    She's still...Around. Though brain-dead, her body is still functioning.

    Mom: Hopeful signs seen in teen called brain dead | New Pittsburgh Courier

    If she's well and truly dead, then nothing being done to keep her body working allowing for hope and recovery is wrong or causing her harm. But I find it hard to denounce such efforts when someone's body is still working albeit with medical assistance. How the medical industry defines death has frequently changed over time as better technology and methodology came to exist. More sensitive machines able to detect fainter signs of life come into use so giving up all hope is always premature. If her body's working, brain-dead or not, give her a chance at surprising everyone.

    To me, this is a choice that has to be made by those closest to the person in this condition. Were I to be in that state, I would hope that they would pull the plug. But that is my own take on life speaking, and those that feel otherwise have every right to make their decisions according to their own guiding principles.

    She's still dead. Nothing done to her can possibly cause harm. Her body is not working. The machines are working.

    When my sis was taken off life support my mother never fully recovered from the loss. She lived a dead life.

    Bodies are just biological machines. If a mechanical machine can continue an organism's life-functions, and the only thing not working is the brain (as near as our current technology can determine) than not giving the person a chance at spontaneous recovery is unfortunate.

    If this were me I'd want everything done to contonue mye xistence. Course, I'm only 42, what I might feel at 60, 80, and beyond remains to be seen. But right now, I'll only die kicking and screaming. :)

    McMath has no existence. She's dead. The machines aren't facilitating her existence. They are simply doing what machines do.

    Yeah, like this guy?

    Steven Thorpe: Teenager declared brain-dead by FOUR doctors makes miracle recovery | Mail Online

    Remember when people used to be told that vegetative state patients were good as dead? Well here is a comatose patient that not only recovered but could hear things going on around him while he was in a coma.

    'Locked in a coma, I could hear people talking around me' - Telegraph

    These doctors want the organs to make millions in transplant operations and lie saying they know what they do not know.

    A person is not dead until the flesh is rotting and falling off their bones feeding the worms.

    Do you understand the difference between being in a coma and being dead?
