For more details, see article posted last night on this same topic and well-informed comments. She is alive, breathes independently, is semi-conscious, only needs food and water. We’re not talking someone essentially “dead” whose body is kept going by machines.
Also, there is no such thing as a PVS.
Thank you, I will find that article and read the thread.
"... only needs food and water."
So, she doesn't need anything else besides a feeding tube? No turning her body or massaging her muscles? No diaper changing? No bathing and other hygiene? No personal contact?
"Also, there is no such thing as a PVS."
Call it what you want. There are bodies being kept alive that have no brain activity other than rudimentary functions like breathing. I am in no way putting this woman in that category with that statement.
