There are enormous differences between coma, persistent vegetative state, and brain death.

Certain modern medical practices don’t prolong life, they prolong dying. I fail to see that as somehow an advancement.

“...enormous differences between coma, persistent vegetative state, and brain death.”

Good point. Even with all the medical people in my immediate and extended family, I hadn’t even thought about it in those terms.
