    I will make a final attempt to clarify.
    I point out that the Pope refused treatment by not going to the hospital. People refuse treatment every day.

    In this case, the tube was removed because it was thought that this would have been Terri's wish. In other words, had she been able, Terri would have refused this treatment just as the Pope refused treatment by not going to the hospital.

    As for the rest of your post I have already given my viewpoints in previous posts of my own.

    You are simply wrong. The pope was in the final stages of death, and he chose to die near the people, and not in a hospital. Terri was not near death, she was murdered in a slow agonizing period of 14 days by being denied food and water.

    The Catholic Church's position is that it is never okay to remove food and water from a person. I'll repost it for you.
