Comment 10 by the great teapot I suppose on the plus side there is always a priest on hand ready to read the last rites before the patient is actually dead, that must be a great source of comfort. F*****g leeches

I presume from your final sentence that what preceded it was meant ironically. But in fact for some people it is a source of comfort if they or their relative receives spiritual care or the last rites before death. Even if you personally don't believe in it, why deny other people that comfort, as long as it isn't forced on those who don't want it?
