Hospital set to euthanize patient who wants to live by removing oxygen

Hospital set to euthanize patient who wants to live by removing oxygen
Life Legal Defense Foundation shared a post on Facebook today regarding a lung cancer patient, Catie, in Minnesota, whom the hospital is threatening to euthanize by removing her oxygen today — which would cause her to suffocate to death. Withdrawing Catie’s oxygen to cause her death is active euthanasia, which is illegal in Minnesota and every other state. LLDF writes:

Catie is a patient at a hospital in Minnesota. She has lung cancer and needs oxygen to remain comfortable. The hospital plans to remove Catie’s oxygen tomorrow morning, which will result in her death by suffocation.

Catie is on video saying she does not want the hospital to “pull the plug.” She relayed this to the hospital’s chaplain, who was sent to Catie’s room by the hospital to prepare her to be euthanized.


Even though the hospital has been sedating Catie, she understands what the hospital is planning to do and says she is still fighting and is “not ready” to die. Click here for more.
