Eluana Englaro has died

Eluana Englaro, the woman at the center of the euthanasia debate in Italy, has several days after having her fluids and food withheld from her care. It is very sad that society may find it acceptable to kill someone by intentional dehydration.

To intentionally dehydrate someone to death, who is not otherwise dying, is euthanasia. The intention of the omission is to cause death and the death results from dehydration.

It is interesting that she died of dehydration so quickly. Usually it takes 10 - 14 days to die from dehydration. The question is, what did she actually die from?

The Euthanasia Prevention Coalition urges the Italian Senate to continue drafting a bill to prevent further intentional deaths by dehydration.

We, Ourselves realized that when life is over and the Soul has departed leaving only the shell of humanness then life is over. It is just a body then you see and you are blinded to the reality because of your wishes to have that full person with the vibrant Soul back. What you worship is not Life it is Selfishness.
