Starving Mae Magourik

Okay. Someone explain this one to me. A woman named Mae Magourik is being starved to death in a hospice in Georgia.

She is elderly and has a non-terminal heart condition.

She has been put in a hospice despite the illegality of putting non-terminal patients in such a facility.

She has a written living will that is being ignored.

Her closest relatives all want to see her live.

A granddaughter was given a durable power of attorney over her by a local probate judge.

The granddaughter has ordered her starved to death. Today is day 6 or 7 of the starvation process.

It's all legal, apparently.

How many more of these does it take for people to admit that the rule of law is broken?

What happened to my country?!
