Just saw this on Oprah...I don't understand why the husband had the feeding tube removed but either way I still disagree with the family's decision. And yes there are rare occasions as were shown on the Montel Williams Show where some will come back alive, I still don't agree with keeping someone alive brain-damaged for that long.
Raggie's Mom, great point, one that I never understood either, I think with abortion topics, the views are tended towards keeping the baby alive even though states have agreed to it being allowed (I've seen so many teens get this over and over instead of closing their legs
) which is the same hope that they want with brain-damaged, life-support people, they want to keep them alive. I just don't understand how anyone can agonize themselves over keeping someone alive for so long like that, it must be very painful for both the patient and the loved ones.
