"She has been no more alive than a turnip for over ten years, they are simply stopping the extreme body support measures that should have stopped after a week or so."

When my mom, who had signed a living will and filed it with her nursing home had her final stroke, she was flat on her back and unconscious. She was permitted to die because everybody involved knew she wanted it, and she had signed papers to direct that it happen.

I just saw a video of Terri S. sitting up with her eyes open and responding to some music being played for her. She didn't look like any turnip to me.

I sat with my mom during her last days, and I have seen video of Terri. Their situations are not the same, IMO.
