Hey, you gotta be wrong. Her parents said they laughed and talked and communicated. Why would anyone want to deny the poor woman the right to live?

Only those so in denial that they could confuse a persistent vegetative state with the customary dialogue that constitutes communication.

There are a few people who look at this as tragedy. When hypocricy trumps reason tragedy follows. The hypocricy here is that our putative president signed into law while Governor of Texas, legislation that permits a court to order life support withdrawn (and it was this past weekend for the child of a poor Black unmarried Texas woman). Where's the logic?

Bioethics is easy if all you read is the New Testament from the Book of John forward.
