Ah, but the correct procedures were followed. That’s all that really matters! /s
Whew! After reading the headline, I was afraid she was going to recover and find her corneas removed or something!
Buddy: Hi, Mom! Hi, Dad! I'm not in a coma any more!
Mrs. Dionosopolis: Thank God!
Mr. Dionosopolis: [ embarrassed ] Buddy..? Buddy..?
Buddy: [ raising finger ] Ohhhhh.. what are you doing? Were you pulling the plug on me!
Mr. Dionosopolis: [ trying to explain ] Buddy, the doctor told us you were a vegetable.
Doctor: I, for one, am baffled!
Buddy: But pulling the plug!
Mrs. Dionosopolis: Buddy, we were just doing what you told your father about "dying with dignity", you know? If you ever got hit in the head with a sledgehammer and had to be kept alive by machines? You remember!
Buddy: I never said anything like that, Mom.
Mr. Dionosopolis: Oh, yeahh.. you remember, don't you? It was that one day, remember? You weren't asking yourself, you were real strange.. I thought, "Gee, that's not like Buddy, wants to die like that.." But I figured, what the heck, okay! You said it, though! You said, it, you just forgot!
Buddy: [ laughing ] I probably forgot about it!
Mr. Dionosopolis: Well, buddy, do you fell good enough to go home?
Buddy: [ excited ] Yeah, that would be just great!
Mrs. Dionosopolis: Alright. I'll fix you a nice big lunch!
Mr. Dionosopolis: And we'll go hunting first thing next week, okay? [ turns to Doctor ] Thanks a lot, Doctor! Thanks for almost killing little Buddy!
[ family exits hospital room ]
Doctor: Well, excuuuuuuuuuuuuuse me!
I’m not dead yet.
BTW, Is Joe Biden an organ donor?
Whether a person in a coma can eventually recover is a separate question. But so long as the body is still functioning (heart, lungs, etc.), that person is alive, and removing a critical organ amounts to murder.
If, after they had pulled the plug and the patient didn’t die, the doctors killed her to get the organs, people would be horrified. That is, however, 0’s position on abortion.
I guess I can be thankful that, at my age, none of my vital organs look valuable to anyone.
Of course, the downside is that when I become frail, the Dear Leader’s Death Panel will have me euthanized.
It could have went like this.
