From Fr. Johansen: It looks like what could well be repeat of the Schiavo travesty is in the works in Georgia in the case of Mae Magouirk, 85, neither vegetative nor comatose, who is being deprived of food and water in direct contravention of her living will by persons with no standing to do so under state law. This one may be even more outrageous than the Schiavo case, folks.

UPDATE: It looks like Mae Magouirk has been moved to a nursing home and is receiving nourishment and IV fluids. Incidentally, some commentators have remarked that while she has not been receiving via a feeding tube, she has not been deprived of sustenance via mouth. I honestly don't know what to make of this question, but whatever the case it looks like she is safe now.
