    'Vegetative state' man responds to questions

    Do any of my left wing friends remember the case a couple of years ago where they had the doctors pulled the feeding tubes of a young woman in vegetative forcing her to starve to death........Here is a similar case where a so called vegetive man is responding.....I hope you lefties sleep well tonight knowing you might have killed that woman that Jeb Bush and Conservatives wanted to keep feeding her........

    London, England (CNN) -- A man presumed to have been in a vegetative state for five years has communicated with the outside world for the first time since suffering severe head injuries in a car crash, researchers said Thursday.

    The finding by British and Belgian researchers has huge implications for the care and treatment of patients in a coma-like state. It comes two months after a Belgian car crash victim whose condition was misdiagnosed as a vegetative state for 23 years was revealed to have been conscious the whole time.

    Question, would you like to live like this? I personally would not. I thing the study results are way to early to tell if it is 100% accurate. What they are seeing may or may not be what they think it is showing.

    As far as saying Jeb Bush may have "killed" that women. Even by your post there is a 83% odd he did not. Only 17% of the comotose patients showed any signs.

    Jeb Bush values life and wanted to keep her alive.......You can say that you would not want that but that is not your call and if you were in that situation you might change your mind if you knew there was hope like this guy found out........What if the lefties had tried to kill hhim?

    Sorry, mis read your first post.

    Now for your response. Our you saying I have no right to how I am to be medically treated? That is what medical directives, living wills are for.

    BTW. I am no where near left in political views.

    Schiavo again, really? Failing to extend her life and killing her are two different concepts. If she didn't leave a living will or other such instructions for whether or not to keep her in a coma then the decision falls upon her husband, who would have been responsible for her care. The government should've had nothing to do with it.

    Schiavo was worse off, this would not have worked with her, she had no awareness. Hope that they find a easier way to help the guy communicate.
