Christopher Reeve was on a vent. Stephen Hawkings is now on a vent and writing a book.
A *lot* of people go onto a vent while they heal.
Why is it so unreasonable to try to help this girl? For three weeks, she’s received no medical attention (other than the vent and dealing with her other - perfectly healthy - bodily functions) and NO food or nutrition.
What would the harm have been? If the doctors were right, then she’d be dying anyway and the parents could at least know that everything had been done.
Isn’t that how we’re supposed to treat children??
Wasn’t it reported that this girl suffered a cardiac arrest? If so, 90% do not survive cardiac arrest and of those who do, only about 2 % do not have medical issues afterwards in terms of memory and other organ issues. Does anyone have any info on the cardiac arrest report?
everything was done. The parents are a heart break . Their daughter is gone and they have no way to deal with it except denial. If you have read about the case you know that this is not one doc or even two docs but a total of five docs three of whom were approved or picked by the family. All of the medical evaluation is the same.
Your examples are not pertinent in this situation since neither Reeve nor Hawking had been declared brain dead.
The girl is dead. At least three doctors and a coroner have determined that. She needs to be laid to rest. She is dead.
Christopher Reeve was not brain dead. Neither is Steven Hawkings.
Nothing can be done because she is dead.
