Whether or not it speeds up the time the pt. has left on this Earth, IMHO doesn't equate the amount of pain and suffereing that pt. would go through without the medication. I agree with suespets in one regard when she says that she doesn't agree with giving a patient more morphine than needed to be comfortable. There is always "too much" of a good thing. Though, and I mean you no disrespect suespets, but I don't think an end life pt. who has no chance of recovery and is literaly on their last final breaths is too worried about anyone interfering with a "higher plan", if anything they probably want their suffering to end as soon as possible so the can return to whoever it is that they believe in, or if not, just to be able to finaly rest in peace.
