So if we stopped government funding for those “so called heroic procedures” you’d be OK with that??

I'm OK with people making decisions after knowing the facts. The procedures are carried out without consulting the family or informing them of the benefit or lack of benefit to the patient. They are done to enrich the hospital at the expense of the taxpayer. If a patient is terminal and their death is eminent then they should be relieved of as much pain as possible and allowed a dignified death. If there is a chance of extending their life so they will have more quality time then that should happen. Living an extra two months in a coma is not living IMHO!!
