Wesley Smith freaks me out again. Just in time for the weekend. At least once a week he completely ruins my day with some “advancement” in the name of science or a study.
I was thinking about pulling some quotes out to show you how horrible it is but there are just too many to choose.
Tube supplied hydration and nutrition is deemed a medical treatment, like aspirin, surgery, or chemotherapy, and hence, can be denied or withdrawn under the law. Normal receipt of food and water, is not allowed to be withheld when it can be taken, since that isn’t medical treatment. Still, take away either form of sustenance from infants (or adults) and they will die.
A disturbing study has come out about how long it takes to starve an infant to death, I assume by withdrawing tube-supplied sustenance.
