I heard about this the other day. I think the government requiring a dead person to remain on a ventilator is really creepy and disturbing. The choice to remove support should be made by her family if she doesn't have an advanced directive. My question is: who the heck is paying for this?? It is incredibly expensive to keep her on this kind of support. The family shouldn't be made to pay for this if it's against their wishes. I kind of doubt insurance will cover keeping a dead person ventilated. As a tax payer, I don't want to pay for this.
