I read a very disturbing story that I wanted to share with the readers of this blog.  I’ve always had a problem with placing the fate of my life in a doctor’s hands.  This story only justified my concerns.  A Brazilian doctor named Virginia Soares de Souza has been accused of prematurely killing 300 patients at a hospital in Brazil.  She apparently killed these patients in order to make room for other incoming patients.  She must really take her role as a Doctor very seriously… NOT!  Yahoo News reports that “she gave muscle-relaxing drugs to patients before reducing their oxygen supply, causing them to asphyxiate.”

She has been charged with seven counts of aggravated first-degree murder and accused of killing close to 300 patients.  According to several sources, her unsettling practice may have been going on for years.

The doctors, nurses and a physiotherapists who followed her orders have also been charged with murder, according to ABA Journal.

Of course, De Souza denies these charges against her, arguing that she was justified in her actions.

I guess only time will tell.

What are your thoughts on this matter?  Do you think her actions were justified?
