I was appalled that my daughter had to sit and watch a woman starved and dehydrated to death in this country. It seems by the polls that aproximately 66% of the public were on board with her husband. This is scary. Talk all you want about advanced directives. This country is getting very comfortable with killing it's weakest members. The unborn, infirm and elderly. Who does man think he is to decide the quality of life for anyone? God? I am in agreement that if someone doesn't want extrordinary measures taken to keep them alive. But food and water I don't think fall into this criteria. After discussing this with my mom in the nursing home she changed her advanced directive to specifically say she always will want food and water. This was the most barbaric, inhumane, un Christian thing I have ever seen. This is already happening to our elderly in nursing homes and hospitals all over the country. General euthanasia is comming to this nation. I think this nation has sunk to a new low. We are worse for this. I think the world will also think so. I wonder why I would be jailed if my dog were sick and I starved him??
