“Media: Dying of Thirst is Excruciating Agony, Except if It’s Someone Like Terri Schiavo
by Wesley J. Smith | Washington, DC | | 8/11/14

Health writer Larry Bernstein of the Washington Post has written an excruciating column about how awful and painful it is to die by thirst. The article lamentsas any civilized person wouldthe potential mass deaths by dehydration of the Yazidi at the hand of the butchers of ISIS in Iraq.

Dying of dehydration is an awful death. From the piece:

‘I’m not about to start ranking the horrors visited on the human body this summer, from Ebola in West Africa to bombs and bullets in Gaza and Israel. But thousands of particularly excruciating deaths may soon be added to the list by the Sunni extremists of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, the terrorist group that is sweeping through parts of Iraq and establishing its own state. As this barbarism continues.’

Bernstein did some research:

I asked Jeffrey Berns, president-elect of the National Kidney Foundation and a nephrologist at the University of Pennsylvania, what these children may be going through. ‘Thirst, as you probably know, is one of the most potent drives for behavior we have. It may be the most potent we have, more than even hunger,’ he said. ‘People are going to be miserable.’

The body is about 60 percent water, and under normal conditions, he said … If it’s not replaced over time and dehydration becomes severe, cells throughout the body will begin to shrink as water moves out of them and into the blood stream, part of the body’s efforts to keep the organs in fluid. ‘All the cells will shrink,’ he said, ‘but the ones that count are the brain cells. They don’t operate normally when they’re’ shrinking (What a surprise! NOT!my addition).’

Changes in mental status will follow, including confusion and ultimately coma, he said. As the brain becomes smaller, it takes up less room in the skull and blood vessels connecting it to the inside of the cranium can pull away and rupture. Without water, blood volume will decline and all the organs will start to fail, he said. Kidney failure will soon lead to disastrous consequences and ultimately death as blood volume continues to fall and waste products that should be eliminated from the body remain.’

Yes, an awful, horrific death (Yes it is! I dont know how anyone can believe otherwise!my addition).

Except when inflicted on people like Terri Schiavo (Exactly! According to newspapers and so-called experts, she had a peaceful, almost relaxing death!my addition)? That can’t be right (That should NOT be right! But these people let agenda control over common sense and science!my addition).

This is a biological processyet conscious and unconscious disabled and elderly alike are made to die of thirst throughout the country and much of the Western world through removal of tube-supplied sustenance (Insane isnt it!my addition).

How many times have we seen advocates for removing feeding tubes from the cognitively disabled sooooothingly assure us it is a peaceful, painless way to die? From a 2005 Chicago Tribune story about the pending death of Schiavo:

‘One of the main rationales of religious advocates and lawmakers seeking to keep Terri Schiavo alive through a feeding tube has been that removing her only source of nutrition and liquid would be cruel, leading to a ‘horrible and painful death,’ in the words of one activist.

But many of the doctors and nurses who witness the consequences of removing such treatment from patients say withholding nourishment is a common—and largely painless (Largely painless! And how do they know that? Did they go through the dehydration themselves? Have they ever?—my addition)—way of letting nature take its course for ill patients. They say many people near death actually choose to have their feeding tubes removed, which typically leads to a calm, peaceful death.’

Yes, IF PEOPLE ARE ON THE VERGE OF DEATH BY CANCER or some other disease. In those cases, the death is not from thirst (Exactly!—my addition)!

But the people we are discussing here are not dying other than having their water and food taken away. That’s a huge difference. The same process described in Bernstein’s piece happens to them.

Oh, and notice what Berns said about the size of the brain after dehydration: Terri’s shrunken brain was touted as proof she could feel nothing. Remember (Indeed! And no doubt they should have known of the shrinking as medical professionals!—my addition)?

People in cognitively disabled conditions may not be able to cry out and beg for food—although I know of at least one case where that happenedbecause they don’t have the ability. But that doesn’t mean on the inside, unless given powerful drugsTerri Schiavo wasn’t given that courtesythey aren’t feeling the same pain as those poor people on the Iraq mountain (Doesnt that seem logical? GOD designed the body to warn of extreme danger through pain! Pain when one puts his hand in fire. Pain when the body goes without food and water! Warning eat something! Warning drink something! That warning system is still there!—my addition).

And now Compassion and Choices (What a name! What a LIE!—my addition) and other assisted suicide organizations push suicide by thirst and starvation (VSED). From the C & C book (Have they tried it themselves first?—my addition), ‘Voluntary Stop Eating and Drinking’:

‘Some call us because they feel overwhelmed by the symptoms of chronic and progressive illnesses that fill their days with misery and suffering. There are also those who may not be seriously ill but are simply ‘done.’ After eight or nine decades of life, they want information about ways to gently slip away in a peaceful and dignified (Dignified? How do you murder yourself with dignity?—my addition) manner.

Shameful (Yes!—my addition).

Add to that advocacy now for VSED-by-proxy that would force nursing homes to withhold oral sustenance to Alzheimer’s patients who asked to be starved and dehydrated to death in an advance directiveeven if they willingly drink water and juices and eat food.

The elderly, the profoundly disabled, babies born with Down syndrome that have intestinal blockage, etc. are not a different species. They are people. Making them die of thirst is agonizing too. Those who push these kinds of deaths as merely ‘medical ethics:’ Own it (And they WILL BE held accountable by a just GOD!—my addition)! Note: Wesley J. Smith, J.D., is a special consultant to the Center for Bioethics and Culture and a bioethics attorney who blogs at Human Exeptionalism.

Those who promote death over life be it abortion/MURDER or end of life suicide will be held accountable!

James 2: 24 (NIV)

You see that a person is considered righteous by what they do and not by faith alone.”

Impeachment IS the answer!

The horrors of abortion/MURDER are multitudinous! And the Left and the courts do not care!

The Democrat Party: The Party of death and MURDER! The Party of SIN and depravity!

Impeach Barack Hussein Obama!

Impeach Barack Hussein Obama!

Impeach Barack Hussein Obama!

Invading our border!
