It's such a complicated and emotional issue and so I was wondering how people feel about the situation. Is she brain dead and therefore keeping her body alive is a waste of her life or is there a chance she can make a recovery and have some quality of life? Here's an article on her current condition. Brain-dead Calif teen undergoes surgery I can't seem to decide what I think honestly. On the one hand, should this girl go through puperty in a diaper? That's not a life of any sort. On the other hand, her mother sees her daughter, warm, blood pulsing through her veins and sees life. I mean what happens year after year when no brain activity is detected? Can that condition be reversed? The brain needs oxygen, to function, hers has had none for weeks and weeks, how can they regenreate her brain in such a condition? I think quality of life should be the driving force for deciding what is best in such situations and I don't see that that is going to happen for her. Thoughts anyone?
