There is a difference between futile care, and futile lives. DSS determined that Haleigh's life was futile. There was nothing futile about her care. It was doing what it was designed to do. And DSS recognized this. What they didn't recognize was that Haleigh has as much right to live as anyone else. They intended to euthanize her, by depriving her of food and water, and giving her morphine. That is euthanasia.

They were going to pass Haleigh's vital organs around too but calls to action saved her life.

Can you give me a link on that? I need to refresh my memory, and most of what I've pulled up so far talks about the doctors saying no recovery and the state just going along and wanting to pull the respirator.
