The Pious Fighting death the hardest
Posted by keelynet on March 20, 2009
If people believe so much in a heaven that they hope to go to after death, then WHY RESIST it when the time comes????
“People with strong religious beliefs appear to want doctors to do everything they can to keep them alive as death approaches, a US study suggests. Researchers followed 345 patients with terminal cancer up until their deaths. Those who regularly prayed were more than three times more likely to receive intensive life-prolonging care than those who relied least on religion. The team’s report was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. It suggests that such care, including resuscitation, may make death more uncomfortable. Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine found that treatments such as ventilator support, resuscitation, having a feeding tube and non-palliative chemotherapy were associated with more psychological and physical distress. The patients’ chances of dying in their preferred place were also reduced. / (If heaven awaits, LET GO!!! – JWD)” – Source
