Looking for confirmation elsewhere...

... but it's believable and certainly disturbing. It boils down to a granddaughter manipulating Granny into a hospice during a medical crisis, then yanking Granny's feeding tube. This although Granny had an advance directive saying she WANTED a feeding tube.

In a situation recalling the recent death of Terri Schiavo in Florida, an 81-year-old widow, denied nourishment and fluids for nearly two weeks, is clinging to life in a hospice in LaGrange, Ga., while her immediate family fights desperately to save her life before she dies of starvation and dehydration.

Mae Magouirk was neither terminally ill, comatose nor in a "vegetative state," when Hospice-LaGrange accepted her as a patient about two weeks ago upon the request of her granddaughter, Beth Gaddy, 36, an elementary school teacher.

Of course we can expect more of this. Evil is never the servant, always the master. You make a deal with the devil at great peril.
