Dying with dignity my foot!!

By way of Hyscience I've linked to a post from a blog called Thrown Back by Fr. Johansen, who has so kindly translated an exit strategy document from Woodside Hospice ran by Hospice of the Florida Suncoast, where Terry Schiavo has been held. Thrown Back points out that this document... "lays out, in clinical detail, the procedures to be followed in bringing about Terri's death by starvation and dehydration."

Now keep in mind that throughout this whole controversy Mr. Schiavo, his attorney, and many other right to die advocates have cited that she would not suffer any pain. That dying by starvation would be the most natural and painless way to end her life. Take a look at this report and decide for yourself whether or not this is true.

One question looms in my mind, how does anyone know to an absolute certainty that a person will or will not suffer when dying? Especially in such a manner as this?
