More on Mae Mae Magouirk : Here we go again.......

Topics: News

Here we go again, another day, another life, another murder at the hands of the (in)justice system. Yet another case of murder by judicial fiat at yet another hospice - the hospice industry's agenda of euthanasia marches on and on! Here's a nice quick synopsis of the plight of Mae Magouirk who is being killed by her granddaughter, Beth (Michael Schiavo) Gaddy, at the order of Probate Court Judge Donald (George Greer)W. Boyd, at the Lagrange (Woodside death camp)hospice.

The first case is always the hardest. But then, it becomes easier.

A lot of people were were mortified about the dehydration death of Terri Schiavo. We all thought it would be a while before a similar situation would arise.

Well, think again.

It's happening RIGHT NOW in Georgia, except in a more egregious way. Mae Magouirk, an 81-year old grandmother, is not terminally ill, comatose or in a vegetative state, but she is being starved to death in a hospice. Another case of not having a "living will"? NO, wrong again. She has a living will that specifies that she not be denied food or water unless she were in a coma or vegetative state.

Mrs. Magouirk was admitted to the hospital with an aortic dissection, which was contained. Her granddaughter, Beth Gaddy, asked that she be placed in hospice without hydration or food. Gaddy was quoted as saying, "Grandmama is old and I think it is time she went home to Jesus."

Gaddy, claimed to have a medical power of attorney, but only had a financial power of attorney. Once the hospice became aware of the situation, it prepared to have the feeding tube inserted. But before they could have Magouirk transported to a hospital, Gaddy obtained emergency gardianship over her grandmother from Probate Court Judge Donald W. Boyd.

There are closer living relatives, two siblings, that want to take care of Magouirk, but Gaddy will not consent.

If you thought a medical power of attorney would protect you, it seems that it is not worth the paper it's written on in some Probate Courts. It looks like low grade euthanasia via denial of food and water to non-terminal patients, regardless of wishes, is becoming "normal".

Welcome, to this brave new world..........

Is it just me, or does it seems like hospices are becoming the new extermination camps for the disabled and the elderly?
