The whole world watched as 41-year-old Terri Schiavo was slowly starved and dehydrated to death by order of a judicial system that defied Congress, the president and – many believe – the law itself.
But the Terri Schiavo story was not unique, as a stunning new edition of WND’s monthly Whistleblower magazine – titled “WHO LIVES, WHO DIES?” – makes frighteningly clear. In fact, Terri’s case is only the tip of the iceberg.
Take the case of Marjorie Nighbert, for example. Although she had asked for nothing more than a “little something to eat” and a drink of water, a Florida judge ruled she was not “competent” to make such a request for food, and the 83-year-old stroke victim was starved and dehydrated to death in a nursing home with full agreement of her family.
And yet, for every high-profile case involving the courts, many other elderly and disabled Americans are being quietly “helped along” toward death before their time, behind closed doors, without public knowledge. In hospices and nursing homes across the nation, citizens are being starved and dehydrated by removal of a feeding tube, or by refusal to insert a feeding tube when one is needed, or by administration of overly high doses of morphine. It’s a murky legal and ethical area where “quality of life” and economic considerations increasingly are trumping sanctity of life as society’s highest value – ending in premature death for too many of the nation’s elderly and disabled citizens.
This edition of Whistleblower will show how, despite America’s many highly ethical hospice workers and nurses dedicated to life, the end-of-life industry has also been invaded by “right-to-die” activists.
“WHO LIVES, WHO DIES?” exposes the perverse state of “medical ethics” – where some of the top ethicists espouse some of the most unethical views imaginable. It documents the dangers of “advance directives” or “living wills.” And it exposes the scandalous classification of food and water provided by a feeding tube as “medical treatment” – thereby justifying the denial of basic sustenance to patients who had intended to forego “extraordinary measures” like heart-lung machines, but not be denied food.
Highlights of “WHO LIVES, WHO DIES?” include:
“Euthanasia – in all its forms – has been off the American public’s radar for far too long,” said WND Managing Editor David Kupelian. “Terri Schiavo got people’s attention, but most still don’t realize how pervasive this ‘culture of death’ has really become – not in the Netherlands, but right her in the U.S. This special edition of Whistleblower finally brings some much-needed light to this life-and-death issue.”
