Death by Poison Holistic “Dignity?”

by Wesley J. Smith

Assisted suicide/euthanasia are accomplished with some of the same drugs used in lethal injection executions.

I bring this up because the American Holistic Nurses Association has elected an assisted suicide assister and booster as its president.

First, what is holistic medicine? From the WEB MD.

Holistic medicine is a form of healing that considers the whole person — body, mind, spirit, and emotions — in the quest for optimal health and wellness. According to the holistic medicine philosophy, one can achieve optimal health — the primary goal of holistic medicine practice — by gaining proper balance in life.

And what is the new president’s claim to fame? She hearts assisted suicide!: From the AHNA press release:

Her passion for dignity at end of life began with her first of three end of life books, Mother Stories: through our mothers’ death and dying (2007). Subsequent titles include: End of Life: Nursing Solutions for Death with Dignity (2011) for health professionals and The Golden Room: A Practical Guide for Death with Dignity (2013) for lay persons. Carole Ann’s national and international presentations are numerous and well received.

Because poison pills are SO holistic.
