Our medical technology is developing to the point of keeping a great many brain injured, etc. patients alive for extended periods of time.

I've got a newsflash for you, FOOD AND WATER IS NOT "MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY" AND WE ALL NEED IT.

You may certainly disagree, but artificially receiving food and water for several years with little hope of change, is not really living - if not unconscious, it could be a severe form of torture. You might want to decide these matters for others but I do not.

Obviously, artificial administration of food and water is not the extent of our medical technology. My point involved more than just this individual case.
