This is so sad.
The poor little thing has become a pawn in a needless battle.
She wasn’t brain dead. She was alive, but in a persistent vegetative state. That is why she was able to live for years after the respirator was removed.
Just the response I would expect from a progressive.
You know nothing about this child, her health or the circumstances of her surgery, other than what you read on the internet. I guess that makes you “tag” the “loon”.
You have no intimate knowledge of this case, you are commenting based on internet news articles and “statements” put out by the hospital reps. Get off of the “corpse” comments... how cold is your heart?
He had no brain activity and then they put him in an induced coma to take the pressure off his brain. Today, they would have been cutting him up for his organs.
Several physicians have examined her and performed the rigorous, several component protocol for determining brain death. Even the independent physicians hired by the family came to the same conclusion, that she is brain dead. I trust their judgment--after all, they have been trained and have experience with this.
Brain death is not a coma--the brain is literally dead and decomposing. By now, what remains inside the skull probably has little resemblance to a brain. When the brain died, everything that was Jahi died. What is on the ventilator *is* a corpse. All that has been achieved by keeping the body ventilated is that the decay process has been slowed down--not stopped, but slowed. Death is not reversible.
As a woman with a lot of compassion and warm heart, I am utterly appalled by this situation. I see a family in deep denial who has been horribly misserved by the justice system. When the judge ruled that the body can stay indefinitely on a ventilator and that the family can even remove it from the hospital, this case entered horror movie territory. At this point, I am not sure that the denial will end when the heart stops beating. This family needs counseling, not some condescending judge who is afraid to put his foot down to stop a horrific situation.
On the bright side, little Jahi is completely unaware of the abuse of her body. Unless she is watching from heaven.
This situation is so utterly horrific, and did not need to occur.
You also know nothing about this child, her health, and her circumstances other than what you’ve read on the Internet.
My obesity post was based on her picture, which the family submitted to the media, and my own research on her surgery that the family and hospital admit she had.
Will your next response be the old I’m rubber and you’re glue taunt? That’s about the level at which you communicate here.
