I dont have to play games Gtown, I have the intelligence to understand that the FACT is that removing ANH from a patient does NOT make them starve to death.
When you remove food and /or water from a person long enough, they die. It's pretty simple, but you like to blurr the lines.

The same would happen to a new born babe, if you were concerned about such.

Terrie layed there untill she died from lack of water /food.

If you were to do a dog the same way, you would be facing charges, yet that's the world we live in, thanks to folks who think like you, and like I used to, BEFORE I met God, and He saved my soul.

Suffering REQUIRES consciousness, idiot. Why do you think they administer anesthetics for surgery? Unless you can use a topical block for specific areas, you have to put the patient under. When the patient has no consciousness, there is no pain.
<quoted text>
That is not exactly true in general. They routinely test for pain stimulus in coma. Etc.
it is one sign of progress or deterioration ..bottom of foot with sharp object..sternum with pressure..etc sometimes they react..

Also look for reaction of pupils.. sometimes not..No idea with TS

Ummm...I presume the pets are already deceased? I can't condone committing suttee with the pets.
Cremation takes time, you may need to hunt down the extended dance mix of "burn baby burn". There's also "we didn't start the fire", "hot stuff", "hot child in the city", and "light my fire".
<quoted text>
For my money, they can play all of the above, plus "Burnin' for You", "Hot-Hot-Hot", "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes", and of course, "Ring of Fire" by the illustrious and inimitable Mr. Johnny Cash....

Patients that have ANH removed do not die of starvation. Period. Scientific fact. Deal with it idiot.
Terrie layed there untill she died from lack of water /food.
Wrong moron. Read the autopsy that's been posted numerous times. She died as her systems shut down, and from dehydration. A peaceful death, as many of us who've sat with loved ones who died the same way can attest.
If you were to do a dog the same way, you would be facing charges
If my dog was brain dead as Terri Schiavo was, I'd have it PUT down peacefully, something we cannot offer our loved ones.

Fk your soul, that's as meaningless as you are you stupid shit.

My belief system includes the idea that every living entity has a soul - most especially dogs.

If you really believe that souls your Creator crafted in his own image, need to be 'saved', I really believe that's the biggest flaw in your reasoning about everything else...

Better way to put it..we believe..the person on his oen does nothing to merit heaven. We are all sinful to one degree or another.
THE GIFT OF SALVATION is there.. done over atoned.paid for sin.......but we believe it has to be accepted..

Btw way it can be as simple as s person calling out yo God on his deathbed..Or s life in which salvation hopefully shines through with good works..Buy it is the FAITH that saved..NOT THE WORKS..
SOME RELIGIONS teach it differently....but this is how most Christians believe. THE RCC teaches it a bit differently but basically the same message. NO SIN IS TOO GREAT!!!

No, I said no such thing. I said that you, specifically and singularly, have an aversion to education. You are a blatant liar.

So you truly believe people AND animals have a soul???
Yet pitbulls that kill other animals go to the same doggy heaven as the little cute house pups?

Hitler, and many other evil men go to the same place as folks who never harmed a fly?

If you truly believe we have a soul "and we do " why not seek the God of that soul, for what He says will happen.

Heaven allows no sinners, so we have a problem if we've ever sinned once.

Only made rightous, by the blood of the Lamb -Christ Jesus.

There may come a day, like terrie s, where I don't know Jesus as Lord and Savior, let alone my own name, BUT HE IS FAITHFUL, AND HE REMEMBERS 'HIS " COVENANT HE MADE WITH THE FATHER AND ME.

My hope is built on NOTHING LESS, then Jesus Christ, and His Rightousness.

What is it your jesus said? When you marry, you leave your parents and cleave to your spouse? Legal marriag spells it out--the spouse becomes the primary kin and makes medical decisions when they cannot. Her parents were delusional concerning her condition.
Medically speaking, there is no difference between a respirator and a feeding tube--both are extraordinary measures for prolonging ife. When a dx of brain death (or PVS) is made, the guardian has every right to remove such measures.
You have no idea what he was thinking; you make assumptions based on your distaste for the situation. Having been through it, I can tell you it's not what you seem to think. Keep in mind that she would have slipped away YEARS earlier without the parents' legal maneuvering without ANY positive change in her condition.

Because they aren't brain-dead. There's a medical definition of brain-death/irreversible coma/PVS that doesn't apply to dementia. Not to mention that most patients with demenia feed themselves, with or without assistance.
<quoted text>
I think I've already shared my Dad's story: After a long, gentle decline, Alzheimer's finally took away his ability to swallow and a MRSA infection dealt the final blow. He had a very clear advance directive. Yes, he died of dehydration, finally. His mind was gone; his heart chugged on for several days until it didn't. His was a natural death. Too many people misuse modern medicine to keep their loved ones bodies alive, just because they can. I see this futility a lot. It's pathetic and heartbreaking.

I noticed he claimed his wife was "simple".
I wonder if she would be "simple" enough to be offended at being called "simple".
Of course, one would HAVE to be "simple" to put up with such stupidity as he shows.
He is an ass.

The End.

You DO understand that she hadn't "eaten" in over a decade, right?
You seem to think that she was munching down on cheezeburgers and chicken and it was being held back from you. You are dumber than dirt.
I must admit its funny when you and your kind continue to mouth off when you CLEARLY have ZERO idea what the hell you're talking about.
I deal with families who try to make medical orders for the patient that are detrimental to the patient. This type of family brings medicine and food from outside that the patient shouldn't have, insists that the patient is experiencing symptoms that the patient denies, etc. I know this usually comes from place of love, but it is not useful.

Schiavo finally was allowed a natural death. She was brain dead, and would have died much earlier, naturally, if they hadn't kept her alive using unnatural methods. She wasn't killed. You don't know what you are talking about.

No, she died of dehydration. The body can survive for weeks without food. Again, you don't know what you are talking about.
