Read Andrew McCarthy's piece over at National Review Online. Advance medical directives are important, but are not the end-all, be all, particularly in the case of a husband determined to pull the plug on his wife. MCarthy's piece presents a compelling argument that the appropriate testing has not been done to support a diagnosis of persistant vegetative state. It used to be that we erred on the side of not ending someone's life, as in death penalty cases. Now, they only need to qualify as inconvenient because they are profoundly handicapped, or brain-impaired, or it was a one-night stand with someone who won't return calls . . . So much for the promise "in sickness and in health"
