The last time I was in with Dr. B, I talked to him about the Terry Shrivo debate. He made a note in my chart, so I KNOW he was taking me seriously. Nobody, nobody should have to be kept alive like that for no benefit. Nobody, nobody should become a pawn in a political debate about life and death. When it comes to life and death matters, quality counts. We've reached the point where we can prolong a life indefinitely. That doesn't mean we SHOULD.
Ideally, death, like abortion, should be an INDIVIDUAL's personal decision, made thoughtfully, for their own personal reasons. Like abortions, if you don't believe in doing it, DON'T. But don't try to control the lives of others. They don't march to the beat of your drummer, nor should they.
