Re: Hospice wants me to stop feeding my dad

The purpose of Hospice is to help a person who is near death to pass away in comfort and no pain. They are not practicing Euthanasia! Euthanasia is forbidden in every one of the 50 states. Remember that doctor in Michigan who is in jail for doing it!

Hospice has nothing to do with CAUSING death! They only help people who are already dying. Morphine is a pain killer. They do not overdose your loved one. I think you might want to talk to a counselor about your fears.

Love,

Martha
