even though he can't do anything??? he's practically lifeless?? it hurts to even breath but he can't say anything. that's heartless!!
I would only do it if asked for or if i could see the pain. Your comparason is weak like your arguement. So many flaws. I don't even know why I'm wasting my time.
Being a vegetable is hardly experiencing life. Simply being alive is not the most grand of things.#
I think that's what she was trying to say with the grandpa ... uh... analogy. If you have an old man on life support who's bed ridden, can't do anything, is it ethical or unethical to pull the plug. He sits there all day. Those who say it's ethical to keep him alive say it's because he gets to stay alive, those who say it's unethical is because being bedridden isn't really experience the fruits of life. Likewise, if someone were in a coma, the whole thing becomes even more difficult, because of your quote:
I would only do it if asked for or if i could see the pain.
Do you still keep him alive even if it's been years with no sign of recovery? It's fairly off-topic, but the overall issue is of ethics and that's the important thing to understand.
