Mother Wants to Starve Her Disabled Daughter, Says Feeding Her is “Cruel”


( – A woman in Ireland wants a judge to allow her daughter to be starved to death, claiming the young woman is suffering in a “vegetative state” and continuing to feed her is “cruel.”

Breaking News Ireland reports the woman, who is not named in reports, recently made the request to the High Court of Ireland, asking that her daughter’s food and hydration tube be removed.

The daughter is in her 20s and has been disabled for almost 10 years, according to the report. Her disabilities were caused by cardiac arrest at age 18, likely from an illegal drug overdose. CONTINUE
