Do you support starving your loved one to death? Lam 4:3


Hospice Patients' Ron Panzer on BEL

You do realize that some people in the last stages of life can't eat in any case?

Are you opposed to a feeding tube? Is food and water sustenance or medical treatment to your mind? Lam 4:3

The hospice does not decide.

There are pro-life hospice organizations. I suggest you put your wishes in writing. If your family members do not honor life (Gen. 9:6), they may starve you to death (Lam 4:3).

As a priest I have been the visitor at the bedside a number of times. One of the first things to go when folk are dying is their appetite.

If they see fit to bring you in, :olinger: theyve got bigger problems :dizzy: than dying (1 Ti 2:5). :burnlib:

They withhold water. It's a horrible way to die.  I'm totally against it.  I've never seen such suffering in my life.

It is horrible--and painful. Why not just shoot them in the head?

…[W]hen people reach the end of their lives, they frequently stop eating.

Do they stop drinking, too and so you give them a sponge but no water?  You’re trying to make yourself feel better as you murder your loved one. Lam 4:3

So I do think that's a natural part of the inevitable end process.

There’s nothing natural about removing sustenance (Lam 4:3).

I've been told that drinking water actually causes more pain…

I’ve got a bridge to sell you (Jer 5:31). :idunno:

…[M]y feeling is that hospice is the gentle way for people to die, as long as they are given pain relief.

Which is abused, as well.  Let your loved ones know your view so that they can put these decisions into the hands of one who respects men made in God’s image (Gen. 9:6). 

I also think that there are more than a few progressives who would gladly send older people out to die on ice floes if they could.

They:  steal, kill and destroy in all they do (Eccl 10:2, Jn 10:10).    

…I've never made the decision to have another human being die under hospice or any other care.

Let your loved ones know what dead means to you (e.g. brain dead, mostly dead).  Let your loved ones know if you’ll be providing them basic sustenance to live or if when the time comes you’ll call food and water medical treatment.

As for me, I'll take the managed care by competent, experienced, trained professionals who know how to minister the right treatment to keep me from as much pain as possible.

I prefer pro-life hospice.  You prefer murderous hospice (Eccl 10:2, Jn 10:10).

Hopefully, I will also be attended by loved ones who have my best interests at heart…

You’ll encourage your loved ones to starve you death as you plan to do to them?  :thumb: What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.  

…If you post another slashing response as you did there, I will also have no further interest in discussing this with you.

Tell us what your loved ones think about your plan for them.

Bye. That's about as low as anything anyone has ever posted to me on these boards.

I hope your loved ones can sneak some Chicklets into their pockets before you get ahold of them.

…[T]ake a hike.

Wouldn’t trust you too close to a cliff, either :shocked: (Eccl 10:2, Jn 10:10). :mario:
