Death Process: Hubbardian Term

Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard taught his followers that death is a process that begins with the loss of consciousness. (See: Scientology Treats Terri Schiavo as if She is Already Dead)

In keeping with Hubbard's "death is a process" doctrine, some major players in the conspiracy to dehydrate Terri Schindler Schiavo to death employed the term, "death process."

George Felos used this term repeatedly in reference to Terri's almost two-week-long fight for her life:

At a news conference after Terri Schiavo's death today, the noted "right-to-die" attorney for her estranged husband spoke repeatedly of the severely brain-injured woman's "death process" by starvation and dehydration, describing it as "calm, peaceful and gentle."

"As time went on," Felos reiterated, "it became evident Terri was going through the final stages of the death process."

At the news confernce today, Felos emphasized that Michael Schiavo had been living in a room at the Woodside Hospice in Pinellas Park, Fla., for the past two weeks in order to be with Terri during her "death process."

"No family in the U.S. have to go through the death process for a loved one should have the added worry that courts or politicians would interfere with the death process that a loved one has chosen and almost completed," he said.

Responding to a reporters question, Felos re-emphasized that "paramount for [Michael] was Terri and her death process."

George Felos, the attorney for Schiavo's husband, Michael, said it was time to end the litigation. "Seven days into her death process, she has a right to die in peace,'' he said. "To rehydrate her and force her to begin the death process again would be cruel.''

"Terri is peaceful, she's resting comfortably. She's dying, she's in her death process," Mr Felos said.

Felos said earlier that allowing videos to be recorded inside Terri Schiavo's room during her death process would violate her privacy rights.

George Felos also employed the term "death process" in October 2003, when Terri was dehydrated for the second time:

Felos said earlier that the woman was quietly dying after the tube was removed, that her heartbeat had become irregular and her kidneys were shutting down, and that it was "simply inhumane and barbaric to interrupt her death process."

"Terri was almost a week into her death process," Felos said. "The doctors have said that introducing hydration and nutrition artificially, she may have already suffered massive organ failure and kidney damage. What this may have done is just prolonged her death process." [bold emphasis added]

Felos marked his book with this term as well:

While on the plane ride home from the retreat, Felos reads a book about “conscious dying” written by a meditation teacher who is active in hospice work, which “described the enormous potential for spiritual awakening, both for the patient and the caregiver, which sometimes is realized during the death process.” (53)

2nd Appeals Court Judge Altenbernd also used the term, "death process":

…the difficult question that faced the trial court [Judge Greer in 2000] was whether Theresa Marie Schindler Schiavo, not after a few weeks in a coma, but after 10 years in a persistent vegetative state that has robbed her of most of her cerebrum and all but the most instinctive of neurological functions, with no hope of a medical cure but with sufficient money and strength of body to live indefinitely, would choose to continue the constant nursing care and the supporting tubes in hopes that a miracle would somehow recreate her missing brain tissue, or whether she would wish to permit a natural death process to take its course and for her family and loved ones to be free to continue their lives.

Even Michael Schiavo's brother, Brian Schiavo, used the Scientology code word, "death process":

"It's very frustrating. Every minute that goes by is a minute that Terri is being starved and dehydrated to death," said her brother, Bobby Schindler, who said seeing her was like looking at "pictures of prisoners in concentration camps."

Michael Schiavo's brother, Brian Schiavo, strongly disagreed with that assessment, telling CNN that Terri Schiavo "does look a little withdrawn" but insisting she was not in pain. He added that starvation is simply "part of the death process."
