BREAKING: Vincent Lambert, France’s Terri Schiavo, dies after 9 days without food and water
LIFE SITE NEWS ^ | July 11, 2019 | Jeanne Smits, Paris correspondent

Posted on 07/11/2019 10:49:17 AM PDT by Morgana

July 11, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – Vincent Lambert, the disabled man a court ordered to be starved to death in a French hospital, died this morning. After nine days without food and fluids, showing a remarkable will to live despite the cruel death of thirst that doctors had prepared for him, France’s Terri Schiavo departed from this earthly life at 8:24 a.m. on Thursday, July 11. He died of heart failure induced by the malfunction of his kidneys in Reims University Hospital in the room where he had been kept under lock and key for the last six years.

Minutes after his passing, his half-nephew François, favorable to his relative being denied food and water, informed the media that Vincent had died.

Whatever his death certificate will say, Vincent Lambert did not die of natural causes, nor as a consequence of his serious handicap and brain damage. His death was deliberately brought about by a medical decision to deprive him of food and fluids that was approved by France’s highest courts and the European Court of Human Rights.

France deliberately ignored the request from the United Nations Committee for the Rights of Disabled Persons that asked for provisional measures for the end-of-life procedure to be lifted while it examined his case.

The last weeks of Vincent Lambert’s life were particularly distressful for his father Pierre, mother Viviane, and siblings David and Anne, who fought for his life over the last six years. They were given only limited time with their son and brother, alternating visits with Vincent’s wife and guardian Rachel and those family members who were favorable to his death, and only being allowed to approach him one at a time.

Their visits took place under close surveillance and they were promptly ordered to leave each time their visiting hours came to an end.

Contrary to the dispositions of the Leonetti “end-of-life” law of 2016, Vincent was given no deep sedation. During the first days of his ordeal, he cried and moaned a great deal, also showing signs of suffocation, to the horror of his family. Viviane Lambert told LifeSiteNews the procedure was “horrific.”

In a statement, lawyers Jean Paillot and Jérôme Triomphe said:

“Vincent has died, killed for reasons of State and by a doctor who has forsaken his Hippocratic oath. This cathedral of humanity that had been burning for a week under our powerless eyes has collapsed. No account has been taken of the dignity of this handicapped man, [who] was condemned because he was handicapped.

For the first dignity of all is to respect a person's life.

Part of our common humanity has left us today, because this heinous wrongdoing that is shaking the foundation of our laws and civilization affects us all.

The time has come for mourning and silent prayer. But also for meditation on this State crime.”

If Evil was a Sports team these days...they’d be multi year reigning champs. We are being over run by Evil across the globe.

After nine days of dehydration and starvation by France, 42-year-old Vincent Lambert has died. May he Rest In Peace.

And may all of us who are living—who have the health and freedom to speak—work tirelessly so that this crime against humanity is never committed again.

This is where assisted suicide comes into place. If you’re going to kill a person, make it swift and painless.

“Unnecessarily cruel.”

So were both Bush brothers and their supporters who told us, “They did everything they could”.

“This is where assisted suicide comes into place. If you’re going to kill a person, make it swift and painless.”

Even for a 17-year-old.

If someone is definitely going to die, at least inject them with sedative until they fall asleep. We even do that for the worst child murderers.

This is just barbaric.

Of course this is done for the same reason they don’t give anesthesia to the aborted- to deny they are living humans

Life support gets switched off many times without making the news.

It is only because in this case, like the Schiavo case, the family were split and went to court that we have heard about it.

"This is where assisted suicide comes into place. If you’re going to kill a person, make it swift and painless."

I cannot agree. That's like saying don't mess with random fires, let's just do an intentional controlled demolition of Notre Dame. Fast results, less mess.

From the family members who valued his life:

"This cathedral of humanity that had been burning for a week under our powerless eyes has collapsed. No account has been taken of the dignity of this handicapped man, [who] was condemned because he was handicapped.

"For the first dignity of all is to respect a person's life."

Yea, that was a very strange case where she wasn’t terminally in pain, she just didn’t want to live. How bizarre that even went through.

************************************************************

This type of cruelty would have happened right here in America had Hillary ‘Smelly Old Bag’ Clinton won the election of 2016...

Don't think I'm making fun of what happened here, it's sad, despicable and inhumane, but that is the evil that is in our World Today...

Once God is gone from a Country or a group of people, then this type of behavior is what happens...

RIP Vincent Lambert.

It should have never happened the first time to Vincent or to Terri. Next will be the mentally ill and the elderly.
