I haven't seen a topic such as this, but if there is one then feel free to close :)


Hi!

1* If some one is legally Brain Dead, is it ethical to pull the plug or not? and would u do so, if u were in that position?

2* If some one is in a Coma, is it ethical to pull the plug no matter how long the sleep is? and would u do so if put in that situation?

1* I think that if a person is brain dead, then yes it is ok to pull the plug, BUT he must be truly BRAIN DEAD!

the brain does not regenerate its self. and with no brain, there is no person. its just an alive nothing.

if i was put in that situation God forbid; I don't know, but I wouldn't keep a dead person alive, and perhaps the hospital wouldnt either.


2* If the person is in a coma, I think its murder to pull the plug. the person is NOT dead and has a brain and perhaps dreams. Coma is a Greek word meaning "deep sleep" so the person is not dead. even if he/she was in a coma for 5000000years, I cant pull it, its not my place, it is murder. If it was expensive to keep him/her alive, then preserving life is more precious than preserving wealth.

what do u think?

i think it would be better to pull the plug...... so that you can do something good with his/ her organs... the person would probably want you to do that...maybe

Studies have been shown that there's a possibility that the brain could create the connections of neurones back in place when they are lost,however,no one knows how,so even if the person's brain dead i think there's a possibility to survive.

coma does not = brain dead.

if he is not brain dead, but is in a coma(deeeep sleeeep) u know like when some one falls in the freeezing water, then is sleeping for years but not brain dead.

if it was me i would like to have someone pull the plug.. i don't want to become such a pitty existence..
the brain suffers too much damage and you would neither be able to talk or read, much less write..
also you will have huge difficulties conversing with everyone else..

As for coma.. i wouldn't like to sleep that long..
