  • The Hospital decided to forcibly put nasogastric tube on Elizabeth to prevent them from the accuse of Assisted Suicide.
  •  I no longer wished to live, but because of my disability, cerebral palsy, I am physically unable to commit suicide. Please Doctor, just let me starve to death, don't give me food nor hydration but please give me pain medication and hygienic care until I die
  • But Ms. Bouvia, we cannot do that! If you still insist your suicide intention through stravation and refusal for treatment, then we had no choice but to forcefuly put a nasogastric feeding tube in you to prolong your life!
  • But I have the right to refuse in getting medical treatment, after all I am just physically disabled but still mentally competent, so I could make my own decisions!
  • The case was brought to the court, Elizabeth's request to refuse medical treatment was denied by a California Superior Court. The hospital was given permission to forcefully put a nasogastric tube into her.
  • Elizabeth became patient again but then, not long after that, Elizabeth filed a lawsuit against the hospital and its employees in the Superior Court of Los Angeles, requesting that the tube be withdrawn and that all medical procedures that she did not authorize to be stopped, which the court granted.
