No, you're missing the question. Does her father claim that she indicated that she would not want to live in a vegetative state? I'm not looking for your opinion of her condition relative to any other person's condition.
"Yes, but the only doctors who subscribe this diagnosis are the ones who want to kill the patient."
Every doctor that makes that determination does not want a patient to die.
"I'm not sure if there are other relatives, but there are plenty in the pro-life movement who are prepared to care for her."
You are willing to take this woman into your home and care for her every need? Or, are you prepared to pay for her care for the rest of her life somewhere other than your home? Or, are you prepared to sit with and care for her in a nursing home setting? Is there a list of people willing to do these things for folks that they don't even know? If you don't want to pay, do you contend that the state should?
You know, wagglebee, it gets really old to get your attitude every time I ask a question on one of these threads. I didn't state any particular position on the matter, I simply asked a few specific questions. I was not disrespectful to the subject or toward the woman in the article. There may be others like me that are trying to make determinations and have questions. Responding in the tone that you do really does nothing to further your cause. It simply drives people away. Perhaps that is what you want.
If you want nothing but comments in agreement with your opinions on the subject, it would be really nice if you would just let that be known up front.

Also, there is no such thing as a PVS.
