I feel that if a person is able to leave their body without the aid of drugs it should be that way. This is important.

This is not ok.
Starvation is a HORRIBLE way to go out!
Just for kicks, I say that if this is allowed, the mother should stop being fed for the same amount of time. If she gives in and decides she wants food, then the child should be fed as well.
Would be interesting to see how long she lasted.
Brompton cocktail, sometimes called a Brompton mixture, or, incorrectly, Brompton's cocktail, is an elixir meant for use as a pain suppressant, and dosed for prophylaxis. Made from morphine or diacetylmorphine (heroin), coc aine, highly-pure ethyl alcohol (some recipes specify gin), and sometimes with chlorpromazine (Thorazine) to counteract nausea, it was given to terminally-ill individuals (especially cancer patients) to relieve pain and promote sociability near death. A common formulation included "a variable amount of morphine, 10 mg of coc aine, 2.5 mL of 98% ethyl alcohol, 5 mL of syrup BP and a variable amount of chloroform water."1
The Brompton cocktail is named after the Royal Brompton Hospital in London, England, where it was invented in the late 1920s for patients with tuberculosis. While its use is rare in the 21st century, it is not unheard of. It was far more common in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The original idea for an oral mixture of morphine and coc aine helping patients in agony with advanced disease is credited to surgeon Dr Herbert Snow in 1896.
