Hospital Refuses to Remove Eluana Englaro's Feeding Tube After Court Ruling

The hospital where Eluana Englaro had received medical care and treatment before an Italian court ruled that her father could take her life refuses to pull her feeding tube. No doctor and none of the staff at the hospital in Lecco have agreed to kill the woman who is considered Italy's version of Terri Schiavo.
...the Italian nuns at the Blessed Luigi Talamoni clinic who are caring for her refuse to comply with the court ruling.
Vladimiro Kosic, head of health for Friuli-Venezia Giulia, told the Times, "Our hospitals are places of life, not death."

Cio laudato Gesu Cristo!
