Now, despite any of that, I believe it should be up to the family and not the hospital to pull the plug.
And for how long should the hospital keep Jahi hooked up, at a rough cost of $10,000/day, to a machine that could otherwise be used to save someone else's life?

I could see that hospital refusing to treat her anymore. What I can't see is why the parents aren't allowed to find a facility willing to take this young girl or being allowed to take their daughter home.
Disconnecting life support is one thing. Forcing the girl to stay in that hospital violates the parents' rights. Wasn't that actually what the issue came down to in the Terry Schiavo outrage?
