I answered the obvious; No. If she is suffering now, then she has been suffering for 15 years !!! Her parents are insane and cruel IMHO.

5. I agree with you Willy Lee; maybe shouldn't have posted it...but it is
true, that if she is in pain now because of no 'feeding' (all artificial) then she has been in pain for 15 years.

3. Did they check their brains at the door?
If she were conscious, and if she did have a painful condition, the hospice workers would keep her comfortable with pain killers.

Duh! freepers. That's what hospice is for.

8. I agree with you; she has no cerebral cortex (or extremely
minimal from what I'vd viewed on the CT Scan. But some are arguing that she can feel the pain of hunger. If she can feel hunger pain, then she has been in pain for 15 years. (trapped in a body that can't communicate) What loved one would possibly want that? Even if it were the case, for which I find no compelling evidence. Brain dead is brain dead. My precious dog will get euthanasia.
