Physician of Pope John Paul II denied the rumors about his death through euthanasia

September 17 2007

Pope John Paul II until the last moment of his life provided the necessary medical assistance, said the Pope's personal physician Professor Renato Butstsonetti. "Dad was provided medical care until the last moment of his life. It is true that he told doctors:" Let me go to God. "But this phrase was the highest form of the last prayer of a man who suffered much and felt a strong desire to get closer to our Heavenly Father" - said the doctor.

According Butstsonetti, the phrase of John Paul II, who after his death gave rise to rumors of euthanasia is not a call to disable the patient from the devices that support life. "Whoever thinks so is mistaken," - said the doctor.

According Butstsonetti from March 30, 2005 Pope could not feed myself, so it was decided on artificial feeding, and these procedures were not interrupted until natural death, the Pope. John Paul II died April 2, transmits RIA Novosti news agency.
