Wow, the irony in this post is absolutely astounding.A quick caveat. I had a longer response drafted but the browser crashed.
Ultimately, that's fine. The original post was more polite, and as I was parsing and responding, I realized just how trashy and uncivil what I was responding to was.
Brevity seems more appropriate anyway in light of that.
You don't appear to know the difference between brain death and a coma. Since this nuance is lost on you, I will proceed as though we were talking about brain death.
The brain dead are not alive. So no, the dead are not really comparable to the living. That is a significant difference, also.
Perhaps you should work on your own poor rhetorical support for the human rights abuse for abortion before you criticize others? Here, let me help you with that by tearing this nonsense apart.
First of all, I don't believe in mandating healthcare services, and especially not for the brain dead. If you want a service, you pay for it. If the patient's wishes were for all possible measures, and this was put into writing or told to a medical power of attorney, by all means, follow those wishes until there are no financial resources left... at which point no one is obliged to provide them for free and someone sometime before then probably advised against going so far. But no one is obliged to request healthcare services and no one should be obliged to give them.
Bluntly, whatever possible relevance you are trying to draw between letting the dead be dead and violently killing someone who is alive... is quite obscure. Hell, just isolate your false equivalency between killing and letting die and you've aready got a logic problem regardless of the specifics of the conversation's context.
There's no hypocrisy in letting someone die who wants to die or for not artificially sustaining the tissues of the brain dead... while also wanting laws to punish inflicting a violent death upon the living. These are almost entirely unrelated concepts and you have done a terrible job trying to link them, which to be fair, was kind of guaranteed when you tried in the first place. Hopefully you won't make such a ridiculous error of logic in the future, but you may also wish to beware Murphy's Law and its various corrolaries... when you go off on a long rant calling others idiots and illogical, you're probably more likely to say something stupid.
