She's been in persistent vegetable state since the early 90's. She's basically dead, but her body is still here and (slightly) working.Screwedupmonkey said:the husband is a ****ing douche, hes been married to another woman, with to children, i doubt he even cared very much about her. Parnets should have had guirdianship.
She was not coming out. Almost all her brain matter is mush.vpraidersfan1 said:YA, THATS SAD. she's in the vegatative, but she was coming out. her husband was being a dick, and won't let her live. He's also been living with another woman for the whole time.
How sad, supreme court. What a dousche. i heard someone offered him like a million dollar's to give guardianship to the parent's but he refused saying "it was her wish".
It was HIS choice. He still had legal rights over her, and tried to remove the feeding tube in 2001. But alas, his in-laws couldn't/can't handle the truth.Screwedupmonkey said:im saying i really dont think it should have been his choice, he moved on with hhis life, and should have left the desicion to the parents, just my opinion

Never heard that did you? Also, not only was that her life was lost, but lack of nutrients aka starvation is one of the most painful death's. I don't know if she felt any pain, but i still think it's wrong what happened.
No, see we have something called 'medical science'. We can tell if someone was 'put' into persistent vegetative state. So, you lose.txaggie08 said:Ima set morality aside here and talk about the legal precident im worried about this setting. i have an opinion on the ethics, but its not that that scares me.
Does anyone else se this as a new way for husbands to kill wives? im not saying he did anything to kill her. im talking about the fact that with enough planning, someone could easily get away with murder. there are many ways to put someone into a vegetative state that are nearly undetectable. what are we going to do when this comes up? there going to say" you cant prove i did a thing, and i have legal rights". its just a bit of a disturbing precident. It also angers me we have apparently reverted back to english common law, were a woman is no longer a daughter once she is married, but a wife. thats not how its supposed to work...
Well, we're not legally allowed to put a slug in their heads . Also, the situation was a tad different. Read the posts here, or better yet, watch the news.txaggie08 said:Just kind of as an aside. while i dont think it was wrong to "pull the plug"so to speak, the way they did it was a little disgusting. i mean, we prosecute people as war criminals for this kind of crap
