My understanding is that doctors will only continue with life support if there is hope of a return to "normal life". Where there is not, then life support is switched off.
If that's the case, it's pretty difficult for anyone else to say otherwise IMO
No that isnt the case, last week UK was discussing whether to let real (less than 24 wks) premature babies live, one doctor was arguing that "it costs too much", these sort of people have no respect for human life, the dow jones is more sacred.
Doctors can not decide what is "normal" life, I work with learning difficulties and Autism, they view "normal" life differently to what we do.
and as for those inflicted with what we do not recognise as "normal life", they keep a lot of us in work and are as essential to our ecomony as we are. Cases similar the child mentioned above are keeping nurses, carers and doctors in a job. The babies that may return to "normal life" but whom they want to kill are actually paying their mortgage.
