I work in a hospital and have seen human beings put down by withholding food and water as well as over drugging them. The withholding of food and water usually occurs when a person has a stroke or something and will not recover in what we consider a good quality of life. The family is then encouraged to make decisions. Over drugging usually occurs with terminal cancer patients where the family requests "comfort measures". This means that ever increasing doses of morphine and other pain meds are given until you overdose. I understand that these people are terminal or may not enjoy a quality of life that they have been used to. But!! It is not up to man or families to decide the quality of life. If a person decides that extrordinary measures should not be taken to keep them alive (CPR or life support) then that is their decision. Withholding food and water and overdosing is JUST PLAIN MURDER!!
