Woman who is not terminal, and fully aware of what she is doing, makes a decision to intentionally refuse water or food in order to die in the nursing home in which she resides.
Her major stroke only affected her bad side and not the side she uses to write with, as well as hold utensils and cups.
Despite having some difficulty with swallowing, she chooses to refuse nutrition in any way, no matter how helpful it is prepared for her to be able to eat it.
Fearing chocking to death, she refuses most food, until she finally decides to refuse all food.
Highly intelligent and educated as a nurse herself, she writes about her experiences in her journals, and makes it clear to her team that she does not want any help from any device, such as a naso-gastric tube.
Her care team honors her requests, moves her to hospice in order to keep her comfortable, and she slowly passes away from severe dehydration and starvation.
Would a Catholic priest deem this as suicide? or would Catholic teachings?
Please support any arguments inf you can, with links, videos, Catholic teaching and so on.
Thank you ahead of time.
