So to your opinion it should have been more humane to let her live for another ten or fifteen years of knowing nothing???? In other words, we should have let her live some more years so whenever we saw her, we would burst into tears because there was nothing much to help???? Or we should have let her live for some more years although there might be a chance that it was her wish to move on or as Christian people say, go to God???
A lot people are afraid of dying because it's the end of everything. However, some people don't. If I had to choose, I would choose to die when I was in her state. Even when I died, I knew my beloved ones would still miss me, but they could move on with their daily lives without weeping for me when they saw me. And they wouldn't have to spend money on me days and days when I knew absolutely nothing to respond back. The money they'd saved to help me could be for charities. That way I knew my death was worth. Well, this is just me. I was born and raised in a different culture, a culture which we think even when we have to die, we should die as a worthy person and not just one of the dregs of the society.
Anyway, I think the lastest news of hers is they're trying to find out if her husband had had abused her before she went into vegetative state or there were some other causes. The examination is way too late now, but whatever. If they feel it can help them to feel better with this bitter issue, good luck with that.

The only persons (regardless of relationship) that should be able to make these sorts of decisions (and must live with them) are those that love you.

It should be up to no one else! It certainly pays to make a WILL then these sorts of debates won't take place. Your requests become your responsibility and no one elses.

Whoever is still hanging on with her case, this is a sum-up of everything had happened...

It´s a complicated situation and I think that decision is up to the family.
