    Wayne would live or die When he finally stabilized it took years of work for Wayne to return to a normal life He had a total of 29 surgeries and spent more than two years in the hospital For Wayne there was a period of adjustment although he had already begun to prepare because he had been living in a war zone and knew the potential for death had been real The biggest issue for Wayne was fear and uncertainty about the future He was fearful of how others would react to his disability While he knew he was the same person strangers had different perceptions of him Everyone with disabilities has bad experiences out in public says Wayne Fortunately for Wayne he has had solid support from friends and family None of them remotely thought that he would be better off dead Pain and Suffering Wayne s story encompasses many issues including pain Wayne lost his legs to infection not to the initial blast He also suffered many other injuries which he described as massive wounds causing massive pain long term pain searing pain day after day week after week month after month But he insists I never wanted to die Pain control wasn t nearly as sophisticated in 1969 as it is today For instance there were no morphine pumps Wayne received no more than one shot of morphine every four hours to prevent addiction Now Wayne has to deal with phantom pain a phenomenon which can cause excruciating pain perceived to be in the missing limb In the 1990 s however Wayne says that 98 percent of his pain can be dealt with by taking a combination of medication to prevent it For those other rare occasions a physician can prescribe something stronger Despite enduring such incredible

  • Euthanasia Robs Dying of Opportunities for Reconciliation, Family Connections, Says Leading Ethics Professor
    want to be a burden The final six months of life frequently see a significant improvement in reconciliation in relationships with family and friends in the passing on of wisdom and a personal legacy to family and in a great investment in the relationship with God Fr Spitzer said The assumption that terminally ill patients have a low quality of life is simply not accurate he said when a narrow definition of life quality based on physical health and freedom of movement is expanded to include a much greater emphasis on relationships He pointed out that while euthanasia advocates frequently rely on the argument of inadequate pain treatment to promote legal assisted suicide and euthanasia in fact research has shown that 96 percent of terminal pain can be adequately controlled through advances in morphine use without significant loss of consciousness According to a report by the World Health Organization 97 percent of requests for assisted suicide were withdrawn after the patients received adequate pain management and treatment for temporary depression Legal euthanasia and assisted suicide will create a culture of suicide Fr Spitzer warned as life value is measured more and more in terms of physical health and independence Young

  • Serious Illness and Assisted Suicide: Magaly Llaguno's Story
    that anyone who is offered this quick cheap and easy solution will begin to feel like a heavy burden on his or her loved ones and on society They might even feel compelled or obligated to choose suicide Since we need a positive attitude for our inmune system to work properly and for our body in general to heal or at least improve its health a negative pro death attitude in those around us will do nothing but harm us further What we seriously ill and or terminal patients need is real not phony compassion which is what the assisted suicide and euthanasia promoters are offering us We need a sympathetic ear and a kind word once in a while but most of all we need the compassionate love of those around us Where there is no family or friends to provide that love it ultimately has to come from the medical profession Doctors and nurses are supposed to help heal the sick not do away with them Otherwise we ll go back to the ruthless ancient pagan times when patients did not know whether the doctor came to heal them or kill them by euthanasia We also need for

  • Starving or Dehydrating People Who Are Not Terminally Ill - Euthanasia Article
    PUBLIC OUTCRY ABOUT THIS Because such deaths occur quietly within the confines of hospitals and nursing homes often they can be kept from public view Most euthanasia victims are old or very ill so their deaths might be attributed to a cause other than the denial of care that really killed them Further it is often relatives of the patient who are requesting that care be withheld In one of the New Jersey cases mentioned above the court held that decisions to withhold life sustaining care may be made not only by close family members but also by a number of third parties and that such decisions need not be reviewed by the judicial system if there is no disagreement between decision makers and medical staff The court went so far as to rule that a nursing home may not refuse to participate in the fatal withdrawal of food and water from an incompetent patient BUT IS A DOCTOR OBLIGATED TO USE EXTRAORDINARY OR HEROIC MEANS TO SAVE EVERY LIFE EVEN WHEN THE PATIENT IS HOPELESSLY ILL No Extraordinary or heroic treatment need not be used when the chance for recovery is poor and medical intervention would serve only to prolong the dying process But to deny customary and reasonable care or to deliberately starve or dehydrate someone because he or she is very old or very ill should not be permitted Most of the cases coming before the courts do not involve withholding heroic measures from imminently dying people but rather they seek approval for denying basic care such as administration of food and water to people who are not elderly or terminally ill but who are permanently incapacitated These people could be expected to live indefinitely though in an impaired if they were given food and water and
