John Paul II Euthanasia: his last papal act
Victims - Attackers - Responsible Leaders
Pearl Harbor - 3,000 victims - 170 planes - Admiral Yamamoto
WTC & 9/11 attacks - 5,000 victims - 19 Muslims - Osama bin Laden
USA Priest Pedophilia - 12,000 victims - 5,148 priests - John Paul II + Benedict XVI + Escriba OD (the new Roman Catholic Trinity! Ripley's Believe it or Not!)
No matter how much the Vatican - Benedict XVI and Opus Dei - and their puppet writers will cook up the legacy of John Paul II the Great, it will always boil down to his JPIIPPA John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army (http://jp2army.blogspot.com/) which stink like Hell...and of course his own euthanasia which is an immoral act of "assisted suicide" in the Catholic Church (and a crime in state law).
John Paul II does not deserve to be called a "saint" in American soil and by American lips in this generation and future generations because he did absolutely NOTHING for the 12,000 American children victims of his JPIIPPA John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army made of more than 5,500 priests which is ten times more than the 500 Swiss Guards that shielded him as he committed Crimen Sollicitationis at the Vatican Temple of Sodomy
(watch video http://pope-ratz.blogspot.com/2007/07/benedict-xvi-secret-videos-he-doesnt.html).
John Paul II wanted to die at the Vatican at all cost (and not die in the hospital where he could received the medical care necessary). He got his wish of dying within the splendors of the Vatican Palace or the modern Temple of Solomon, the chamber of the Holy of Holies.
He got his stately funeral at St. Peter's Square where SNAP protestors were told to stay away.
History has been written and John Paul II wrote his own history for himself. His greatness, he believed lied in the array of writings he left behind - which the Opus Dei will use daily as the "infallible words of God". But equally or of worse magnitude was the JPIIPPA John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army mess he left behind that cost the church $2.3 billion dollars to pay up and the church and the Opus Dei do not even blink because they are filthy rich.
Judge for yourself, the last act of crime John Paul II committed - his own euthanasia or assisted suicide!
John Paul II committed the crimes of (indirect) pedophilia and (indirect) suicide. Since the crimes of the Crusade and the Inquisition, John Paul II is the worst pope in modern times for committing the worst crime against children, the least of the brethren of Christ!
At his judgement before Christ he says: "Lord, I am the most traveled pope but when did I see you sodomized by a pedophile priest under my care as the Shepherd of your flock for 26 years......?
John Paul II was a pope who did not walk his talk: "NO AUTHORITY CAN JUSTIFY EUTHANASIA" (Oh, really except by his own papal infallible power that is, duh!)
"The respect that we owe the elderly compels me once again to raise my voice against all those practices of shortening life known as euthanasia.... Euthanasia is an attack on life that no human authority can justify, because the life of an innocent person is an indispensable good". (See link below)
In 2004, John Paul II said: In this regard, I recall what I wrote in the Encyclical Evangelium Vitae, making it clear that "by euthanasia in the true and proper sense must be understood an action or omission which by its very nature and intention brings about death, with the purpose of eliminating all pain"; such an act is always "a serious violation of the law of God, since it is the deliberate and morally unacceptable killing of a human person" (n. 65). (See link below)
Those Opus Dei historians are now hurriedly re-inventing history to get their poster boy canonized speedily but...John Paul II died by his own sword and by his own words! No Josemaria androgynous tricks can un-do what John Paul II committed as crimes in his papacy - nor can the Octopus Dei continually cover them up because time will reveal all of them -- just like the JPIIPPA John Paul II pedophile Priests Army has been uncovered at the price tag of $2.3 billion!

Was John Paul II Euthanized?
Friday, Sep. 21, 2007
By Jeff Israely/ROME
In a provocative article, an Italian medical professor argues that Pope John Paul II didn't just simply slip away as his weakness and illness overtook him in April 2005. Intensive care specialist Dr. Lina Pavanelli has concluded that the ailing Pope's April 2 death was caused by what the Catholic Church itself would consider euthanasia. She bases this conclusion on her medical expertise and her own observations of the ailing pontiff on television, as well as press reports and a subsequent book by John Paul's personal physician. The failure to insert a feeding tube into the patient until just a few days before he died accelerated John Paul's death, Pavanelli concludes. Moreover, Pavanelli says she believes that the Pope's doctors dutifully explained the situation to him, and thus she surmises that it was the pontiff himself who likely refused the feeding tube after he'd been twice rushed to the hospital in February and March. Catholics are enjoined to pursue all means to prolong life.
The article, entitled "The Sweet Death of Karol Wojtyla" (using the Pope's birth name) appears in the latest edition of Micromega, a highbrow Italian bi-monthly that has frequently criticized the Vatican's stance on bioethics. The author, who heads the anesthesiology and intensive care therapy school at the University of Ferrara, says she decided to revisit the events around John Paul's death after the Vatican took a hard line in a controversy last year in Italy over euthanasia. Indeed her accusations are grave, questioning the Catholic Church's strictly traditional stances on medical ethics, including the dictum from John Paul's own 1995 encyclical Evangelium Vitae to use all modern means possible to avoid death.
Recalling the Vatican's medical reports during John Paul's last days, Pavanelli writes: "I'm surprised that I myself failed to critically examine the information. I let my perceptions conform to the hope of recovery and the official version, without confronting the clinical signs that I was seeing." While the Vatican had expressed most of its concern about breathing difficulty, which was alleviated with a tracheotomy, Pavanelli says a readily apparent loss of weight, and an apparent difficulty to swallow, was not being addressed. "The patient had died for reasons that were clearly not mentioned. Of all the problems of the complicated clinical picture of the patient, the acute respiratory insufficiency was not the principal threat to the life of the patient. The Pope was dying from another consequence of the effects on the [throat] muscles from his Parkinson's Disease... not treated: the incapacity to swallow."
The Vatican quickly fired back this week. John Paul's longtime doctor Renato Buzzonetti, who now monitors Pope Benedict XVI, said that doctors and John Paul himself all acted to stave off death. "His treatment was never interrupted," Buzzonetti told the Rome daily La Repubblica. "Anyone who says otherwise is mistaken." He added that a permanent nasal feeding tube was inserted three days before the Pope's death when he could no longer sufficiently ingest food or liquids. Buzzonetti did not specifically respond to Pavanelli's claim that John Paul needed a tube weeks, not days, before he eventually died.
The polemics come just as the Vatican again weighed in on euthanasia. The Church's doctrinal office released a one-page document, approved by Benedict, that denounced the cutting off of food and water to patients in a vegetative state even if they would never regain consciousness. This reaffirmed John Paul's stance in 2004 during the battle over ending artificial feeding for the severely brain-damaged Terri Schiavo, who was later taken off her feeding tube and died.
"The administration of food and water even by artificial means is, in principle, an ordinary means of preserving life," said the Vatican ruling, which came in response to questions from the U.S. Catholic Bishops Conference about what constitutes ordinary and extraordinary life support.
The issue of euthanasia and the Church heated up in Italy last year after a man named Piergiorgio Welby, who'd been on life support for nine years from the effects of muscular dystrophy, asked for the right to die. Eventually, the life support was suspended and he died. But when his wife, a practicing Catholic, asked for a funeral in Church, the Vatican refused. Pavanelli says that this episode prompted her to revisit John Paul's death.
The medical aspects of the Pope's final days are clearly difficult to verify from afar, and the Vatican is convinced that the actions of the both its doctors and its Pope were in absolute good faith. Of course, medical opinions can often vary. So too can those on bioethics.
Vatican rejects charges on John Paul II

A doctor alleged Wednesday that Pope John Paul II violated Catholic teaching against euthanasia by refusing medical care that would have kept him alive longer — a charge immediately dismissed by Vatican officials.
In an article in the Italian journal Micromega, Dr. Lina Pavanelli, an anaesthesiologist, questioned why John Paul was only outfitted with a nasal feeding tube on March 30, 2005, three days before he died. She said he clearly was in need of artificial nutrition well before then.
John Paul was rushed to Rome's Gemelli Polyclinic hospital two times in February 2005 with breathing crises related to his Parkinson's disease; he was released for the last time March 13. He died in his Vatican apartment on April 2, from what the Vatican said was septic shock and cardiocirculatory collapse.
The Vatican announced March 30 that John Paul had been outfitted with a nasal feeding straw to improve his nutrition so he could recover strength.
However, Vatican officials said Wednesday that the tube had actually been inserted well before March 30 but that the procedure was only announced on that date. They disclosed the information in response to Pavanelli's charges, which they said weren't serious because she had no access to the medical records and based her accusations only on press releases and news reports.
At a news conference Wednesday, Pavanelli acknowledged she didn't have access to John Paul's medical records and acknowledged the likelihood that he may have been outfitted sooner than March 30 with a nasal feeding tube.
But she maintained her core argument that he was not given adequate nutrition soon enough, saying he actually should have been given a stomach feeding tube since he needed longer-term artificial nutrition. She says she assumes John Paul's doctors offered him that option, but that he must have refused the treatment since he wasn't given it.
Catholic teaching holds that it is morally wrong to refuse "proportionate" or ordinary care, which includes water and feeding tubes; refusing such care amounts to euthanasia.
"He was fed neither at the right time, nor in the right way for the correct amount of time," Pavanelli said. That created a situation in which the pope was too weak to fend off the urinary tract infection that led to the septic shock that ultimately killed him, she charged.
In the article, Pavanelli concludes that "when the patient knowingly refuses a lifesaving therapy, his action together with the remissive or ommissive behavior of doctors, must be considered euthanasia, or more precisely, assisted suicide."
The Vatican recently repeated its position on euthanasia and feeding tubes. A document issued Sept. 14 from the Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith reaffirmed that it considers the removal of feeding tubes from people in vegetative states to be an immoral act.
The Vatican distinguishes between feeding tubes, which it considers proportionate care, and "aggressive medical treatment" which can be disproportionate to any expected results or pose an excessive burden on the patient.
"In such situations, when death is clearly imminent an inevitable, one can in conscience refuse forms of treatment that would only secure a precarious and burdensome prolongation of life, so long as the normal care due to the sick person in similar cases is not interrupted," according to John Paul's 1995 encyclical "Evangelium Vitae."
Pavanelli appeared at a news conference to defend her claims alongside the widow of Piergiorgio Welby, who has been at the center of a right-to-die campaign in this predominantly Roman Catholic country.
Welby, a paralyzed writer who suffered from muscular dystrophy, died in December after a doctor carried out his wish and disconnected his respirator.
Was John Paul II euthanased?
The deaths of popes offer rich pickings for scandal-mongers and conspiracy theorists. David Yallop sold 6 million copies of In God's Name, which argued that John Paul I was murdered in 1979 by corrupt officials who feared exposure of their shady deals, changes in Catholic teachings on contraception, cosying up to the Soviets, and so forth.
Now it is John Paul II's turn. Time magazine reports that he may have been euthanased in 2005. It bases these "grave accusations" on an article in the high-brow magazine Micromega, an offshoot of the left-wing Italian newspaper Repubblica. In "The Sweet Death of Karol Wojtyla", an anaesthetist at the University of Ferrara, Lina Pavanelli, says that the Pope refused to have a feeding tube until a few days before his death and this ultimately killed him. Time journalist Jeff Israely suggests that if Dr Pavanelli's surmises are true, the Pope or his minders may have been guilty of euthanasia.
Dr Renato Buzzonetti, doctor to both John Paul II and his successor, waved away the sensational allegations. "His treatment was never interrupted. Anyone who says otherwise is mistaken". He said that a feeding tube was inserted three days before the Pope's death when he could finally no longer ingest food or liquids.
This story has to be placed in its context, which is the malarial swamp of Italian politics. Bioethical issues like euthanasia, stem cell research and abortion are hot button issues in Italy, where Catholics have been bitterly resisting progressive trends. Micromega is known for being critical of Catholic bioethics and Dr Pavanelli's speculations leave the Vatican looking mendacious and hypocritical. The article may have been timed to coincide with a Vatican reaffirmation of the need to provide food and water even to patients who will never regain consciousness. ~
NO AUTHORITY CAN JUSTIFY EUTHANASIA
Pope John Paul II
October 31, 1998
Life of the elderly must be respected, Holy Father says in address to international conference
"The respect that we owe the elderly compels me once again to raise my voice against all those practices of shortening life known as euthanasia.... Euthanasia is an attack on life that no human authority can justify, because the life of an innocent person is an indispensable good", the Holy Father said on Saturday, 31 October, to those attending an international conference on the elderly sponsored by the Pontifical Council for Pastoral Assistance to Health-Care Workers. The Pope spoke of respect for the elderly and encouraged families to benefit from the wealth of experience that their older members have to offer. Here is a translation of his address, which was given in Italian. (See Vatican website)
The filthy rich Opus Dei - see their world empire in http://www.odan.org/
Opus Dei financier is found dismembered under bridge
By John Phillips in Rome
Published: 22 July 2006
The badly beaten and mutilated corpse of Gianmario Roveraro, one of Italy's reputedly most pious financiers, was discovered "cut to pieces" under a motorway overpass near Parma yesterday, some two weeks after he was kidnapped while returning home from a meeting of the conservative Roman Catholic group Opus Dei.
Three people were arrested on suspicion of the kidnapping and macabre murder of Mr Roveraro, a banker who had been questioned by investigators in connection with the spectacular €14bn (£9.5bn) collapse of the Parmalat food empire in 2003.
He was a founder of Akros Finanziaria, a financial services group, and had helped Parmalat list its stock on the market a decade ago.
The killing recalled the murder of Roberto Calvi, the Italian financier known as "God's Banker" for his links to the Vatican, who was found hanged fromBlackfriars Bridge in London in 1982.
Police suspect Mr Roveraro's kidnapping and murder was related to a business dispute over a €500,000 property deal.
The purportedly devout Mr Roveraro vanished on 5 July on his way from attending an evening meeting of the local Milan branch of Opus Dei, of which he, along with many other top-level Italian financiers, was a member.
Despite involvement of some its members in a series of financial scandals, Opus Dei enjoyed favour under the late Pope John Paul II, who elevated it to the privileged status of a "personal prelature" within the Church and controversially gave its Spanish founder, Josemaria Escriva, a "fast track" beatification and then canonisation as a saint.
The three arrested men were identified as Emilio Toscani, 43, from Collechio, a storekeeper; Marco Baldi, 50, a native of Bologna; and Mr Botteri, 43, a financial consultant from Parma.
Mr Botteri was quoted as saying he couldn't recall any more about the murder. Police suspect Mr Roveraro may have been killed several days ago.
Mr Toscani led police to the financier's body, cut up into several parts and decomposing in the summer heat, yesterday morning, police sources said.
Since 5 July, Mr Roveraro made several telephone calls within 48 hours, to his wife Silvana and to his business assistants who he asked to sell €1m of shares in a family company. Carabinieri paramilitary police traced the alleged gang by following the signature of public telephone cards used to make calls during ransom negotiations, the sources said. Mr Roveraro was one of 64 people under investigation in the Parmalat affair and prosecutors had asked for him to be indicted on charges of belonging to a criminal organisation conspiring in fraudulent bankruptcy.
He had been on the board of Parmalat's finance subsidiary from 1990 to 1998.
A spokesman for Opus Dei said: "We want to express our closeness to the upset family. This death has hit Opus Dei very hard.
"Gianmario is not suffering any more now and is receiving the reward for what he was - an intelligent, gentle, noble and generous person."
